Buffalo Wings and Beer Week Spotlight on the Kite and the Key

A month in at the Kite and the Key, Justin Hoke, formerly on Perrier's payroll, is doing quite well at n Franklintown.

I ate there twice last week. One time it was the Vermouth mussels (which have since been pulled despite their deliciousness, Butternut squash, pancetta, cream).

Then Lance got Coconut Rice Pudding Spring Rolls to feed his sugar baby.

Our impromptu double date of the evening, these folks, got these wings. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

They said they were good. I smelled the heat from two feet away, which isn't a bad thing as long as there's a hydrant of Racer 5 near by.

I love wings. I am a bit of a wuss.
But I still order them anyway.

Here's a bit of history on the traditional Buffalo wing from about.com

"The historic creation date for Buffalo Wings was October 30, 1964, when owner Teressa Bellissimo was faced with feeding her son and his friends a late snack. Having an excess of chicken wings on hand, she fried up the wings, dipped them in a buttered spicy chile sauce, and served them with celery and blue cheese dressing as a dipping sauce to cut the heat. The wings were an instant hit."

The Kite and the Key are majorly involved with Beer Week and had the amazing foresight to plan way in advance so they have quite the line up.
Here's a looksie at some of it-=-=I'll be doing this for other bars and restaurants as well. Not listing everyone, cuz Lord knows I dont' have time. But I'll do what I can, when I can.
