Minisode 1: A Bleu-Collar Town

 

So yeah, I know we said we weren’t going to have a new episode this week. But first of all, this is a minisode–don’t get it twisted. Second, we’re workaholics. You should’ve expected this.

In this minisode, we casually discuss the lore behind two of Buffalo’s biggest food legacies: the chicken wing, and the beef on weck.

To hear the uncensored version of this minisode, and more bonus content, become one of our patrons! https://www.patreon.com/drinkingpoints

Music: “The Last 9 Years” by the Rust Belt Brigade (I said rendition in the episode out of habit. It’s their actual song on their album Rhythm & Roll!)
