Popular Eating Event Breaks New Record

Wing Bowl pleases fans for its 26th year

 

The 94WIP Wing Bowl took place Friday, Feb 2 at the Wells Fargo Center. A sold-out crowd watched as Molly Schuyler won this year’s contest with a record breaking 501 wings in 30 minutes. The wings were supplied by P.J. Whelihan’s, whose owner Bob Platzer, wagered and won a bet with Nick Varano of Boston-based steakhouse Strip by Strega. Varano was obliged to send down enough Boston cream pies and lobster rolls for 20 people.
