Monday morning I received official notice that I will be a judge for Red Star’s 2nd Annual Best Wings In Brooklyn Competition. All of the info about the event is laid out in the press release below. Rumor has it Jay-Z will make an appearance to support Buffalo Boss, the new Downtown Brooklyn chicken wing restaurant that he recently invested in.
Check out the full press release after the jump.
On Saturday, February 12th at 2:00 pm, Greenpoint’s RED STAR will once again host the 2nd Annual “BEST WINGS IN BROOKLYN COMPETITION” where twenty of the borough’s best purveyors will “throw their wing into the ring” in pursuit of cash prizes, borough bragging rights, and a whole hell of a lot of attention.
This event is FREE to the public, with FREE WINGS all afternoon, beginning at 2:00 pm. After an entire afternoon of sampling, Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz will crown the winners that evening. Last year’s defending champs, SUPER WINGS NY of Crown Heights, got challenged to a Food Network “THROWDOWN!” by Bobby Flay – and they beat him too! Perennial neighborhood favorite BONNIE’S GRILL from Park Slope joins the fray for the first time, as does new kid on the block BUFFALO BOSS, from Downtown Brooklyn, whose prime backer is the one and only Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter, who is rumored to be attending in order to help “drum” up support for the cause.
A portion of the proceeds from the 2nd Annual “BEST WINGS IN BROOKLYN COMPETITION” will be donated to THE FOOD BANK FOR NEW YORK CITY, which provides 400,000 free meals a day for New Yorkers in need.
