The Morning Star is cooking up some friendly competition to determine who has the best wings in Vernon.

Five local restaurants are fired up and taking part in the contest, which will see local residents determine who has the tastiest wings.

The Green, Kal Sports Bar and Grill, The Longhorn Pub, Original Joe’s Restaurant and Bar and Squires Four Pub are the contestants.

“Following the highly successful ‘Best Burger’ contest, these local pubs have stepped up to the challenge to compete for the coveted title of Vernon’s Best Wings,” said Ian Jensen, Morning Star publisher.

“Squires is looking to claim a second victory, after earning the Best Burger title, but they have some hot and saucy competition.”

The contest runs until Aug. 21 at www.vernonmorningstar.com (under the contest tab on the top right corner).

You can vote up to five times a day and the winning restaurant will be featured in The Morning Star.

One lucky voter will also receive a $200 gift certificate from the winning restaurant.

Watch The Morning Star for ongoing coverage of the contest.
