Local eatery to sell 70,000 chicken wings in days around Super Bowl


PLAINVILLE, Conn. (WTNH) — It’s hard to be infected with football fever without first receiving a dose of something hot and spicy. At J. Timothy’s Taverne in Plainville their prescription for a fun Super Bowl experience first requires you answer this question, “got wings?”

Kevin Anderson is a server at the establishment who in the days around the Super Bowl performs his duties in a back room loaded with bags filled with everything people need to chow down on Sunday.

“We package them up, mostly buckets, we’ll give them the sauce on the side so they can sauce the wings,” said Anderson.

The wings that come in their “kits,” bought by those trying to get a head start on their Super Bowl party, are pre-cooked.

J. Timothy’s general manager, Greg Gardner, estimates business jumps this time of year 15% which translates to about 70,000 pieces of chicken sold, enough that if you lined them up would run the length of at least 220 tractor tailors.

The National Retail Federation estimates 15.5-billion dollars will be spent this year on the Super Bowl.
