BELATED BLOGIVERSARY #7 - Best & Worst of 2012




The end of the world never came (it never was going to anyway) - but I ate wings like it was going to. 2012 was bitter sweet for me. Lots of great memories, lots of great wings. The downside was the neglect of the Blog. Life got busy, my job got bigger, and it became a lot harder to write the blog.



So many delays and it really bothered me that a big part of me was put off. Even this list is a month over due. But things are coming back to normal. My passion for wings and writing is just as strong as ever, and I may never get to cover everything I want to, but I will write on.  2012 brought lots of new wings, and so will 2012.

Let's get to the best and worst of 2012. A reminder, these rankings are for 2012 and 2012 alone. Best Wings Toronto 2012 are just the ones I reviewed in 2012, and not comparing them to previous years. Got it? Good.
