Last night a full twenty restaurants, a half-dozen food trucks and vendors, and more than 2,000 guests descended on Empire City Casino to find out who makes the greatest wings in all of Westchester! There were photo ops, big-name local chefs, and even a wing-eating contest! Beer flowed, desserts put us over the top, and all-in-all it was a fabulous evening down by the raceway.
