Party like it's H1N1

Foods that are finger-lickin' good might not be a first choice these H1N1 days, but the ever-popular wing strip on Spring Garden Road shows no sign of slowing its pace.

Foods that are finger-lickin' good might not be a first choice these H1N1 days, but the ever-popular wing strip on Spring Garden Road shows no sign of slowing its pace. Bring your friends (and hand sanitizer) to one of these joints for cheap eats.

Bubba Ray's Sports Bar

Bubba Ray's is the king of wings when it comes to sauces: the bar has more than 50, including apple butter and mango chipotle, with hotness that goes up the scale to armageddon. Get them Thursday nights (5-10pm) and Sundays (12-4pm) for 40 cents.

Onyx

Manager Kyle Higgins says the Onyx's chicken chops---wings with the small bone removed, with the meat balled up on one end to look like a lollipop---have stayed on the menu through five years of changes due to popularity. They're half price on Wednesdays.

Oasis Pub & Eatery

This basement bar is still offering what we think are the cheapest wings in town (if you know cheaper, let us know)---30-cent wings, which were a quarter each until a month ago. Wing nights are Thursdays 4:30pm-12am and Saturdays from 2-9pm.

5675 Spring Garden Road, 422-2227

Your Father's Moustache

Nobody's scared of finger food at the Moustache, as wing night is still one of the restaurant's busiest during the week. The night of choice for wings is still Thursdays, from 5pm to close, and wings are now 40 cents each.
