Philly’s Casino Announces Co-title Sponsorship of City’s Biggest Eating Competition

PHILADELPHIA—Dec. 14, 2012—It’s that time of year again. Football season is coming to an end, and while the Birds won’t be in the Super Bowl, they will plentiful at Wing Bowl. That’s why SugarHouse is proud to announce its third consecutive sponsorship of the Wing Bowl, one of Philly’s biggest eating competitions and traditions.

For 21 years, SportsRadio WIP’s annual Wing Bowl has been a Philadelphia staple, and it has quickly become one of the city’s most celebrated traditions with eating competitors coming in from around the world. This year, SugarHouse will serve as a co-title sponsor, along with Steven Singer Jewelers.

SugarHouse is kicking off the Wing Bowl season by hosting its first-ever Wingette event on Friday, Dec. 14 from 8—9:30 p.m. at The Refinery restaurant and bar. Join WIP’s Marc Farzetta and former Eagle Hollis Thomas as women compete for a spot as a Wingette by wearing their best lingerie. Guests will be able to vote for their favorite, and the winner will also receive an all-inclusive, three night trip for two to the Barcelo Hotel and Resort in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.

Guests at the Wingette event can enjoy $2 beer, $3 wine and $4 mixed drinks from 8—10 p.m., plus a wing bowl platter for $12.95, which includes assorted wings, fries and onion rings. And, stick around afterward to enjoy music from The Exceptions.

“You can’t be part of the fabric of Philly without participating in events like the Wing Bowl,” said Wendy Hamilton, general manager of SugarHouse Casino. “SugarHouse is giving Philadelphians three ways to celebrate the city’s biggest eating competition, and we can’t wait to see who will be the 2013 champion.”

On Thursday, Jan. 10, the SugarHouse Wing-off is back, allowing guests and wing-eating enthusiasts to compete for a coveted spot at Wing Bowl 21. Farzetta and Thomas will return for the event, from 6—8 p.m., and eaters will have 10 minutes to consume as many wings as possible.

Finally, join SugarHouse and their sponsored competitor for the main event on Friday, Feb. 1, when WIP presents Wing Bowl 21 at the Wells Fargo Center, starting at 6 a.m. SugarHouse will be hosting the official after party back at its Refinery restaurant where WIP will have a live broadcast. Food and drink specials will also be available.
