Westchester Magazine & Empire City Casino served up the 3rd annual Wingfest to a crowd of hungry guests on Thursday, September 26th trackside at Empire City Casino. Over 2,000 attendees enjoyed wings from 20 local restaurants, ice cold beer, cocktails, food trucks, tasty treats and live music by FDR Drive. Contestants battled it out in a 2-minute wing-eating contest while others enjoyed live harness racing, & giveaways from our sponsors.
Our select panel of judges had the difficult task of sampling every wing in order to come up with their choices for Best Traditional Buffalo Wing, Best BBQ Wing, Most Flavorful Wing and Most Creative Wing.
Congratulations to all of this year's Wingfest winners! Smokehouse Tailgate Grill took 1st Place in the Crowd Favorite "Best Wing" category followed by Southern Table in 2nd Place and NY Firehouse Grill in 3rd.
The 2019 Wingfest was sponsored by fantastic companies whose support made this event possible.
