So Tuesday Was Kinda Wild

We’ve gotten pretty good at handling natural disasters over the past few years.  While there is a great deal of planning that goes into such an event, we would never be able to pull it off without our staff.  Both full-timers and students made their way through the storm to keep the lights on and our customers fed.

  • Stephanie Andrasik
  • Nick August
  • Jessica Carlson ’16
  • Dandara Catete  ’15
  • Francine Denny
  • Hannah Fritz ’18
  • Krista Kaffen
  • Rick Kmietek
  • Robert McGiveron
  • Mike Mitchell
  • Callie Monroe ’17
  • Brian Rahrig
  • Hannah Rimm ’15
  • Shourya Sen ’15
  • Emma Singer ’15
  • Job Vasquez

And of course co-owner, fearless leader Karen Kaffen-Polascik (Ed was in an undisclosed bunker for security reasons)

These were the people who fed hundreds of you including over 700 just at dinner alone.  That’s 700 meals MADE TO ORDER.  We broke our record set during the dinner after Blizzard Nemo in 2013.

We are very thankful to them and to our customers for their patience and understanding during a very busy day and stressful couple of days.

-Karen & Ed

Blizzard’s Over On to the Super Bowl

katy-perry-super-bowl-halftime-show20140203040017!Puppy_BowlKaty Perry, Puppy Bowl XI, Super Bowl XLIX, there’s just so much going on this Sunday.

Here’s what you need to know.

  • We will be open all day Sunday 11am-8pm.
  •  Brunch will be served 11am-2pm.
  • We will be open 2pm-5pm for Chicken Wing orders
  • Full Menu for dinner 5pm-8pm

If you would like to order wings in advance, you can.  Just stop by anytime this week to place your order and reserve a time to pick up.  Remember kick-off is 6:30.  We suggest getting your orders in early because it’s the Super Bowl and we’re a wing place.

That said, here’s the funny thing.  It’s the Super Bowl, we’re a wing place but once the game starts at 6:30 we are totally dead.  EMPTY, NOBODY HERE.  This means for those of you who aren’t into the game but are into ‘Swings, you can come by on a Sunday, no less, and enjoy Penne Vodka without the huge crowds.


Here We Snow Again

WesWings will remain OPEN all day until 8pm

While we usually close at 2pm and re-open at 5pm, we are staying open all afternoon serving lunch.  Dinner specials will begin at 5pm.

(special thanks to our student employees helping out to make this possible)


We’re getting done.  We will be opening at 11:30 AM.  



1 Hour Delay.  Our staff is slowly making it in and Wesleyan grounds is plowing and digging us out.  At his time we are planning for a 12 noon opening.  We will continue to update if we are able to open sooner or if there is a further delay.




We are in contact with our staff and assessing conditions.  We will be updating at 10:00 am to let everyone know if we will open on time at 11:00 or if there will be a delay.



Broad Street Books and Red & Black Cafe will be CLOSED Tuesday.  Depending on the severity of the storm there may also be a delayed opening on Wednesday.  WesWings is still planning on opening on Tuesday.  We will update if there are any changes or delays.


Hey juniors and seniors, remember how much fun we had two years ago?  So the latest is for a blizzard starting Monday night going until Tuesday night.  Couple of feet of snow, 50 mph winds blah blah blah.

We have been busy planning for this latest event.

As of Sunday 8pm:  Both locations plan to be open during the storm.  We will be meeting with the staff at Broad Street Books Monday to discuss contingency plans for the bookstore and cafe.  It is possible there will be either a delayed opening or closure on Tuesday.

While we are extremely committed to remaining open, the safety of our employees is our first priority. We will be updating this post throughout the storm over the next few days.  If you don’t already, please follow us on twitter for up to the minute updates

Scorpion Added to Beyond Wings of Death

Trinidad-Scorpion-Moruga-5.jpgThe Trinidad Moruga Scorpion Pepper is now considered one of the hottest peppers in the world.  Not wanting to miss out, we have created a new “Beyond Wings of Death” sauce that blends both the old champ, the Bhut Jolokia (Ghost pepper) with flakes of the Moruga scorpion pepper.  While we aim for heat, we also demand flavor.


If you are someone who loves really really spicy food, give our new blend a try and tell us what you think.


New Chef, Old Chef

FullSizeRenderJeff Roberts was recently re-hired as our chef at WesWings.  Jeff had worked for us back in the 90s, during the early years of our empire.  For the past sixteen years he has amassed a great deal of experience and culinary knowledge that he now brings back to us.  Most recently, he was working at the upscale Bin 300 in Wolcott, CT.

While we will maintain many of our old favorites, look for new specials this semester, as Jeff looks to expand and enhance our offerings.
