As someone who has an obsession with Burgers I totally understand Matt Reynolds’ devotion to finding the world’s Best Buffalo Chicken Wing. The Great Chicken Wing Hunt film plays out over the course of 3 weeks of driving more than 2600 miles & tasting 284 varieties of Wings.
He’s got a Slovakian film crew with him, his poor girlfriend who seems to be at her wit’s end and as for the judges, one of the greatest bunch of characters ever assembled. You gotta love Judge Al, he seems to love everything. He would have been perfect for grading my papers when I was in high school.
The best part is that you also get to meet Dom Zanghi. He is the last living person of the famed seven folks who got to try the 1st ever batch of Buffalo Chicken Wings at the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, New York in 1964.
My favorite quote of the film has to be by Maros, the sound guy – “You love it because it’s who you are”
On Friday April 4th (8PM) at Cobb Theater Downtown 16 in West Palm Beach there’s not only a screening of the Great Chicken Wing Hunt but also a tasting. Matt Reynolds will present the film and then answer questions afterwards. After the showing, right around the corner at Cobo Flats, you’ll be able to sample Wings coated in the ‘The World’s Best Buffalo Sauce’. The Best part? Both the screening and tasting are open to the public.
