Slice of Vegas featuring “Swag Wings” in February

Slice of Vegas Swag Wings

 

An insider Twin City recipe is making its way to Sin City this month at Slice of Vegas inside The Shoppes at Mandalay Place.  In the 60s and 70s a little old man peddled his unique secret recipe chicken wings to the late night club goers in Minneapolis-Saint Paul, selling out each night.  As legend has it, business grew and the owner passed the recipe down to his two loyal employees, Shorty and Wags and Swag Wings were born.  Capturing the fried chicken flavor of the south and the spicy wing crazy of the north, the wings are crisp and flavorful. Six wings are served over seasoned fries with ranch and sweet and sour dipping sauces for $10.95
