Tampa Bay Wing Fling

I dug out my awesome Lou And Gee "Where's My Bourbon?" t-shirt and headed on over to Curtis Hixon Park for the Inaugural Tampa Bay Wing Fling!!

My wife and I took in the sights and sounds from the VIP booth, complete with bottomless Bourbon drinks #MyFavorite. While in the VIP area, we tried wings from Buffalo Wild Wings, Zukku, and Ry Ry's (which, those folks have the best url in the history of food websites)

The line for the Street Surfer food truck was constant the whole afternoon

Out of all of the restaurants we tried, we both had to vote for Street Surfer for best wings. Their sauce was sweet with a nice peppery finish to give it a little bit of kick. Also, get you some loaded cheese fries: it's a religous experience for sure!

I certainly ate my weight in chicken wings and drank enough bourbon for a straight year. But, that being said, I hope I get to go to the Second Annual Tampa Bay Wing Fling!
