Essay question: Why should I drink here?
Wing Shack is a quintessential American sports bar. It’s local, it’s reasonably friendly and it’s designed with the sports fan in mind: Whether you’re at a table or sitting at the bar, you can see a TV from pretty much any vantage point. When football season is on, this place is hoppin’ on game nights. It’s a place where people gather to watch the game, eat bar food and down pitchers of inexpensive beer.
