National Chicken Wing Day was proclaimed on July 29, 1977 by the Mayor of Buffalo, New York, Stan Makowski. As the story goes, Teressa Bellissimo (co-owner of the Anchor Bar) created chicken wings when trying to come up with a quick and easy late-night snack for her son and his college pals in 1964. At the time, chicken wings were typically reserved for soup stock, but Teressa tossed them in butter and hot sauce before frying them up… an instant hit! After catching on locally and popping up to rave reviews in other local eateries beyond the Anchor Bar, the Mayor had to acknowledge the tasty morsels, declaring “thousands of pounds of chicken wings are consumed by Buffalonians in restaurants and taverns throughout the city each week”… and National Chicken Wing Day was born.
