Chicken Wings Burn Down Apartment

Cooking chicken wings starts Tampa apartment fire

Posted: 10/10/2010

By: Chad Cookler
TAMPA - A man's attempt to cook chicken wings Sunday afternoon sparked a fire that damaged several Tampa apartments.

According to Tampa Fire Rescue, 23-year-old Zachary Lesinski was frying the wings around 1 p.m. when the grease boiled over onto the stovetop and caught fire.

Lesinski tried to smother the blaze but couldn't so he called 9-1-1 as he ran out his home, located at the Cove Apartments on Westshore Blvd.

Firefighters got the flames under control in about 20 minutes and were able to stop the fire from consuming the entire building.

The fire did moderate damage to Lesinski's apartment and caused some smoke and water damage in 3 other apartments. Damage to the building is estimated at $100,000.

The American Red Cross is helping those displaced by the fire.

Championship Sports Bar & Grill - home of the garlic Parmesan wings????

Championship Sports Bar & Grill

by: Elyse Convery

I see a lot of rock shows for my boyfriend AJ's band at a bar called Championships in Trenton NJ. Usually when I get food there I'll get a burger and fries or a cheesesteak. But I always see the part of the menu that says "home of the garlic Parmesan wings".

Today, I got them, and they were delicious. It took a while for the wings to come out because of how large the show was. The bar is small, but the music crowd they bring in Is huge. I listened to a band play while I waited, and then the wings came.

I ordered 12 instead of 6 because I was really hungry. The garlic Parmesan wings were the right choice. They were tangy, but not spicy. They had just enough sauce that wasn't sticky but stayed on the chicken. The wings were fried, which I liked.

Usually, when you think chicken wings, there are hot wings, mild wings, and barbecue wings. The garlic Parmesan wings were something I've never tried before, but I was not disappointed.

My Wednesday night wing cravings led me to Curran's Irish Inn, Palmyra, NJ. It was their special wing night, where you get $0.35 wings between 6pm and 11pm (must order 10) plus tax...$3.75, still a GREAT price for 10 wings.

When I walked in, I was rather surprised to not see as many people there for wing night as usual. I'd say there was about 12 tables with 2 - 4 people at each. So I figured, at least service will be quick... boy, was I wrong. Both waitresses walked by us and said nothing. There were no bus boys so the two tables that we were eyeing up for our view of the Phillies game, of course had customer residue on them both. Finally, a waitress stopped to clear off the empty glasses and old placemats...Oh, and she forgot to ask us our drink order or tell us she'd be back. So the wait continued...and the other girl came by to tell us, the other waitress (who just cleared our table) would be right with us. After about 10 minutes of waiting, finally the second girl (not the one who cleared our table and didn't acknowledge us) came back and took our order for drinks and told us it was wings night (35 cent wings, 4 domestic bottles for 10$ and pitchers of soda for 4$). As she went to get our drinks, the other waitress came back to take our drink order...too late, hah! I think if I wasn't writing this review, I may have walked out prior to this.

Once we had our drinks, we knew what we wanted to order, after all we had 15 minutes to decide already...and it wasn't my first trip around the block. We ordered 20 cajun, 15 hot, and 15 BBQ.

The bar has nice flat screen tvs (8) positioned around the room so you can get a spot pretty much anywhere and see a TV...only problem they all had the same thing on, which was fine at the time since it was the Phils game.

Our food came out relatively quick, which could have been a concern, since it took 15 minutes to ask us what we wanted to drink. But once I bit into the first wing, my concerns were gone.

I started with the Cajun wings. Now, I'm not sure I'd call these cajun, as they do not have your typical hot/spicy cajun spice to them (so they are suitable for all you wusses out there). They are seasoned generously, yet not too greasy and drippy. The wing itself was nice and crisp outside, with a juicy/tender inside. Paired with their cracked peppercorn blue cheese they are simply wonderful.

Next I went to the Hot wings. These were equally as delicious as the Cajun wings...also a great change of pace if you are a 20 wing kind of person (10 hot and 10 cajun would be a perfect order.. I tend to get sick of eating the same thing until I get a house cat or goldfish would do). The sauce on the hot wings is very flavorful with a nice light kick to it, probably more comparable to a medium at the "Macho Wing Sauce" places we often times see, but I'm not here for a competition. I like my hot, not too hot, with great flavor and nice spice, they were actually hotter than the last time I was here. Again, they were nice and crisp outside, perfectly done inside.

On to the BBQ. Very sweet/tangy sauce...not bad. The sweet sauce was another good changeup during the meal...paired with the blue cheese, I was lovin it! Although, I know a lot of people would say I'm crazy putting a BBQ wing into blue cheese...Hey, it made sense, give it a whirl!

Wingology 101: Curran's Irish Inn, 5 W. Broad St., Palmyra, NJ 08065, 856-314-8214

Sauce - almost a dry rub of great flavors (not a typical Cajun, yet delicious)
Skin - crispy
Chicken - juicy/tender

Sauce - a typical Medium or slightly above (good taste)
Skin - crispy
Chicken - juicy/tender

Sauce - sweet, great pace change, probably get sick of them after 10 though
Skin - little less crispy due to sauce
Chicken - juicy/tender

Blue Cheese: AMAZING! it is cracked peppercorn infused and adds great flavor to the wings.

All orders served with a generous Blue Cheese portion and plenty of celery...if you're into that kind of thing.

Regular Prices : 10 for $8.50
20 for $14.75
50 for $30.75

Wednesday Special: 10 wings for $3.50 plus tax

Flavors: Hot, Medium, Mild, Plain, Cajun, BBQ, Garlic

Final Thought: Overall I think their wings are wonderful, they are a smaller wing, but pack a great punch! Wings normal price are 85 cents a piece (10 for $8.50), so by joining the Curran's crew on a Wednesday, you save more than 50% on your meal! The Blue Cheese is Delicious if you are a fan, TVs are very nice, Nice open spaced bar, Very clean restaurant and bathrooms. Daily Specials on food and drinks. The service I would say is their biggest downfall, but if you can get past that and can spare a few extra minutes the wait will be worth it.

Virginia woman devours 181 chicken wings in 12 minutes to set new record September 6, 2010, 5:14pm NEW YORK (AP) – The Black Widow of eating contests gobbled up nearly 181 chicken wings in 12 minutes, devouring the national championship record in Buffalo on Sunday.

“I’m so happy!” said Sonya Thomas, who ate 4.86 pounds of chicken wings to win the contest, besting world eating marvel Joey Chestnut at the ninth annual National Buffalo Wing Festival.

Buffalo, about 480 kilometers northwest of New York, is said to be the birthplace of the wings, typically fried and covered in tangy vinegar and hot sauce.

Chestnut, America’s No. 1 professional eater, was favored to win Sunday’s competition. He came in second after eating 169 chicken wings, or 4.55 pounds.

This was the first time Thomas, of Alexandria, Virginia, and Chestnut, of San Jose, California, faced off in a chicken wing eating contest. They went at it “neck and neck,” said Drew Cerza, the founder of the festival, which was inspired by the 2001 Bill Murray comedy “Osmosis Jones,” about a compulsive eater.

“They pushed each other really hard,” Cerza said. “Joey is so strong. He’s got great jaw strength. But Sonya’s so fast with the hand.”

Thomas, who is 5 feet tall and weighs 105 pounds, calls herself the Black Widow because she often defeats bigger male competitors — Chestnut is 6-foot-2 and weighs 230 pounds — in eating contests. She set the previous wings record in 2005, when she ate 174 in 12 minutes.

She also previously set eating records for oysters, hard-boiled eggs, cheesecake and jalapeno peppers. She won her first competitive eating event in 2003.

The sprightly 43-year-old said she owed Sunday’s triumph to her fancy finger work.

“Sometimes if I try to chew too much I slow down,” she said. “I used my hands more than the mouth.”

During the public contest, in front of thousands of people, she twirled the wings in her small fingers while quickly tearing off the meat with her teeth and lips.

Her cheeks were covered in a sheen of orange Buffalo sauce by the end.

But she said she was still hungry afterward, calling the wings “an appetizer.” About an hour later, she made a guest appearance in the Ridiculously Hot Buffalo Wing Eating Contest and ate 20 more. “The hottest wings!” she said. “I had to drink a lot of water.”

45th Street Pub vs. Ott’s vs. Whistlers Inn

BY Staff Writer : Randy Lovelace

Three Towns. Three Bars. Thirty-two Buffalo Wings.
45th Street Pub vs. Ott’s vs. Whistlers Inn

45th Street Pub

I sat down in my stool (Look, I have a ‘condition’). Okay, I sat down at the bar. The environment could be summed up as “hillbilly funk”. It was pretty slow that night. However, it took about five minutes before the bartender acknowledged my existence. I thought I was Patrick Swayze’s ghost…not the one in Ghost, his actual one... Anyway, I ordered my Sam Wheat, err…I mean Samuel Adams and ordered ten hot buffalo wings, well done, for $7.49 (It was Coors Light by the way). When I received my wings, I was given two bowls, one for the wings, and one for dispensing the bones. Overall, 45th Street Pub had the best presentation. However, the wings did not come out with celery so they did lose some points for that. I really don’t care for celery though. After biting in, the wing itself was a tad bit on the salty side, and I like salty food. The wings were not tossed well in the sauce, which had pooled at the bottom of my black bowl. After I doused the wings a little bit more in the sauce, the wings did a one-eighty and became a rather enjoyable experience. I looked forward to eating each subsequent wing and was very satisfied. The sauce was the best tasting and hottest out of all ‘hot’ wings across the board, but there wasn’t enough sauce in the bottom of the bowl to get the coating I desired. The wings were not that hot to my taste buds, but they may have been mildly discomforting to a two year old with open sores in his mouth. The wings were on the meatier side, not Flintstone dinosaur-sized, but meaty. The wings were also cooked perfectly.
Special: Fifty-cent wings on Sundays
Wing Guarantee: Order ten wings, and if you don’t love them after eating one, you get your money back.
Sauce - Hottest, tastiest
Presentation - Dispensing bowl, wet naps
Sauce - Could use more
Presentation - No celery brought out with order. Small amount of bleu cheese.
Regular Price - $.75/wing
45th Street Pub - Edgewater Park, 4303 S. Route 130, Edgewater Park, NJ 08010, 609-877-5610,

After walking up on top of the outside deck at Ott’s, I noticed there was a younger crowd. I told one of my younger brother’s friends that I was doing a wing review there and he said, “You came to the wrong place.” I tried to eat the wings with an open mind and without bias, but I can truly say that his remark was not completely unfounded. So to keep it standard, I ordered ten hot buffalo wings, well done, for $6.95. Right there, you can’t beat that price. Well you can, but shut up. The waitress was pretty cool and was cracking jokes almost immediately. What Ott’s did have going for it was at that point in time I was starving and could probably eat tree bark smeared in rat liver. Hungry now? As I said before, the waitress was nice, but she didn’t raise our umbrella at our table. Minus four. We also had to go scavenging for napkins. Plus five. What? Scavenging is fun. What is with that anyway? I’m counting the days until they start charging extra for napkins, and for each time you slap the waiter on the backside (yes, waiter). Ott’s had by far the best bleu cheese out of the three bars I visited. The outside area was very nice. It could have used a couple more TV’s though, especially when I was trying to watch the Phillies comeback, from ten miles away, with some dude smoking a cancer stick right in front of me. The wings were not as salty as 45th Street Pub’s which was a plus. The skin was a bit on the dry side. The wing itself tended to be a bit chewy, but the taste of the chicken was quite good actually. The sauce was not that hot, and it had a stronger Tabasco flavor. They did not bring out any wet naps, but Ott’s was the only bar whose wings came out with celery. Plus negative ten.
Price - $.58/wing
Presentation - Celery
Skin - dry
Sauce - Not enough sauce. Flavor was not there.

Whistlers Inn
When I walked in, I immediately worried if my uncle and I would even find a spot to sit down at. The place was packed. I guess it was trivia night and everyone had their phones out to show how awesome they are at Googling. When we first walked into one of the back rooms, I noticed it had a bit of a mildew smell to it that quickly dissipated. Maybe it was a funeral home? I ordered ten hot buffalo wings, well done, for $7.45. Then out came the celery, or wait, no it didn’t. The yellow Styrofoam plates the wings were served on looked like something a homeless shelter might use to divvy out their gruel. There were plenty of napkins. I noticed that their telephone number’s last four digits spell ribs so I will definitely have to give them a look next time. However, Whistlers Inn’s wing was by far the juiciest and the skin was very crispy and delightful. Where the wing itself fell short was the sauce. I was not in love with the taste of the sauce. The chicken wing by itself was incredible, but when paired with the sauce, I think the wing actually went down a few notches. If I don’t remember them for their wings, I will certainly remember them as the place I was when Eli Manning got his head cracked open by a Jet.
Sauce - plenty of it
Service - very fast
Presentation – Tons of napkins
Sauce - Didn’t scream buffalo sauce
Presentation - “I’ll have some...of the yella. And don't get cheap on me.”
Regular Price - $.75/wing

45th Street Pub wins. When it comes down to my personal preference, the sauce is what makes a wing. The wings looked the best and they tasted the best. I can always ask for extra bleu cheese and extra sauce. You can’t always ask for the wing to not taste like toasted cardboard. The chicken itself wasn’t bad. The other two bars probably just stood out due to the fact that 45th Street Pub’s sauce alone titillated my palette.

Francesca's Pizza, Pasta, and Grill

By staff writer : Owen Brennan
After arriving at my friends house, my normal conversation commenced, "Who has the best wings around here?" He thought about it for a minute and said, "Francesca's." I figured it was an Italian restuarant but didn't expect it to be a pizza place in a small strip mall. My hopes werent high since almost every pizza joint in Jersey has the exact same wings. All from a restuarant depot that has a ton of frozen wings packed in the freezer. Anytime i've ordered wings from a pizza place, they come with 1 sauce flavor, and a blob of blue cheese dressing. NOT Francesca's!! Several different kinds of sauce, generously applied to each and every wing. I had "BBQ mild" sauce on my order. We had them delivered since we were all having a good time drinking at the house. Delivery time was about 45 minutes, which isnt bad at all for it being a Saturday night. The delivery guy came, i met him at the door and when we exchanged money for wings, they were still piping hot. Those 20 wings lasted about 10 minuted in my possession, OUTSTANDING! By far the best wings i have ever had from a pizza place. They were actually so good that the first thing i thought about were those BBQ mild wings. My son and I took a ride out there the next day and ordered 50 more. He also approved. We ordered 50 this time so we could have left overs for the next day too. Definetly a good value also, 50 wings, $28. Not bad, I met with Gus, one of the owners, and he told me about the Garlic Parmasean sauce he makes. He hooked me up with 5 wings with that sauce. Very satisfying, definetly a different kind of sauce. Gus also told me that all of his sauces are made from scratch, and thats rare these days. I rate Francesca's a 9. I will definetly be returning.

Pic-a-lilli Inn aka "The Pic" - Shamong

Pic-a-lilli Inn aka "The Pic" - Shamong

by staff writer: Owen Brennan

Anyone in Ocean county, Burlington county, maybe even Mercer county that owns a motorcycle knows of this bar. I also believe that every fireman in the tri counties knows of this bar because their wings are so hot, they have their own fire truck. Maybe every biker, and fireman has been to this bar. It is definitely my favorite wing spot. Full sized wings, sweet, tangy, garlic, butter sauce, and the coldest beer just makes this bar, a treasure in the woods. My wife and I jumped on the Harley Davidson and just cruised around in the pine barons for about 2 hours and made it to, as what locals call it, "The Pic." When we walked in, we were greeted pleasantly by the female bartender that looked like she could easily beat up me, and the 2 other fellas that walked in with me, and she was only about 110 pounds. Very friendly though. She served up some Yeungling in a frosted glass, hooked us up with the controller thing to play "quizzo" while we waited for our delicious wings. The four of us ordered 50 wings. They were out surprisingly fast, served in a huge dog bowl that looked like it could have been utilized by a Great Dane. Wings overflowing, she sat the bowl right in front of me. The aroma entered my nose like a veteran coming home from the war. Borderline orgasmic!!! After the four of us went to town on the 50 wings, we had about 20 leftover. My wife wasn't too happy about this, since we were travelling on a Harley, but I had to get them to go. By far, the BEST WINGS EVER! Excellent service, excellent food, excellent "out in the pines" feeling. Very affordable also.

The Chicken or the Egg - lbi wings

Chicken or the Egg
aka the chegg

by staff writer Owen Brennan

While vacationing on Long Beach Island, NJ, I heard very many good things about the wings at the Chicken or the Egg. After a long night of story telling and and laughing and drinking a few too many beers, nothing sounded better than some chicken wings. We got there around 9:30 am and there was no line, about 3 tables in the whole restaurant were filled and every waiter/waitress looked like they also had a rough night. The decor resembled something out of a beach boys music video with a touch of Katy Perry, both I thoroughly enjoy.

I ordered mild wings. The waiter, "Rob," said they were the most popular. I enjoyed an omelette as well since it was breakfast time and it just seemed like the right thing to do at the time. After my traditional breakfast was complete, the mild, wet, wings appeared in front of me. They smelled so good, it voided the breakfast I had just consumed. After the first bite into the full sized chicken wing, I had come to the conclusion that, no doubt, the hype was right on. Wonderful wings. I only ordered six wings and I'm glad I did. They were huge. May have even been the biggest I have ever seen. The price was a little high, but isn't everything on LBI? I left absolutely satisfied. Also, something that a lot of people may not know about this spot it's open 24 hours a day, and it's BYOB, and if you're military, they support the troops and have military discounts. I rate the wings a 9 out of 10.
