Ain’t No Thing Like Chicken Wings
Are you a fan of chicken wings?
The Anchor Bar in Buffalo (New York), 1964 is widely accepted as the birthplace and year of the World Famous Buffalo Chicken Wings. Every legend starts somewhere, right?
These spicy, red hot sauce covered treats form the foundation of a culinary staple in the United States. They symbolize a crucial piece of Americana, primarily because they are synonymous with American Football.
Anything that goes together well with football is usually accepted as an American icon, such as tailgating, BBQ and beers.
Have you ever been to a bar for some wings and football?
If not, it’s a must experience. In fact, there are entire restaurants/ publicly traded companies, such as Buffalo Wild Wings that solely offer this food, essentially.
Fun Facts about Chicken Wings:
1) Buffalo chicken wings got their popularity specifically because of the Buffalo Bills.
2) July 29th is National Chicken Wing day.
3) The record for most chicken wings eaten is 444 in 26 minutes… Someone probably felt awesome the next day 🙂
An important side note:
Deep fried chicken wings are a longtime tradition in American cooking, especially in the South. They predate the 1964 creation of the illustrious Buffalo Wing. While they were already around the nation, it was in the North where these bad boys really took flight as a national staple.
Now, you can find them accompanied by an extraordinary assortment of sauces all over the United States. These sauces include, but are not limited to: Teriyaki, BBQ, Garlic Parmesan, Chipotle, and Super Hot & Spicy.

Necessity is the mother of invention…
Just as there was clearly a space for Buffalo Wings in the world in the 60s, there is now space for chicken wings in Barcelona. CocoVail Beer Hall serves a variety of chicken wings and is adding to the flavor choices continually.
