I always order buffalo wings and a basket of fries at the Union Brewhouse. Their menu is limited and not especially well-executed -- one goes to the U-Brew for beers on the patio, not for the food. But they do wings better than most places, and you get a generous plate of 8. I eat 4 and bring the other 4 home for lunch the next day.

Last night they derailed me entirely by running out of wings. "We have chicken fingers, and turkey wings," the server suggested.

I know better than that: Chickens don't have fingers.

But wait. Eat a turkey's wings? That sounds...nasty. I scanned the menu in futility for a minute before deciding "What the heck. I'm going to roll the dice on the turkey wings."

Friends, they were delicious. Meatier than chicken wings, each one the size of a small drumstick, and completely devoid of the fat and gristle and other little nasty bits that afflict chicken wings. I am a convert. I hope these things catch on.

You've certainly convinced me to try them the next time I see them on a menu and am in a wings mood.

Sounds like something I would also try - thanks for the writeup. And for those younger members of our boards - the joke comes from this clip:

Yes they were. The U-Brew offers wings with various sauces (like teriyaki), but I'm a purist.
