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 National Chicken Wing Day by giving the people what they love. Yes, Lord of the Wings is handing out free chook pieces. On 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 both in store and via delivery, though the latter requires you to order something else as well. Anyone rushing along to get theirs in person will also find jugglers and stilt walkers turning the place into a party, though we're assuming no one will be throwing chicken into the air.
Lord of the Wings' National Chicken Wing Day celebrations take place from midday to 3pm on July 29. For more information, visit their website.
