Veggie Wing Tour 2013

20 Aug

Ive been slacking on making this post…

Last weekend I put on ‘Wings, Dings, and Things,’ a soon to be annual veggie wing crawl via bikes.  The goal was to eat a bunch of wings that aren’t real wings, drink a bunch of beer along the way, and hang out with buds.  I think all the goals were accomplished.

Stop 1: Cedar Point Bar and Kitchen (2370 E. Norris St)

First up Cedar Point in Fishtown for food and drinks.  Their wings are on the crispier side and are topped with fried brussels sprouts which seams weird but are amazing.  Then again fried anything is great.  I did find out they have half price wings during their weekly weeday happy hour.

Stop 2: Blackbird (507 S 6th St) www.blackbirdpizzeria.com/

Next up was Blackbird, an all vegan pizza shop.  They make their seitan in house which is amazingly good about a year ago which are great, BUT they wont do a regular buffalo jawn which is a bit frustrating.  My new move is to get said wings dry, and then add the redhot that they have on the counter.  They were excellent.  We ate outside and enjoyed some Sly Fox Route 113 IPA.  I think a few people even threw down on the bball court.

Stop 3:  Pizza.Wings.Steaks (3233 Powelton Ave)

It is a newer establishment in University City.  I found out about this place not too long ago and added it to the route to span the city a bit more.  They do a homemade seitan, then bread it, and then fry so the wings are more like something you would get at Hooters.  I think this stop put most of us in the pain cave as we ordered way too many rounds.  They were good, just super filling.

Stop 4: Belgium Café (2047 Green St.)
Then to the Art Museum area for Belgium café, which has had their wings on the menu for a long time.  They use more of a BBQ sauce but they are still always good.  They also have an amazing beer list so we hung out in drank for a bit trying to get our hunger back up.

Stop 5:  The Abbaye (637 N. 3rd St)

The final stop of the tour was The Abbaye in Northern Liberties.  They have pretty good wings but their homemade seitan seem to change every time im there.  The price to portion ratio makes me rarely order them but they are good.  Most of us had our fill of wings so we mostly drank until late that night.
