World’s Greatest Chicken Wing Found during Sarasota Film Festival

Vinegar-based hot sauce, butter and a deep-fried, non-breaded wing are the elements of my ideal wing. When it comes to being the world’s greatest Buffalo chicken wing, can it be that simple?

2010 Sarasota Film Festival, April 9 – 18

Last year I had the pleasure of being part of a Twitterering team live Tweeting during the Sarasota Film Festival and think I did a pretty good job in creating buzz.
