Friday night I enjoyed wings, Buffalo chips and drinks at the best Buffalo Wild Wings in the world with my cousin Miss Boots and her friend Micki during a VIP party. And I am proud to say it is in downtown Detroit.
The much anticipated Buffalo Wild Wings opens to the public on Sunday and it is more than a restaurant. It is a huge investment in downtown Detroit and a sign that the area is coming back. And let me get this out of the way for you cynic’s. It will work. It will be a smashing success.
It is a three-story wings palace with more than 100 television sets, three bars, a private room for big parties and an outdoor patio. Employees greeted us with cheers and applause and welcomed us. I absolutely love the place and will make sure to stop by again. Soon there will be a Bagger Dave’s next door. And on that strip outside of Greek town you will have The Baltimore, The Well, Bagger Dave’s and Buffalo Wild Wings. That is a pretty solid block for the boys, the girls and families to hang out.
It is a destination spot for people in the city of Detroit and people that live downtown. It is open, airy and has hints of Detroit sports throughout. There is even a smaller version of one of those Comerica Park tigers. Too bad it cannot be open for tonight’s Lions game against the Atlanta Falcons. They are still ironing out kinks and the place and kitchen would be overwhelmed.
My only pet peeve is that during the evening the television showed college basketball games, and bad bowl games. They did not put the Pistons on until I alerted one of the managers. Good bars must always be aware of local teams.
Other than that it is great to see BW3 downtown.
By the way my favorite wings are the honey barbecue, sweet barbecue and mild with the Buffalo Chips.
