October 3: Happy Birthday to the Buffalo Wing!

Buffalo Wings

This is an especially Geeky day, for not only in 1955 was Captain Kangaroo and the Mickey Mouse Club debuting on CBS and ABC, but in 1964 the first Buffalo Wings were made in Buffalo, New York. Hence the name – Buffalo wings.

There are four different versions of how they came to be. Wikipedia accredits Teressa Bellissimo and the Anchor Bar in Buffalo for the invention.

You can serve them up with celery (no carrots), and Blue Cheese dressing (Apparently the folks in Buffalo take offense to using Ranch dressing).

I think we all need to take an evening off and enjoy a beer and wings with your friends.
