I have to ask myself, is there such a thing as a professional chicken wing eater? Because Native New Yorker is billing its Battle of the Bone as "Arizona's only amateur wing eating contest." No professionals allowed! (ha)
Starting tonight at the Tempe restaurant, the contest will be held at a different Native New Yorker location each Wednesday; all the weekly winners will gnaw on even more wings for the grand finale, whose prize is still to-be-determined (how about cash, people?).
It's $15 to participate, and totally free to watch people gorp out. Here's the upcoming schedule: Tempe (March 11), Queen Creek (March 18), Val Vista (March 25), Bell Road (April 1), Glendale (April 8), Yuma (April 15), Foothills (April 22), and Signal Butte (April 29).
