    • Hi Thalia! It’s so funny. We were in Atlanta last week reviewing some amazing restaurants for H2FaL, and at the airport on the way home, we stopped into this bar/restaurant. A small place, and I ordered some bourbon maple wings. They were literally the best wings I have ever had in my life! At the Atlanta Airport! Who knew. I just had to try and re-create them. They served the entire wing, which we really liked. It took me a few batches to get them just right, but, oh my goodness are the good!
