Best Wings in Broooklyn LogoCome have a wing and cast your vote for your fav Bushwick, BK eatery (US!) on Saturday, February 25th from 2 to 7:30pm. Life Cafe 983 will be returning to prove that we are still making THE BEST WINGS IN BROOKLYN in 2012.   Held annually at the Brooklyn Red Star in Greenpoint, this competition is getting hotter every year like our 2011 Brutal Wings winner.  Over 2000 wing lovers are expected to make an appearance this year where a dozen or more of the best wing purveyors will be handing out thousands of pounds of free wings all afternoon long.  Be sure to show up early because the waits are expected to be long, but the rewards are well worth it.  You get to eat our wings after all.

Victory From the left is our own Life Cafe 983 Winger, Matthew, Ryan Hohman, “The Ultimate Wingman”, Kathy Life and Andy Mills, the official Life Cafe 983 Beer Dude. Ryan Hohman claims he ate 2,011 chicken wings in 2011 and lost 14 pounds. He voted for our wings at the Red Star last February.

The estimated 1500 to 2000 attendees will vote for their personal favorites via the People’s Choice ballot, which will be tallied at the end of the day while the judges weigh their consensus picks.

Borough President Marty Markowitz and the event’s beneficiary,Teddy Atlas, will make the final presentations early evening around7pm.

Pulling in our Winger, Matthew Kopel, for the second year in a row, he’ll be joining Andy Mills, 983’s Official Beer Dude and the BK hood’s favorite bar aficionado, slinging our wings (as well as some smiles) to the masses for us again this year.


Here’s some of the wing relishers from last year.  I’d say they are a little more than content.

This event is also a fund raiser on behalf of the Theodore A Atlas Foundation, to which we have donated.
