Take a big bite out of the weekend at the annual Super Fowl Cook-Off, a festive wing-off event at Varga Bar in Washington Square West.
The craft beer bar’s own wings — fall-off-the duck confit chicken wings with pomegranate molasses-bourbon-chili sauce — are stellar, truly among the best wings in the city.
This Sunday, January 19, amateur chefs are invited to whip up competitive varieties of wings in the hopes of besting Varga’s recipe come Super Bowl Sunday.
To qualify for the wing-off, participants must prepare two dozen chicken wings for this Sunday’s preliminary round, which is set to begin promptly at 7 p.m. The bar will provice chaffing dishes, but wings should be hot and ready to eat.
Varga Bar patrons will serve as the judges for the evening, so if you’re not interested in making wings, just come out to taste-test the entrants’ recipes and judge which wing will fly to the main event on Super Bowl Sunday.
For just $5, taste all the varieties of homemade wings and judge who gets to face owner and executive chef Evan Turney in the Fourth Annual Super Fowl competition on Sunday, February 2.
This Sunday, the winner is based solely on public vote. On Super Bowl Sunday, the winner will be subject to tastings by both expert judges and crowd
