wing_war_2014Check it out. Press release here:

Lush Life Productions is once again preparing for an event in which local bars and restaurants in Asheville battle it out for the title of “Asheville’s Best Buffalo Wings”. With a ticket that includes unlimited wings, beer (while supplies last) and great local music, this event has sold out in the past and is sure to sell out again.
The competition will heat up at Asheville Music Hall at 4pm on March 9. The wings will be judged by a panel of celebrity judges in two categories: specialty and traditional buffalo style. There will also be a people’s choice award in which attendees have the opportunity to vote for their favorite.
Beer: All of the beer will be provided by Sierra Nevada and Pisgah Brewing and will be included in the ticket price.
