I never really liked wings before this summer…
Little did I know what I had coming to me.
I began an excursion of weekly trips to Buffalo Wild Wings (commonly referred to as “B-Dubs”) with a good friend of mine, in celebration of 40-cent wing Tuesdays. These dinners were always a fun time, and became very habitual. The meal was always the same: 12 wings, medium sauce, wet (extra sauce on them), a basket of potato wedges with medium sauce on the side for dipping, and an order of Ultimate Nachos (if we were hungry enough). This, accompanied by a good baseball game and copious amounts of water, always led to a very full stomach and another successful night at B-Dubs.
When I came down to Miami, I have to admit the first few Tuesdays nights did feel somewhat empty… and I’m not referring just to my stomach. I missed the ambiance of B-Dubs just as much as I missed the food itself. While I won’t be able to replace the ambiance of the restaurant, I have certainly tried to replace the wings. I’ve tried the wings at almost every restaurant I’ve been at since I came down here, including:
- TGI Friday’s
Unfortunately, none of these establishments could come close to matching the flavor, fall-off-the-bone goodness that B-Dubs’s wings embody. Not to say that they weren’t good, they just weren’t the same. Maybe it is the ambiance that makes the food, after all.
Anyway, I’m not going to be home on a Tuesday until Winter Break, but I may just have to splurge the extra 10 cents per wing to enjoy some quality B-Dubs over Thanksgiving Break with my good friend Jay… it’s just too good to pass up!
