"You may think Buffalo Wild Wings is just a nefarious organization that makes football players trip on sprinklers to force overtime so everyone can keep drinking beer, because all of their jobs stipulate that if you’re at a bar, and an overtime game is on, you’re not allowed to come back to work. But it’s more than that. For one, they also serve wings! Wild ones. For two, those wings are legitimately delicious. I started devotedly hammering them back in college, and I’ve been urging people to come with me to locations everywhere from Iowa to Colorado ever since. They all think I’m doing it ironically or am straight joking, but both of those assumptions are dirty and false. So do yourself a favor: go to Atlantic Station. Go up the escalator. Get the hot, plus some teriyaki or mango habanero. Get a huge beer. Get over the whole chain thing, and just get down." -- Ben Robinson, Editorial Director
