As the sun sets on a summer’s day, the tantalizing aroma of spicy, tangy, and succulent chicken wings fills the air. The occasion? National Wing Day, is a celebration dedicated to one of the most beloved culinary delights that has captured the hearts and taste buds of millions around the globe. On this special day, enthusiasts, foodies, and families come together to savor and rejoice in the flavorful world of wings, raising a toast to the delectable indulgence that has become a gastronomic sensation.
Origin of National Wing Day
The origins of this holiday can be traced back to Buffalo, New York. This is where the modern buffalo wing was first created. In 1964, the Anchor Bar’s Teressa Bellissimo is said to have prepared deep-fried chicken wings tossed in hot sauce for her son and his friends. This inadvertently gave birth to a culinary legend. Over the years, the popularity of wings skyrocketed. It has become a staple in sports bars, restaurants, and backyard gatherings. To commemorate this finger-licking creation, National Wing Day was established.

I personally plan on getting a 10-pack of wings from Taco Mac since they have a fantastic deal of 50% off all 6 and 10-pack orders. However, if you are looking for other options, there are plenty of them available. For instance, 7-Eleven is offering loyalty members a fabulous deal on 8-piece Korean BBQ wings for only $3.
