Wing Wars: Stoney’s vs. Capitol Lounge

Who has the best wings in Washington? You decide.

Wings soak up a night’s booze at Stoney’s, but the Cap Hill crowd loves the Capitol Lounge. It’s anybody’s game.

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.

We’re in the home stretch of Wing Wars round one, and currently there are three open polls. Be sure to help break the tie between Dogfish Head Alehouse and J.Bell’s Famous Wings before 5 PM today. Meanwhile, 14th Street hotspot Churchkey is taking on Wing Supreme in Tacoma. Finally, it’s time to decide whether the wings at Stoney’s or those at Capitol Lounge should make it to round two. Drinky crowds flock to both for Buffalo-sauced snacks, but only one can move forward in our bracket. Vote now, and check back tomorrow for the results.
