Are you looking for something to spice up your weekend and help a great cause? Then look no further because the Sactown Wings festival covers both and more! This Saturday, August 15, celebrate all things chicken wings (plus beer and fun, duh) all in the name of supporting Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sacramento.
I’ve compiled an essential “Do’s and Don’ts” list to ensure you’ll have a finger lickin’ good time!
DO: Dig in!
This festival is your chance to taste wings and beer from some of Sacramento’s best restaurants, including Blue Cue, Adamo’s, Chicago Fire, Yolo Brewing Company, Oak Park Brewing, and Speakeasy.
DON’T: Rub your eyes after eating
Remember they’re called hot wings for a reason! (I made the mistake myself once and I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemies).
DO: Bring your friends!
There are very few things better than wings and beer, but if you can share this experience with friends then you’ll have an even better time.
DON’T: Forget to wash your hands
Sure, you can just wipe off that delicious sauce on your shirt or slurp it straight off your fingers, but then you might look like a rabid Dexter fan.
DO: Be a game player
Xoso Sport & Social League will bring cornhole, beer pong (a.k.a. giant beer pong), and giant Jenga games to Cesar Chavez Plaza for your enjoyment. Challenge your friends for the title of Sactown Wings Champion!
DON’T: Eat something that’s too hot for you
Although all of the chicken wings will be delicious, some may have a little extra kick. (Turning fire engine red in the face is not a good look for most people…) But then again, there will be beer on hand to cool you off.
DO: Shake your tail feather
Spend some time listening to local surf/roots/rock band Arden Park Roots. This will be your chance to catch the band if you missed their closing-night gig at Concerts in the Park.
DO: Enter our Sac365 TixFix
