The third annual King of the Wing hit The Grand Woods Lounge in downtown Grand Rapids on Wednesday night.

Everyone got to enjoy some amazing chicken wings courtesy of the competitors, who really took their wings to the next level!

Thanks to everyone who came out for the wing feast, and tried out the different flavors served up by Buffalo Wild Wings, Crooked Goose, The Grand Woods Lounge, RiverHouse Ada and Wing Doozy.

The competition was fierce this year, with an amazingly high quality to every wing being served!

Voting took place over three hours in two categories -- Judge's Choice and the People's Champion.

Congratulations to the winners:

  • Judge's Choice -- Crooked Goose
  • People's Champion -- Wing Doozy

This is two years in a row that Wing Doozy has taken home a first place award from King of the Wing.

However, the voting was really close in both categories! The runners-up were RiverHouse Ada for the judges and The Grand Woods Lounge for the people.

Who was your favorite?

By the way, the Down Syndrome Association of West Michigan was the event's beneficiary.

Thanks again to Hobart and Godwin for helping us bring you all the wings you can eat, and more!
