Here’s an event which was so good it left folks hungry for more.
The second annual Guitar Strings vs. Chicken Wings is Friday at the Village at Squaw Valley. It’s a battle of bands and restaurants with proceeds going to the Tahoe Institute for Natural Sciences.
Each restaurant will prepare its own recipe for spicy, flavor-packed chicken wings. The winning band will be rewarded with a lucrative return engagement.
Here’s the lineup:
[Group A: Plays from 6-7 p.m. and 8-9 p.m.]
Drop Theory at Twenty-Two Bistro
Thick Newton at Fireside Pizza Company
Matt Reardon and Montagne at Mamasake
[Group B: Plays from 7-8 p.m. and 9-10 p.m.]
One Track Mind at The Auld Dubliner
Bad Move Smooth at Rocker@Squaw
TBD at Cornice Cantina
Entry is a $5 donation to have the wing and drink specials, as well as the opportunity to pick the the winners. Restaurants will battle for the Wing vs. Wing Champion Trophy as well as Wing and Band Best Pairing. Registration begins at 5:30 p.m. in the Events Plaza. Registered event attendees will get great prices on the special wings at four wings for $5 or nine wings for $10, plus beer and drink specials available at each restaurant.
One lucky event-goer will go home with a guitar, donated by Guitar Center, that will be raffled off at the end of the night.
The Tahoe Institute of Natural Sciences seeks to advance the natural history, conservation, and ecosystem knowledge of the Tahoe region through science, education and outreach. TINS partnered with Squaw Valley to bring free guided-hikes to the resort this summer and the organization has a long-term goal of bringing a world-class interpretive nature center and educational facility to the Tahoe area.
