What to expect: All the wings you can eat from some of the area's top purveyors, as well as live music (Cadillac Dave and the Chicago Redhots, Peaches, Rico McFarland), giveaways and more. WXRT's Lin Brehmer hosts and judges. A VIP ticket ($50) gets you all that plus a drink package and parking pass. Chicago Neighbors United is this year's beneficiary.
Why to go: The exciting/disgusting "Lord of the Wings" eating contest.
Additional information: This 21-plus event takes place at the Bailey Auditorium. Among the 30-plus restaurants are Mahoney's Pub & Grille, Timothy O'Toole's, Crossroads Eatery, Reggie's, High Dive, Chicago Joe's, Gators Wing Shack and District Bar.
