@sjlberry: It sounds great! However, the wings would make me nervous, as a guest. I wouldnt want to get sauce on me, and my hands, and hte bone would pose a problem. As much as I love wings, i’d probably pass on them!

@Jer72: simple but yummy!
@kariface: I was kind of worried about them as well so she suggested the garlic parmesean wings so there won’t be as much sauce involved. However I do understand.
