To really understand Lovejoy’s, you really need to understand its namesake, Elmer Lovejoy. He’s as important to Wyoming’s history as William Penn is to Pennsylvania’s. No he’s not, but he’s still really important -- he invented Wyoming’s first horseless carriage, followed by the first automatic garage door opener years later. His legacy lives on at Lovejoy’s Bar & Grill in Laramie, which also happens to be home to Wyoming’s best chicken wings. The two are unrelated. However, the Zingy Wings (described as “plump chicken drummies,” how could you not want that?), are dipped to order in the sauce of your choice and no matter which way you go, you’ll be as satisfied as the guy who invented the garage door opener -- that is to say, pretty damn satisfied.
