Dude is still over in China, eating it up. Literally. Ha! My birthday falls on the same day as National Day in China. So here is how he celebrated both events, with Vicky and Shirley, in his own words:
"This year I thought I would give Lord of the Wings a belated birthday wing review. I traveled to
Chengdu, Sichuan Province here in . It was their National Day and let me tell you…so many people!! China
Two things stuck out for me on this trip. The pandas and the food.
is famous for their spicy food. We hit up this famous hotpot place and they of course served wings. Sichuan

hotpot @ Shu Jiu Xiang Sichuan
This is their famous hotpot. One of the best meals I’ve had in China thus far. I mean really really good!
This is us cooking. So much fun! Now its time for the wings….
It doesn’t look too tasty here, but they were pretty good. And hot.
My Zoolander impression getting ready for the wings.
This is us processing the heat, each of us had our own techniques:
Vicky with the classic drinking to cool down her taste buds.
I went for the “zoned out” approach. Trying mind over matter. I may look calm…but my mind is saying…”This tastes like the surface of the sun”.
Shirley went for the traditional eating bread to neutralize the heat. Well played Shirley, well played.

Of course we had to get rid of the burning in our mouths…and what better way than………Chicken Wing ice cream???
Ok, no this is just chocolate…but it helped the burning!
Happy National Day! AND Happy Birthday Wing King!"
Thanks Dude - looks like a fun and tasty time!
