Any red blooded American schlub worth his salt should know, love and respect the chicken wing.
I know I do.
And today, Feb. 13, at 3 p.m., the bar Red Star in Greenpoint (at 37 Greenpoint Ave.) is having their Best Wings in Brooklyn competition.
And possibly the best part is wings are free, and there is no cover.
It absolutely kills me that I will not be able to make it. (Family obligations. And, besides, I'm dieting.) But I urge my fellow schlubs to down some wings and beer for your pal, Max.
BTW: The New Yorker's great Calvin Trillin has a terrific history of the buffalo wing here.
