Food-themed days are threatening to become the culinary equivalent of the boy who cried wolf: so many manufactured eating occasions, only so much stomach space. Still, no matter how frequently they seem to pop up, there's one thing that always grabs attention. Boy oh boy do we all love freebies.
Perhaps that's why Brisbane's pop culture pun-loving poultry slingers are celebrating International Wings Day by giving the people what they love. Yes, Lord of the Wings is handing out free chook pieces once again. On Sunday, July 29 between midday and 3pm, the chain's Carindale and Indooroopilly stores will be serving up free three-packs of traditional wings with buffalo sauce, with one pack available per person.
The free wings are available in store — and anyone rushing along to get theirs will also live entertainment turning the place into a party. Last year, apparently 27,500 wings were served, so it's bound to be popular.
