Friday night for high school, Saturday afternoon for college and Sunday for the pros... it's tough to beat a fall football party & game.

When you are throwing a tailgate party you don't want a lot of fussing around preparing food.  Your guests are looking for something easy to manage in a walking around situation as opposed to a sit-down meal.  Finger food is your best option.  You can't go wrong with burgers and brats but another all-time favorite for football games are chicken wings.

Chicken wings - a finger-food favorite

According to the National Chicken Council, cooking wings in a peppery hot sauce was born in 1964 at the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, New York, when co-owner Teressa Bellissimo cooked leftover wings in hot sauce as a late-night snack for her son and his friends. The guys liked them so much that the Bellissimos put them on the menu the next day. Served with celery slices and bleu cheese sauce, “Buffalo Wings” were an instant hit.

Chicken wings meet football... what great partners.

The link between chicken wings and football in the US is another interesting story.  In the last half of the 21st Century it was most common to sell chickens either whole or cut up but with all the parts in one package.  However, beginning in the 80s U.S. consumers started preferring boneless-skinless breast meat, and wings became an inexpensive byproduct for chicken producers. Restaurants and bars realized they could charge low prices for the relatively inexpensive protein, and due to the spicy/salty nature of the sauce, they discovered that beer sales would go through the roof when customers ate wings.

Around this same time, a new trend in the restaurant industry was becoming very popular, sports bars.  With multiple TVs and satellite dishes, the most popular sporting event to watch with friends in bars was football. Wings are easily shareable and affordable, a great “group food” to eat with other people, and what's better for pairing with a cold bottle of beer?
