Put away your Tony Shalhoub and Tim Daly cosplay gear.  When we said it's Wings Day, that's not even close to what we meant. Today, July 29 is National Chicken Wing Day.

To celebrate a day dedicated hot chicken arms, restaurants -- both local and national -- are serving up deals on wings to keep you full and satisfied and, later, sleepy. Since we're not talking about an ice cream cone or a donut, you won't find a totally free meal many places, but you will find lots of offers where you buy something and wind up with a free pile of wings on the side. Offers like that can be found at Wingstop, Davanni's, TGI Fridays, and many other restaurants. 

To save you the trouble of calling all your favorites, we've compiled the best National Chicken Wing Day deals below. Bon appetit.
