Chefs! Bring on your best wings.

Join Coastal Locals “Wing Fling” Food Competition for the month of September. All Southwest Florida restaurants, pubs, bars and food trucks are invited. We’re searching for traditional “buffalo wings” and unique “out-of-the-box” wings. Wings will be judged in these two separate categories.

A panel of 4 vetted food critics and bloggers, selected through Coastal Locals, will visit each participating establishment on a confirmed date throughout the month of September or October 2017. Your wings will be showcased to our panel and judged in your chosen category/categories: TRADITIONAL BUFFALO WINGS and/or OUT-OF-THE-BOX WINGS (unique as you want to make them). The criteria are taste, texture, presentation, and originality.

All winners and participating restaurants will be listed on the Coastal Locals’ web site, social media page, and included in a full article in Lee Herald and Naples Herald after the competition.

Call 239-240-8100 or email Shana Overhulser at The fee is only $36 to enter the competition but, Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association members enter for FREE.

Follow along on the Coastal Locals website or on the Facebook page and see all the participating restaurants playing for the win!
