Ain't No Thang But A...

In the culinary world, one creation sticks in the minds and on the fingers of foodies and casual snackers like none other. Be it sporting event, outdoor picnic, dive bar, or five-star restaurant, no one in the history of noms ever said no to a chicken wing. Even vegetarians have buckled under the weight of that savory glory. The search for the perfect chicken wing is endless, but you’ll get your chance to taste some of the best sauce-slathered and dry-rubbed goodness Miami has to offer at the deliciously daring WingFest. Head to the BankUnited Center (1245 Dauer Dr., Coral Gables) Sunday at noon and eat your fill of wings from fine local establishments such as Buffalo Wild Wings, Sports Grill, and Bru’s Room. Bring a napkin and an empty stomach, and then stay to cheer on the University of Miami basketball team against Wake Forest. Tickets for the game cost $22 and come complete with entry to WingFest when ordered online with the promo code “WING.” It’s easy for restaurants to say they’ve got the best wings in town, but finally, you can be the judge.
