The Annual Wing Walk Returns to Downtown White Plains Saturday, April 20th Noon – 5:00 PM


     Your taste buds won’t be disappointed! The White Plains BID, with the support of the City of White Plains, is thrilled to present the Fifth Annual Downtown White Plains Wing Walk.

Participating restaurants include Alex Lounge Bar & Grill, Archie Grand, Asopao Cuisine, The Brazen Fox, Buffalo Wild Wings, Cantina Taco & Tequila Bar, Delicias del Jireh, Freebird Kitchen and Bar, Hudson Grille, Lazy Boy Saloon, Lilly’s, Mario’s Pizza, The Melting Pot, Ron Blacks Beer Hall, Sundance Kitchen & Cantina, Tepe’s Kitchen, TVB by Pax Romana and Wolf & Warrior Brewing Company.

Participants with a Wing Walk bracelet are permitted to try two wings from every establishment in 2.5 hour rounds, and to vote for their favorite via a public ballot. Bracelet holders will also receive a voucher for six additional mouthwatering wings at a Wing Walk participant restaurant of their choice. The vouchers can be redeemed in the six days after the event, between April 21 and April 26. Flavors beyond the tried and true buffalo sauce include: Spicy Basil, Tamarind Picante, Sweet and Sour Bourbon, Thai Peanut and Korean BBQ. Over 16,000 wings are expected to be consumed.

New This Year: More Entertainment & Fresh Flavors

To add some festive “feathers” to the event, the event’s coordinator, the Downtown White Plains Business Improvement District, has added on-site entertainment as part of this moveable feathered feast. Live acoustic music by guitarist Gerald Edward and The Slide Stops will be positioned throughout the route downtown, delighting passersby. Chuck the Chicken (Wing Walk’s mascot) will be present for selfie snaps with all wing lovers. Additionally, chicken cornhole, life-sized connect four and several other “backyard” games will be present on street corners to add some “zest to the nest” and engage Wing Walkers in a day of play!

“Our restaurants come out in full force for Wing Walk every year,” said Jennifer Furioli, Executive Director of the downtown business support nonprofit. It’s a great event that builds community and moves people door to door to some of our most dynamic restaurants in town. And, it’s fun! Whether you come with a date, a group of friends, or with your young family, we think you’re going to love this event and get a great taste of all downtown has to offer.”

Another Level of Competition:

Restaurants wishing to win the battle of the wings will have TWO chances this year to take home a title.

The standard “public’s choice” voting will remain, via ballot, as it has in the past, where after sampling two flavors of wings at each restaurant, diners can cast a vote for their favorite.

In addition, this year a “VIP Judges Panel”, comprised of seasoned culinary professionals and wing lovers, will also select their own champion via group deliberation and debate. The members of the VIP judges panel include Chef Ron Gallo (Executive Chef of Jean George’s Happy Monkey in Greenwich), Anthony Goncalves, (Executive Chef of Kanopi and a James Beard Finalist for Best NY State Chef), Phil McGrath (Chair, Culinary Arts and Hospitality Management-SUNY Westchester), Westchester Community College culinary student Emily Wada, Mayor Thomas Roach, and Jason Bertolini of Dana Distributors.

Past Wing Walk winners include Lazy Boy Saloon (2019), Alex Lounge (2021), Delicias Del Jireh (2022), and Alex Lounge (2023). Will reigning champ Alex Lounge defend their title with their signature Cilantro lime wings or might new entrant Asopao Cuisine surprise everyone with a takeover?
