Wing Wars: Mackey’s Pub vs. the Black Squirrel

Who has the best wings in Washington? You tell us.

The wing’s the thing at Mackey’s and the Black Squirrel, but who fries ’em up better?

Welcome to round one of Wing Wars! We selected 32 local chicken wing destinations and randomly drew numbers to create this March Madness–style bracket. Every day on the Best Bites Blog, we’ll ask you to vote for which bars and restaurants should move on to the sweet 16. We’ll be posting two bouts a day during round one, so check back for updates. Voting will close at midnight of the day the posts are published.

Good morning, wing fans. Yesterday you voted to send the Ugly Mug and Wingo’s into round two. First up today it’s Mackey’s Pub vs. the Black Squirrel. Will the K Street crowd propel their favorite after-work drinks and snacks destination into the sweet 16, or will the loyal fans of the Black Squirrel’s twice-cooked wings show their support?

Vote now and check back later to choose who will win today’s second bout.
