Americans consume more than 1.4 billion wings on Super Bowl weekend alone, according to the National Chicken Council, and the pandemic has only fueled our passion for poultry. (So ​​much so that a shortage of wings was reported in 2021.)

“Demand for chicken wings has skyrocketed since the start of the pandemic,” NCC spokesperson Tom Super said in a statement earlier this year, pointing to the “shift from seating to serving restaurants. takeaway and quick “during the block.

National Chicken Wing Day is July 29, when bars, restaurants and fast-food restaurants nationwide offer deals on wings, both bone-in and boneless.

Ironically, the chicken wing has historically been a largely overlooked part of the bird, usually thrown away or used in soups or broths. The idea of ​​frying and spreading them in hot sauce is generally attributed to the Bellissimo family, who ran the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, New York in the early 1960s.

At least that’s what the fathers of the city of Buffalo believed in 1977 when they published a proclamation celebrating co-owner of the bar Frank Bellissimo and declaring July 29 as Chicken Wing Day.

The Anchor Bar is still around, but you can celebrate National Chicken Wing Day almost anywhere in the United States. Below are just a few of the places where you can get free or discounted wings on July 29th.
