“ eating wings with someone shows vulnerability . The acceptance that you are going to get your hands and face messy . It feels so good putting the vibe out there that if you can ’ t handle me eating wings , then you don ’ t deserve to be with me .”
whatever the hottie is talking about . I got honest with myself , that I was just going to be unapologetically me . Wings and all .
Eating wings with someone shows vulnerability . The acceptance that you are going to get your hands and face messy . It feels so good putting the vibe out there that if you can ’ t handle me eating wings , then you don ’ t deserve to be with me .
So , if you are tired of salad dates , here are my favorite places to get wings :
Euclid Avenue Yacht Club Or Yacht Club , as it ’ s known , in Little 5 Points is one of my favorite places . Come here late in the evening before going to a show at Variety Playhouse or on any night you want some exceptionally good bar wings . With neighbors like The Vortex and The Porter , it ’ s easy to get overshadowed but this will give you plenty of cool points with that hot tattooed hipster you ’ re macking on . You ’ re in for traditional wing flavors and the option to get them swimming . Hell yes .
Park Bar I work downtown so there are quite a few times I get a wing hankering . Park Bar , across from Centennial Olympic Park , is a great neighborhood pub with crispy wings that always are tossed well . If your tab totals a certain amount , you can spin the wheel for free booze . This is a great spot after a Tabernacle show or when you ’ re going ice skating in the park .
Fox Brothers BBQ Fox Brothers always has the sickest BBQ in the game . This atmosphere is fun and lively . Ditch the pulled pork for their famous smoked wings . They are juicy , tender , smoky and well-seasoned . I order them with the sauce on the side because the wing is even good without it ! I have never met a man who didn ’ t get excited about wings like these .
