Pillars of Lakewood is again dominating downtown Lakewood with its 12th Annual Wing Crawl this Saturday, shuttling wing enthusiasts across the city to taste and judge the best wings.

Despite the event's sold out status, we're telling you about it because it's a ridiculously massive event that is absolutely going to impact any plans you may have made for Saturday night. Thought you were going to stop in for an innocent night of tequila and delicious Chick-arrones at El C's? Think again. It's Wing Crawl, baby.

For those who have never experienced or witnessed the Pillars Wing Crawl, it's like something out of a post-apocalyptic zombie film. Hordes of saucy-fingered wing lovers demolish 48 wings over the course of the crawl, and you can almost feel the sticky spices hanging in the air. It's delectable chaos and being unprepared for the invasion will put a huge damper on your evening.

These participants will be traveling (from east to west) across Lakewood to sample four wings (two of the location's Buffalo sauce entry and two of their own specialty flavor), stopping at Burgers 2 Beer, Deagan's, Merry Arts, Bobby O's, Plank Road Tavern, El Carnicero, Mid Town Booth's, Game On, Side Quest, Riverwood, Harry Buffalo and Around the Corner.

Best believe, alcohol will also be involved at these 12 locations. You do the math.

Once the sauce remnants of 48 wings have been carved out of their fingernail beds, participants must evaluate and cast a ballot on their favorite flavors, to determine the People’s Choice awards. Those results will be combined with the Judge’s awards to decide the "Best Wings in Lakewood."

Pillars of Lakewood is a non-profit organization structured around the professional, social and civic guiding pillars. Find out more about the event right here.
