Hard Times Cafe Brings Second Annual Wing Off

Hard Times Cafe Brings Second Annual Wing Off

Hard Times Cafe and 106.7 The Fan are proud to bring the 2011 Wing Bowl Championship to the area. There will be a total of 7 wing eating competition “Wing Offs.”

Hard Times Cafe General Manager, John Pecyncki, said this is the second year in a row for Hard Times to host this competition. All of the wings are Texas Hot Wings favor and the goal is to see who can eat the most wings in an allotted time. There are 2 rounds in the competition. The first round is to see who can eat the most wings in 10 minutes and then the top wing eaters advance to the “Wing Off” for another 4 minutes of wing eating.

“I guess they have to be used to eating large amounts of food,” said Pecyncki who thinks that people definitely practice before the competition. The winner of last year’s competition was a student from University of Maryland and did dry runs at local wing eateries.
