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.

Red & Black Cafe Financial Aid Contributions Approach $50,000

RBC LogoFor almost a decade beginning in 2005, we have been contributing 1% of our gross sales from the Red & Black Cafe to support financial aid.  Our 1% For Aid campaign has now just reached over $48,000.  These funds have been restricted to financial aid and since 2009 we have specifically directed these funds to the Johannah Justin Jinich ’10 scholarship, (a cause dear to our hearts).

As we begin our 12th year in business, we appreciate all the support we’ve received from students and will continue to support you.
