Last year on July 16, 2018, Buffalo celebrated the first ever National Blue Cheese Dressing Day!!! The day kicked off at 12:01am sharp as the famed Electric Tower in Downtown Buffalo illuminated in blue. All day Monday, local Buffalo restaurants were encouraged to provide patrons with wing specials and ONLY serve blue cheese dressing…regardless of customer demands. The day was culminated at the Buffalo Bisons baseball game Monday Night at Coca-Cola Field starting at 7pm.
Highlights included the Bisons Blue Cheese character getting inducted into the Buffalo Wing Hall of Flame in between innings by the Wing King himself. PLUS the iconic “bobbing for wings” challenge also took place. If you didn’t know, this is a competition where two people dive face first into a kiddie pool filled with blue cheese and pull out as many wings as they can using only their mouth for one minute…you’ve just gotta see this for yourself. ?
