It’s National Chicken Wing Day


(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.
