Super Bowl Sunday at Bank Street Brewhouse: Asian Chicken Wings and to-go growlers.

Straight up, and as a prelude to what follows, kindly note that in the purest and most objective of senses, I believe that whenever Bank Street Brewhouse's Chef Josh Lehman has his Asian Chicken Wings on the menu, BSB is the place to go for wings -- in all of Kentuckiana.

Chef Josh has revealed that for the Super Bowl on February 6th, the BSB kitchen will be preparing Asian Chicken Wings for consumption both in-house, and carry-out. Not only that, but there'll be special Super Bowl pricing.

Your first dozen wings purchased on Super Bowl Sunday cost $9; nine is the total Super Bowl wins between the two teams, with the Green Bay Packers winning three, and the Pittsburgh Steelers six.

Each additional wing (after 12) will cost .45 cents apiece, this being Super Bowl XLV.

You must purchase the first dozen before the individual .45 cent wings can be purchased, and you are highly encouraged to call ahead for orders larger than two dozen.

If, like me, you're wondering why BSB's Asian Chicken Wings are so consistently good, here is Chef Josh's explanation.

The chicken wings are brined for twenty four hours to impart moisture and flavor, deep fried, and then tossed in a mixture of hot chili sauce, sweet chili sauce, soy, sesame oil, ginger, coriander and rice wine vinegar.

Furthermore, if you ask me, the quality of chicken that Chef Josh uses is far above the local standard, and his wings are invariably plump, juicy and delicious.

Also on Sunday, don't forget that NABC's Bank Street Brewhouse is the only establishment in Floyd, Clark and Harrison counties (and points beyond in Southern Indiana) permitted to sell carry-out beer. The growlers should be going out the door quickly, and alongside those wings ... heavens. I might even be able to tolerate the idiotic commercials.
