Briefs: Winging It in Buffalo


reports, and wire, Tribune-Review/Pittsburgh Tribune-Review


If you're looking for the place where buffalo wings started, you'll naturally want to head to Buffalo, N.Y.

And if you want to join thousands of other wing fans in celebration of the deep-fried, saucy favorite, plan your trip for Labor Day weekend, when the city hosts the National Buffalo Wing Festival, this year on Sept. 5 and 6.

Last year's wing fest drew more than 78,000 people for events that include professional eating contests and sauce competitions. Wings are offered in an endless variety of flavors with sauces ranging from mild to suicidal, and there's even an event in which contestants bob for wings in a pool of blue cheese.

Bottles of Frank's RedHot, billed as the "Official Wing Sauce of the National Buffalo Wing Festival," will be given away from a booth at the festival. The company's celebrity chef and spokesman, Kevin Roberts, will be appearing in a celebrity chef challenge with the festival founder, Drew Cerza. Roberts will also take part in cooking demonstrations featuring RedHot recipes.

Buffalo's Anchor Bar and its founders, Frank and Teressa Bellissimo, created Buffalo wings in 1964. Since then, wings have gone from a tavern snack to a mainstream restaurant menu item, with entire food chains built around their sale.

Twanging it

Bluegrass faithful will be making an annual pilgrimage to Jerusalem Ridge at Rosine, Ky. near Owensboro the first weekend in October.

From Oct. 1 through 4, the home place of the "Father of Bluegrass," Bill Monroe, will resound with music by some of the genre's leading artists. Visitors can tour the Monroe family's carefully restored 1918 home filled with mementos from Monroe's illustrious 70-year music career.
