This Week At Sidecar: BBQ Wings And Boozy Beers

Wing Thing Sidecar

Tonight, “Wing Thing” is back at Sidecar. The Chef: Adan Trinidad of Jose and Sancho Pistolas. His wings: Black Garlic Mole Negro BBQ Wings with a Jasper Hill Blue Cheese Crema.

The wings will be offered until they sell out, usually in four or five days.

Also on tap at Sidecar: really strong beers. Join them tomorrow, Wednesday, July 15th for High Gravity Night. The lineup looks like it could do some serious damage.
