Amen cowboy. We need fun stories sometimes too.

It does beat reading of rapes, murders and mayhem all the time.

The Anchor Bar likes to make that claim, but it's not true.

But it put them on the map. Now they are a tourist attraction. For what I hear they charge quite a bit for them wings…. But I guess in tourists wanna pay it, all the power to them…. Won’t find me there. Here’s my list of good local wings:

Roco’s Tacos in Blasdell
Marco’s Pizza & Subs in Arcade
Martinos Pizzeria in Gates
My back yard on the grill

I always order BBQ

Is Jeremiah's on Monroe Ave in Rochester outta bidness? Back in the day, they used to have the best wings, period: mild, medium, hot, nuclear, and Wise Guy. Locals would watch in amusement if some tourist ordered the Wise Guy variety, because they knew they were just used to start fires, and were NOT for eating.
