Wing Review: Hat Trix Sports Bar

August 1, 2021By Patrick Moran

Hat Trix is located at 4923 Southwestern Blvd in Hamburg, merely a forty second drive from my physical office yet I’ve never actually been there before.  I decided to change that, ironically on National Chicken Wing Day.  A buddy of mine said she was going there and that they had a 50-cent wing special going … Read More

Wing Review: Mulberry Italian Ristorante

July 17, 2021By Patrick Moran

Breaking news: Mulberry Italian Ristorante has chicken wings.  OK, that’s not really breaking news but I’d bet a vast majority out there didn’t know they served wings. I certainly didn’t and for good reason—Mulberry’s known as one of if not the premier Italian restaurants in all of Western New York, not typically the type of … Read More

Wing Review: Imperial Pizza

July 15, 2021By Patrick Moran

Imperial Pizza is the gospel when it comes to pizza and wings for most people in South Buffalo.  Seriously, it’s nearly sacrilegious to speak negatively of it in that part of town and trust me, I’d know. I’m not a fan of their pizza. I’ve considered it quite bland and comparatively overpriced. I’ve gotten into … Read More

Chicken Wing Review: Kettles

July 10, 2021By Patrick Moran

There’s very few bars I’ve driven past more times without trying their wings than Kettles.  Located on Abbott Road in Orchard Park just a stone’s throw from Highmark Stadium, I routinely go with proven winners O’Neill’s or the Big Tree Inn when in the area and craving wings.  I finally decided to give Kettles a … Read More

Chicken Wing Review: Bada Bing

July 9, 2021By Patrick Moran

After five long years I’m back in my hometown of Buffalo, only this time not a visitor but back for good.  That means a great deal to me in many ways, and one of course is more access to wing spots than ever before. My first wing trip back me to Bada Bing on Chippewa … Read More

Winter/Spring 2021 Chicken Wing Power Rankings (1-69) & Tiers

May 10, 2021By Patrick Moran

Covid has really sucked. Obviously that statement holds true in more ways than be counted but for the purpose of this post I’m referring specifically to chicken wings.  Being a life-long Buffalonian currently (emphasis on that word “currently) residing in Florida, Covid severely hampered my ability to get back home to Western New York regularly … Read More

Chicken Wing Review/QB Comparison: The Yelling Goat

April 19, 2021By Patrick Moran

The Yelling Goat is located on Central Avenue in Lancaster and has been around for—actually I have no idea.  It feels like it’s been around for quite a while and is quite comfortable inside.  I went with a few friends who got things other than wings (blasphemy) including chicken fingers, calzones and a thin crust … Read More

Chicken Wing Review/QB Comparison: Prohibition 2020

January 20, 2021By Patrick Moran

Prohibition 2020 is located in Orchard Park, almost directly next door to Highmark Stadium (I still call it the Ralph but I digress).  It was former called Biergarten and Tailgaters and who knows before that. I’ve had wings there under previous regimes and quite frankly thought they kinda sucked. Will Prohibition suffer the same fate? … Read More

WWE Raw25 Thoughts: Feeling Underwhelmed

January 23, 2018By Patrick Moran

Typically the morning after Raw I post a column with five takeaways from the night before.   Of course, last night wasn’t a typical Raw and I’m not one to sell my legions of fans short.   Many of the legends that have made Raw the longest-running episodic television show in history were on hand last night … Read More
