Another one bites the dust.
The beloved Wingapalooza is yet another victim in the long line of canceled events this year. But fear not my wing-loving friend.
The powers behind Wingapalooza have made a way for you to still enjoy cheap wings from all over the Springfield area in the form of Wingapalooza Crawl 2020!
Wingapalooza has been around for twenty glorious meat filled years.
So it’s a golden birthday? 20-years old in 2020?!?!?
Here’s everything you need to know about Wingapalooza and the 2020 Wingapalooza Crawl.
Let’s dive in.
What is Wingapalooza?
Just in case you’ve been living under a chickenless rock the past few decades, let me catch you up to speed.
The Wingapalooza event is held every year by Springfield Sertoma as a way to raise money for the youngins in this area.
One magical moment each year, Sertoma gathers together numerous wing servin restaurants to dole out said wings together in a single arena.
Here in this Eden, you can spend hours stuffing your face with poultry goodness all for just one ticket admission fee.
Every year, bone-in and boneless enthusiasts alike flock to this blessed event and stand shoulder to shoulder in sauced up bliss while raising money for Boys and Girls Clubs of Springfield and other local youth organizations.
Unfortunately, the whole “shoulder to shoulder” thing is kinda frowned upon in our current environment….
That’s where Winga Crawl 2020 comes in to save the day!
WingaPalooza Crawl 2020
In the WingaPalooza Crawl 2020 you can still raise money for local kids, enjoy a taste of the wingness Springfield area has to offer, AND do so while avoiding touching other people!
The first thing you must do is:
- Obtain the Golden Ticket
Which in this case is just a cool Wingapalooza booklet.
Either get yourself to Hy-Vee or a participating Rapid Robert’s to buy the book.
Ooooor, if you really want to win the gold star of social distancing, you can buy the booklet, golden ticket here and they will mail your booklet to you!
What do you do next?
Once you have the booklet in hand you are free to roam the streets in search of your mouth’s next wing adventure.
The participating restaurants will be doling out wings for this event from now until December 31st, 2020.
The booklet will contain a voucher that you give to a designated restaurant and in return they hand over delicious wings.
There’s a voucher for each of the EIGHTEEN participating restaurants and word on the street (or on Wingapalooza’s Facebook page) is that you’ll get four wings at each restaurant.
If I’m doing my math correctly, that means you get SEVENTY-TWO wings for the price of the Winga booklet!!!
I know it’s not quite the same as being amongst fellow wing lovers, prancing from booth to booth, with piles of drums and flats to devour in one glorious day.
But hey, at least it’s something.
And I think it’s just enough to get us by until we all joyously reunite in the same room for Wingapalooza 2021.
