Friday (Bacon & Wings Day!)

‘Just Wingin’ It’ Competition presented by Tabasco // Bacon Competition presented by Irpino, Avin, and Hawkins


We partnered up with Tabasco to bring back our heated wings competition. Our teams will be cooking up thousands of crispy, spicy, and succulent wings as the best kickoff party this side of the Mississippi.

Plus, back by popular demand, the Friday night Bacon Competition returns!  Celebrate the almighty bacon strip by spending the day chowing down on OVER TWO TONS of the smokiest, fattiest, crispiest bacon dishes around.  In addition to BBQ samples, each team will be creating their own unique bacon dish that will be available for sale.
