Tuesdays are Wing Night at the Rogues' Harbor Inn, Ithaca, NY

Tuesday are always wing night at the Rogues' Harbor Inn. Kerry is behind the bar pouring Rogues' Cayuga Cream Ale & 11 other draughts, Luke and Anthony are in the kitchen cooking for a crowd, and the whole place smells like hot wings. It's a wonderful thing.
We like to offer local foods and regional specialities, so wings are a must. We deep fry fresh wings to order by the pound and toss them in the classic Buffalo sauce as well as BBQ, golden BBQ and garlic. But, Buffalo style is the original and personally my favorite- we make our own Bleu cheese dressing, too.
According to Wikipedia, "A Buffalo wing, hot wing or wing is a chicken wing section (drumette or flat) that is traditionally fried unbreaded and then coated in sauce. Classic Buffalo-style chicken wing sauce is composed of a vinegar-based cayenne pepper hot sauce and butter.[1] Buffalo wings are traditionally served with celery sticks and blue cheese dressing.[2]
Buffalo wings were created in Buffalo, New York. The residents of Buffalo generally refer to them as "wings" or "chicken wings" rather than "Buffalo wings."[3]
2 Lbs of Wings & a pint from
 the Rogues' Harbor Brewing Co.
There are several versions of the legend inventing "wings," but all them involve the city of Buffalo, NY. during the 1960's and 1970's. It's hard to imagine life without wings. Beer without wings, a football game without wings, it just seems unnatural. So, we proudly serve the Upstate NY Buffalo favorite, wings, every night, and at a special price for 2 pounds on Tuesdays at the Rogues' Harbor Inn, Lansing, NY in the Heart of the Finger Lakes.
