Many years ago, I worked down the road from a place called George's and every week my coworkers and I would live for the half price wing day. It was out of control how much I loved their original dry wings spicy with a side of the super vinegary yummy hot sauce. Like I loved this place so much, my friends bought me tshirts and other George's Pub swag. I live in the city so obviously wings are available on every corner, but I need this specific dry rub slice of heaven in my life right now so I drive an hour out of my way to celebrate this gift to the world. I get there and am happy to see that it's still as divey as always, but the menu has exploded. I tried to describe to my server what it was I was on a mission to find. He was zero help. You could tell that he was obviously annoyed to even be bothered. He doesn't offer to bring me a sample of sauce or anything. He drops the food, stops by once and I say oh, it's not the one I was going for, but it's good. The server just turns around and walks away. He comes back once to drop the check. I was so disappointed, not only because it wasn't the one I was trying for, but it wasn't good at all. The wings were greasy and had zero flavor except for the cayenne dusted over the top. You can tell it was just shaken over the top, versus, coated in seasoning. I'll never make that trip again; which is just sad. Those were the best wings ever and now I'm on a mission to find the next reigning champion.
