We took our laptops to Texenza Coffee Shop and filled out our NCAA Men’s BB Tourney brackets, then slipped over to Pluckers for some wings. There are several levels of hot wings and then there is the XXXXXX Hot wings, also called “Fire in the Hole”. Will Krauss ate about 5 or 6 of those, Mike Tapia ate 2 or 3 and I ate only 1. It was so hot that I almost felt my tongue melting. It was the hottest thing I had ever eaten. The waiter said that they take their hottest sauce and then mix in ground-up habeneros. OUCH.
I was wondering….WHY…while I gussled down ice cold water. I still don’t have an answer other than it was an unforgettable night with 3 friends. That is hard to beat.
