Just have to put my thirty nine cents worth in.
Wing nights anywhere have always run on the idea that you'll still spend a decent amount of money or else why would they even bother?
No different than a grocery store selling 99cents a pound turkey on holidays, they really expect you'll shell out for the fixin's at the same time.
Rockford has a really good wing night, we go often and it's usually packed. Sorry, but I don't know if you three locals are going to put much of a dent in that.
