(CNN) Bust out the celery and blue cheese, it’s National Chicken Wing Day.
Chicken wings, or more specifically Buffalo wings, became a thing in 1964 at the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, New York.
Owner Teressa Bellissimo cooked them up for her son and his friends for a midnight snack and they were an instant hit.
The City of Buffalo celebrated its first National Chicken Wing Day in 1977.
Molly Schuylr set a record by eating 501 wings in a half hour at the 2018 “Wing Bowl”.
That beat her previous record, set three years earlier of 444 wings.
