Buffalo Wings

After the Albright-Knox Museum we were all famished and headed directly to the Anchor Bar at 1047 Main St in downtown Buffalo.
It was here that owner, Teresa Bellissimo first made the famous Buffalo Wings (chicken wings drenched in a hot sauce based on vinegar and cayenne pepper and served with celery sticks and blue cheese dip) in 1964 to feed the hungry college friends of her son.
The rest is legend. We had them with sides of potato wedges, a tomato and onion salad in balsamic vinegar and cole slaw. Soon we were pleasantly stuffed and ready to continue our tour.
John caught this cool picture of the fairy-tale maintenance shed in the parking lot as we returned to the car. Fun, eh?
