What a great evening! Despite having to dodge raindrops and jump through puddles during the short walk to the pavilion, the “Wings over Williston” aka Larry’s all-you-can-eat Buffalo chicken wing feast was a lot of fun.
When we arrived at the pavilion just before 5:30 p.m., it was already quite crowded and a line had formed at the serving table. Long tables and chairs had been set up with seating for at least 100 people was available (note the photo above was prior to Wednesday). Larry, the head buffalo wing honcho, was seasoning and cooking up the wings, while another guy, Herb, who we had met the day before, was frying both sweet potato and plain fries. Several other people were helping out serving. We were told by a couple in line in front of us that Larry used to own a restaurant supposedly in Buffalo that served wings so the general consensus was that he knew what he was doing. At least 8 wings were piled into a napkin lined, paper basket along with either sweet potato or plain fries and given to each person. We could then help ourselves to pasta salad (which was excellent) and celery and carrots and a small container of blue cheese. If you didn’t bring your own beverage, iced tea and water were available. The food was really good and well worth the $7 charge.
After we picked up our food, we found a couple of seats at one of the long tables and immediately started chatting with several of the very friendly people seated across from us. It’s funny how sometimes you can meet people and for whatever reason you just click with them. Well, that’s how it was with Sue and Tim, Bob (Tim’s Dad), and his Aunt Shirley and Uncle Dean from Indiana. RV’ing is a lot like boating – there’s always a lot of stories and experiences to share when you are with fellow campers. You quickly find that you have a lot in common.
We spent several hours chatting and then when it was time to leave, we made arrangements to get together in the morning before we departed for our next destination so we could exchange our contact information.
Luckily the rain had stopped and it was a short walk back to our site where we settled in for the evening.
More about our departure later…..
