Below is information on our event: the rules, the activities, and the event timeline. Take a look and familiarize yourself with the rules if you plan on competeing and with the activities if you plan on having fun.
Remember, your fellow competitors are your judges
While we provide as much info on ingredients, spiciness rating, etc... You participate at your own risk. We aren't liable. The same goes for booze.
You must eat the entire wing (not just one bite). You must keep the wing down (spitting, throwing up, etc…) or are grounds for immediate disqualification. There are no judges, your neighbors and the crowd will police. Alert the hosts of any discrepancies/issues. Final say is provided by Sean, Andrew and Kevin.
You may not use any aides or products to “help” deter the experience. You can only use what is provided by The Hot Ten. You cannot eat any other foods available to you during the competition. You can only drink what's provided in the bar package. See below activities regarding milk*. Aid examples you cannot bring or consume during competion include but are not limited to: gloves, dairy products, lemon juice, gasoline, or bleach. The last two would be generally stupid, so definitely refrain.
It is now prohibited to strip the drum or "lollipop" the flats. Eat the chicken off the bone as presented. If we wanted to see everyone eat boneless wings, we would have just gone to Buffalo Wild Wings.
Keep pace with the group- if you are the last eater you will suffer the wrath of the crowd- hurry up.
Smoke, pee, or panic before the competition starts. You may get up from your seat and move around, get a drink, cry to your mommy, so long as you do not break any of the aforementioned rules. If you miss a wing you are disqualified.
Swearing, profanity, generally unacceptable language is frowned upon- there may be impressionable attendees. Be respectful.
This would be a huge waste of your time. Examples we've heard and dismissed: Wing vs leg; the size of your wing, sauce ratio, etc… We have standardized the saucing process and presort wings to promote fairness. It is what it is.
This is a charity event run by volunteers. Make it fun for everyone.
We've upgraded our venue to Joe's this year. Please respect their rules and space. If you need to void your bowels or stomach due to wings, please use provided trash cans and/or facilities.
Eat wings and fly.
Should you decide to shamefully bow out of the competition before wing 10 you MUST walk to the middle of the room and ring the bell. Booing and verbal shaming is HIGHLY encouraged by contestants and spectators alike. Feel the emotional burn too.
Add a footnote if this applies to your business
No explanation needed here! Half the pot will go to our featured charity.
This year we will have MANY great raffle prizes including gift cards, hot wing gear, etc... bring some extra $ to participate! Every paid contestant and guest will receive a raffle ticket as part of your entry.
Per the rules, no aids can be used. While we've previously allowed and provided unlimited milk, We are switching it up this year. If you want a glass of milk, It'll cost you a $10 donation for EACH PINT. Donation goes directly to our featured charity. This will ONLY be poured prior to wing #1 SO STOCK UP!! OR after you ring the bell. We are preordering 15 gallons of milk only! Again you can also purchase milk after you are out.

The doors open at 4p. If you are competing, you must be checked in and seated by 4:55. Wing 1 is served promptly at 5p. If you miss kickoff, you are out and ringing that bell.
Beers are pouring at 4p so come early and get your liquid courage down.
If customers can’t find it, it doesn’t exist. Clearly list and describe the services you offer. Also, be sure to showcase a premium service.
Competitors and Spectators will have access to an open bar at the designated Joe's Live space (not Bub City) We are preselecting available drinks. If you want something else you are on your own.
Food- we will have a buffet available so spectators come hungry! competitors can eat before or after, just not during the competition.
We have the event space until 7 pm but welcome all to migrate to Bub City to hang out afterward. The open bar will go to 7 pm only.
We recommend using the parking garage. Joes Live will validate parking. Please don't drink and drive. Nothing worse than a burning bowel movement in jail. yikes.
With your support, we will hold this event annually the last weekend in July. Mark your planner for July 30, 2022 (barring another global pandemic!)
Please follow us on Facebook and Instagram! In addition to enjoying comedic gold, we will preview the sauces and may slip an easter egg or two in! Links at bottom of the webpage.
