I can only hope that SOMEone makes some Buffalo Wings. *drool* Have you heard the story behind Buffalo Wings? According to Wiki (and the owners of the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, New York), Buffalo Wings were invented at the Anchor Bar on October 3, 1964, by Teressa Belissimo, co-owner with her husband Frank. Upon the unannounced, late-night arrival of their son, Dominic, with several of his friends from college, Teressa needed a fast and easy snack to present to her hungry guests.
It was then that she came up with the idea of deep frying chicken wings (normally thrown away or reserved for stock) and tossing them in cayenne hot sauce. While the wings were deep frying, Teressa decided to serve left over celery sticks with blue cheese to her son and his friends to tide them over.
