What, dear reader, was the greatest week of your life?

Think back on that moment... and then THROW IT IN THE TRASH, because the Portland Mercury’s Portland Wing Week is about to make every other week you’ve ever experienced look like GARBAGE.

That’s right: Starting this Monday October 4 to Sunday October 10, the Portland Mercury’s Portland Wing Week returns—with 24 plates of custom-made chicken wings available at some of Portland’s favorite bars and restaurants! Even better? Each order of wings will cost you a mere $6! Yes, it will be amazing—because the Mercury and our pals at Jim Beam (also our generous sponsor), wouldn’t have it any other way!

Read on for a sampling of this year’s wings—and once you stop drooling, keep a few things in mind:

TIP, AND TIP WELL! Wing Week’s a ton of fun—and making it happen takes a ton of work! Make sure everyone behind Wing Week—everyone working on the floor, in the kitchen, and behind the bar—knows how much you appreciate them. Wing Week couldn’t happen without ’em!

WINGS... AND MORE! As subtly implied by the name “Portland Wing Week,” wings ARE the focus of Wing Week. BUT! Each Wing Week location also has an amazing array of sides and drinks (perhaps even a Jim Beam cocktail?) that are a perfect match for their wings! Don’t miss out!

HAVE FUN! This is Portland’s biggest Wing Week ever—and it’s almost guaranteed that despite everyone’s best efforts, there’ll be lines, sell-outs, and more. So if one location is too crowded? Just come back another day, and in the meantime, hit another Wing Week location!
