When: Sat., Aug. 20 2011
Break out your bib: It's time to stuff your face with some of the messiest wings around. Sponsored by Pillars, the young professional division of the Lakewood Chamber of Commerce, Lakewood's annual Wing Crawl "started with just an idea over a beer and has improved each year," says Shawn Juris, event coordinator since 2005. Today's sixth-annual crawl will have you ambling along Detroit Avenue from 1 to 7 p.m., sampling four wings at each of the 11 participating bars. Start anywhere and proceed in any order, but it's up to you to decide whether Riverwood Café will hold onto its "best wings" title or a new bar will rule the roost. Tickets are $15 in advance or $20 at the door at Around the Corner Tavern — assuming they haven't sold out — and include free shuttle service, so you can safely chase those wings with brewskis. Check the website for ticket information and a list of participating locations. — Munnell 216-226-2900, pillarsoflakewood.org/wingcrawl.
