Here’s a look at the annual Asheville Wing War, which was held on Sunday afternoon at the Asheville Music Hall. It featured piled of specialty wings done up by a selection of Asheville’s independent restaurants. You could have your wings flavored with Cheerwine, apple butter, stout beer, jerk-style, buffalo-style and much, much more. The event benefitted MANNA Food Bank. A group of judges, in a blind taste test, picked the winners.

Jason…wasn’t Stu a judge? or was he just there to get love by all the fine women there?
Nevermind…helps reading whole article
I can totally do two things at the same time, Mark! 🙂 That was one of the top 100 most fun days of my entire life.
Is Moe’s Original a local independent? Everybody else seems to be a one off-there are like 30 Moe’s.
I think there are two different “Moe’s” in town. There’s Moe’s BBQ down in Biltmore Village, and then the Moe’s burrito joint that is everywhere.
Where was Rocky’s?
I was definitely also wondering that.
Rocky’s was definitely invited however they declined. They do have a delicious wing there!
I wondered the same thing! Seems like you can’t have an Asheville wing contest without Rockys Hot Chicken Shack!
