National & World News

If you are trying to figure out what to have for dinner tonight, here’s an idea: today is National Chicken Wing Day.

The idea of eating chicken wings was hatched in 1964 at the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, New York.

Owner Teressa Bellissimo cooked them up for her son and his friends for a midnight snack one night.

The city of Buffalo celebrated its first National Chicken Wing Day in 1977.
