Does everyone know about the wing bowl? 

In Philly, every year, about 20,000 wing eating fanatics get together for every kind of wing eating contest and general debauchery. After looking at the photos on http://www.610wip.com/Wing-Bowl-17-Recap/5844384 it looks like a frat party gone very wrong or very right! We can't quite decide yet.

With that in mind, we are trying to secure tickets to the wingbowl so we can see up close and personal just how crazy this will be. We will let you know how that works out.

Long live the wing.

Well, our weekend started a bit early this week on Thursday with our “Lord of the Wings” eating contest starring

none other than Frodo Baggins himself, Elijah Wood. Fellow Kluckrs, Elijah is a very high quality guy and defies

all stereotypes about famous people.

Easy to get on with, we all had a really fun night and the participants were true Kluckrs.

The rules were set by our co host David Ortiz

As many cleaned wings as possible in 5 minutes. I think 45 wings in five minutes was the winning number.

This was held at Epsteins Bar in Manhattan which is an easy going place with a ton of character. 

 

We decided that we will do this again so stay tuned. Oh and next time we throw out an invite...come!!! It was a ton of fun!

Long live the wing!

Its 2010 and just 76 days ago we launched Kluckr. Since then you have helped to make it the largest consolidated database of wing locations in the U.S.A, dare we say THE WORLD!

There’s an idea out there that says people will talk about what they want to talk about…and not much else. Well guess what Kluckr’s, you all like to talk about wings.  Over 60% of Kluckr members are taking part in the conversation by adding rating and reviewing wing joints. Whats that mean? Well, on the internet, the general rule of thumb is that only about 10% of community members generally add content and you guys have just blown that statistic out of the water. Congratulations.

2010 will be a banner year. We are off to a terrific start. Lets keep it going everyone. ADD RATE REVIEW!
