Recipe by Picante
My husband and I went to Niagara Falls a couple of years ago. We decided that since we were flying into Buffalo we musn't pass up a chance to eat at Anchor Bar where hot wings were invented. After a full day of flying with our daughter, who was about 7 months old we were looking forward to a nice plate of hot wings and a couple of beers. We drove in the rain down dark streets and finally came to the infamous Home of the Original Hot Wings. The service, beer, wings, and fries were great. I decided to try a "West Coast" version of the wings. I named them after the town in which I live. I hope you enjoy!
