The Country’s Top Spot to Celebrate National Chicken Wing Day: 20 Limited Edition Types of Wings + The Hottest Wing Sauce Ever Made

If You Love Chicken Wings, Then You Must Be at Chicago’s Jake Melnick’s Corner Tap on July 29th

CHICAGO, July 26, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Jake Melnick’s Corner Tap, one of the Windy City’s most beloved neighborhood hangouts widely known for their outstanding wings, is celebrating National Chicken Wing Day (July 29th) in a BIG way!

From Friday, July 29th through the weekend, Jake Melnick’s will be serving 20 different types of wings – including the country’s hottest wings made with weapons-grade peppers (yes, that’s right: Jake Melnick’s had to secure approval from Homeland Security and the FDA to purchase the world’s hottest peppers for the original recipe.) Known as the XXXX Hot Wing, these tongue-scorchers feature four of the hottest peppers known to mankind: Habanero Peppers, Ghost Peppers – which are so spicy they have been weaponized and used in pepper spray for crowd control – Scorpion Peppers, which are twice as hot at Ghost Peppers and Reaper Peppers.

Over the years, Jake Melnick’s has earned "best wings" accolades locally and nationally, including being named a Top Spot for Wings in the U.S. by the TODAY show. Jake’s wings are wonderfully meaty, a little bit crispy and lacquered in the best-tasting gourmet sauces you’ve ever had.
