Due to short notice, we have to make other arrangements for our Lunch for the Wings Across Tenn. this year, here is what we will be having:
Big Kahuna Wings is providing Traditional Wings with either mild or hot sauce, baked beans,potato salad, chips and bottled water. (If you want something else to drink, you will need to bring your own.)The cost will be $10.00 per person. It is important that you advise when you register for the ride in Bristol so we can get an accurate count for them before leaving Bristol. Of course, if this is not a meal you can eat, feel free to bring your own lunch.
They were very accommodating to do this in such short notice and I realize this may not be the favorite for all. We will see how it goes this year, and we can always try another meal for next year.
