The inaugural Nina’s High School Football Wing Bite-Eating Contest was held recently at the eatery’s Blakely location, 310 Main St.
Eight schools participated, with four players from each team. Each team was given a half-tray of wing bites ( 8 pounds of wing bites smothered in mild sauce; that’s 64 pounds of chicken bites). In less than 40 mins, the winner was chosen: the team from Lakeland, sponsored by The Backyard Ale House. The team won $1,000 and many prizes.
The team from Abington Heights placed second; the team from Valley View placed third. Other teams competing were Carbondale Area, North Pocono, Scranton Prep, Dunmore and Mid Valley.
