Free wing offer attracts overnight crowd

An offer of free chicken wings for a year drew a crowd for the opening of Buffalo Wild Wings in Concord Township. The first 100 guests received ticket for the free food.

The store opened Monday, Sept. 17, at 10 a.m. following a ribbon cutting. But some of the people, eager for free wings, camped out overnight having been at the store since 11 a.m. on Sunday.

“Free food tastes better,” said Erin Denning of Glen Mills, one of the early arrivals.

Anthony Agabides, of West Chester, said getting the “best wings for a year” was worth the wait.
