Wing Wednesday

"WingWednesday” is when an eating establishment serves chicken wings on Wednesday—usually at a reduced price. “Wild Wing Wednesday” has been cited in print since at least 1997. Pizza Hut (owner of Wing Stop) trademarked “Wing Wednesday” with a first use date of 2010.

“Wing Wednesday” is often preceded by “Taco Tuesday.”

Midway between the celebratory, special occasion restaurants and the down and dirty ones is the Baja California Grill. At first glance and at second, as well, this Mexican cantina looks like a funky bar scene spot for 20 somethings. Signs proclaim taco Tuesday (any taco at the bar $1), wild wing Wednesday and absolutely no alcoholic beverages permitted on the street.

Sub Sunday ~ Make your own Sub night. All the fixin’s and they make one for lunch the next day. Score.
Meatball Monday ~ Sweet & Sour Meatballs and Rice. No variation allowed.
Taco Tuesday ~ The meal that started it all.
Wing Wednesday ~ This just mostly means anything with chicken in it.
Take-Out Thursday~ I can’t cook all the time and it kind of has us stumped. What’s another “T” meal??
French Fries Friday – We have a kinda sorta mix of things but there is always french fries.
Thankfully, we get a break on Saturday, or we get the option anyways. But we usually have pizza.
