Munich Brauhaus, Bavarian Bier Café and The Bavarian Aim for a Record Breaking Wing Week…
Australia’s favourite Bavarian restaurants across Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane are dialing up the wing activity this National Chicken Wing Day on Saturday, 29 July, by dedicating a whole week to these saucy little misfits, which have stolen hearts and appetites across the country.
Drum roll please for Wing Week 2017: seven days of delightful chicken wing action from Monday, 24 July to Sunday, 30 July.
The Bavarian venues are aiming for a record breaking wing week this year, as they look to serve 100,000 wings in one single hour. The challenge will take place during ‘flappy hour’ on Friday 28 July, between 5pm and 6pm, when wings will cost just 10 cents each.
The Bavarian venues were booked out on National Chicken Wing Day 2016, when they served a total of 50,000 10-cent wings in a single hour.
On Saturday 29 July the gloves will come off, and the sticky fingers will come out, with wing eating competitions across Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. The fastest contestant to consume 20 chicken wings, clean to the bone, at each participating restaurant* will win $250.
Diners can tickle their taste buds from Monday to Friday with three limited-edition sauces available: mango habanero, chipotle barbecue and Asian caramel.
Every lunch time (11am-3pm) customers can dive into a kilo of wings and a 300ml beer for $20 as they make the most of the week-long homage to the cheeky chicken wing.
*Note: Bavarian Bier Café York Street, Entertainment Quarter and Broadbeach, and The Bavarian at World Square are not participating in the wing eating competition.
