Join us Labor Day Sunday for Live Music, Cold Beverages, and the BEST Wings in the South! 100% of the proceeds go to local Charities!! The Big Kahuna Wing Festival celebrates the creation of the “Buffalo Wing” which became a national food icon. Invented in 1964 at the Anchor Bar by Teresa Bellisimo, it’s America’s #1 appetizer.
