Could be fun: On January 22 the Spectrum will be screening The Great Chicken Wing Hunt, a documentary about the search for the world's best Buffalo chicken wing. Event Blurbage:

THE GREAT CHICKEN WING HUNT is an award-winning documentary comedy about Buffalo wings and the band of misfits who set out to find the world's best one. Join us for the Albany premiere of the film critics call "The Big Lebowski of documentaries" and "One of the bonafide best movies of the year". Featuring several scenes shot in Albany. Associate Producer and Albany native Melinda Person will introduce the film. Director Matt Reynolds will Skype in for a Q&A.

The trailer is after the jump.

And here's a review of the doc by Eater's Joshua David Stein from this past November -- he calls it "hugely enjoyable."

The screening at the Spectrum is Wednesday, January 22 at 7 pm. Tickets are $10 and available online.

This is an excellent film! I saw it at the Woodstock Film Festival and the crowd absolutely loved it. They had an after party at a local bar where the winning chef was selling his sauce.

There's some good Albany-love in this movie too.

And even more unfortunate if, as has already happened at the nano college, these untaxed buildings serve as a tax haven for businesses that would otherwise be contributing to the City of Albany or a neighboring jurisdiction.
