We Want Your Turkey (Donations!)

What’s the best way to score free food and help ensure everyone in the community gets to enjoy a Thanksgiving meal? Bring a frozen turkey donation to the Wing Shack! Once again, we are teaming up with The Food Bank for Larimer County and the Weld County Food Bank to act as a drop off point for anyone interested in donating a turkey for the holiday season. And we are very excited to announce that we will be working with Needs Inc (a Cheyenne based food bank) to collect turkey donations at our newest home off Stillwater Ave! Thanksgiving is one of our favorite holidays of the year – any holiday that brings people together to eat a tremendous amount of food is going to hold a dear place in our hearts. But we have a lot of work to do in our communities before we can truly be thankful. In Laramie,…

Wing Shack Cheyenne Grand Opening on May 17th!

The Wing Shack has gone interstate! Wing Shack Cheyenne (or Wing Shack Wyo as we lovingly refer to it), located at 1439 Stillwater Ave, is ready to open it’s doors on Wednesday May 17th! The community of Cheyenne has been so great to us already and we have too many people to thank for helping us continue to live our dream. So we thought the only appropriate response would be to pay it forward – throughout our entire opening weekend (Wednesday, May 17th through Sunday May 21st) we will be donating 10% of ALL sales to two critical non-profit’s in Cheyenne: Safehouse Services and Cheyenne Habitat for Humanity. We hope to continue to spread the #WingLove for a long time in Cheyenne. We’ll be cooking up some extra specials for our Grand Opening that you and your friends and family won’t want to miss!. Here is a look at everything we have…

Wing Shack Collects Over $6000 in Donations for the MDA

In yet another display of generosity by the community of Northern Colorado, the Wing Shack collected a total of $6,231 during the Muscular Dystrophy’s Association’s annual Shamrock fundraiser. The fundraiser, which the Wing Shack has participated in for the past 6 years, allows customers to purchase a green shamrock for $1 or a gold shamrock for $5 with all the proceeds from their purchase donated directly to the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA). The proceeds of the fundraiser are used to help send kids to MDA Summer Camp in Empire, CO. MDA Summer Camp provides a week-long opportunity where kids with limited muscle strength and mobility receive a life-changing experience in an environment without barriers. It’s a week where they’re free to enjoy adventures like horseback riding, swimming and fishing, develop lifelong friendships and build self-confidence and independence that are critical to living longer and growing stronger. The total cost to…

Wings for Turkeys for Thanksgiving

Before we can kick up our feet, loosen our belts, and start shoveling food in our faces in celebration of Thanksgiving, Northern Colorado has a lot to do as a community. Across both Larimer and Weld Counties, the food banks serving each county need over 7,300 turkeys to ensure that everyone in our community can enjoy this wonderful holiday. Thanksgiving is one of our favorite holidays of the year – and to know that so many people in our community are unable to enjoy this holiday is unacceptable to us. So, we are teaming up with the Weld County Food Bank as well as the Food Bank for Larimer County to help make sure that each organization meets our goals. All 5 of our Northern Colorado locations will serve as a drop off point for anyone interested in donating a turkey to their local Food Bank. We have cleared out…

The 2016 Wing Shack Wing Eating Contest

Who doesn’t want this on their mantle?! Here it is – time for the ultimate showdown in Northern Colorado competitive eating (it’s a pretty big scene…) The 8th Annual Wing Shack Wing Eating Contest (aka The Bear Hot Finals) is scheduled to go down on Saturday, October 29th. Twenty of Northern Colorado’s most dedicated wing lovers will face off in a race of speed and spice, with the victor taking home the Bear Hot Finals trophy and CA$H prizes! Because of the fanfare around this annual event, we have outgrown our West Greeley Wing Shack (which had hosted our last 4 competitions) and have partnered with our friends at High Hops Brewery to host this annual competition. And as it turns out, High Hops already had a Halloween celebration scheduled for that day, so it couldn’t have worked out better! In addition to the Wing Eating…

Border War: Wing Shack vs Double Dubs

The famed Border War. One of the most historic games in all of college football. Colorado State University vs. Wyoming. Two great programs going head to head on the gridiron for school pride, state pride, and the chance to hold a big bronze boot over your head in celebration. We have always had a passing interest in the game as Colorado natives – but now that we are finally in Fort Collins we knew we had to spice things up a bit. After all, these student athletes are going out there and putting it all on the line. The least we could do is show our support by throwing down in a competition of our sport of choice: fry cooking. We have quite a bit of respect for a wing joint out of Laramie called Double Dubs (formally Weitzel’s Wings) and, after quite a bit of trash talking, we both agreed…

Wing Shack Shake Up!

Memorial day is the unoffical start of the summer in our books and with the changing of the season, we wanted to let you know about a big change we are getting ready to make at all Wing Shack locations. If you have visited us at our Fort Collins store, you might have noticed a new menu – we are gearing up to roll out that menu at all of our locations throughout the month of June! It’s been 12 years since we opened our first location and through the years we have received invaluable feedback from our customers regarding all aspects of our restaurant. When hearing this feedback, our goal has always been to tweak and adapt to be better at what we do. Our new menu is the product of years of small changes, testing, and listening to feedback. Although the ‘meat’ of the menu has stayed relatively…
