I’ve recently posted nineteen pictures on my Instagram page of aaalllll the different chicken wings that the judges had to eat at the 2016 Asheville Wing War.

I’ll pick one lucky winner from all the people who heart my pics or follow my account between now and Wednesday March 9th, 2016, and I will personally treat them to a plate of award winning wings, plus a tasty side, and a beverage at Mojo Kitchen & Lounge!

IMAGINE: Me, you, and plate full of chicken wings. #magic

Below please find the 12th installment of my video blog, which I call Food Fans HQ. This one gives a short rundown of my involvement with the 5th Annual Asheville Wing War.

In the video I say that I ate various numbers of wings from various numbers of competitors. The truth is that I ate 20 wings from 10 competitors. I think… whatever… It was an assload o’ wings.

Also in the video I thank Kelly Densen “for being there,” but I meant to thank her for inviting me to be there. She’s the producer of the annual Wing Wars here in Asheville, so… duh… of course she was there.

WARNING: There are curse words.
