062710 _ As the previous night’s alcohol was wearing off and the hangover was on the horizon, a group of 13 of us descended upon Pluckers on Rio Grande while the Argentina and Mexico game was underway and asked for a table for 13. Luckily, there was a single table available inside and it was for 10, we jammed a bit more dudes into the booth, but that didn’t stop us for the wing demolition that was going to inevitably occur this fine Sunday Funday.
Our stomachs guided us towards the Holy Macaroni, Fried Pickles, Waffles n Cheese, Stuffed Jalapeños, 50 Lemon Pepper Wings, 25 Buffalo Medium Wings, 25 Honey BBQ, 25 Fire In The Hole and I decided to be cutesy and order a side salad. You read that list correctly, our own wonderkid Bui decided he wanted to be on the wall. His mission was to finish what I called “the devil’s shit” that came in the form of 25 Fire In The Hole wings. Another friend commented that they instantly numbed his mouth after just sniffing and barely tasting the seasoning. I can only pray that Bui’s ass is in one piece tonight. The wings are great at this Austin staple, it’s definitely the neighborhood place to kick it when you’re cheering on your buddy or watching a World Cup game, just don’t let us Houstonian’s take over, we’ll be wooo-ing! it up in no time, and no it isn’t because your Argentina scored a goal against the Mexican team, it’s because we’re rowdy and our boy Bui finished all 25 in fine fashion. Take that Devil!
3/5: The Lemon Pepper and the cute waitress are reasons enough to commit to the Rio Grand Pluckers
