If you love taking your food up a notch with the heat, you'll love this hot chicken wing challenge coming to Copper City Brewing Company of Rome.

On Wednesday August 3rd between 3PM - 8PM, you can take on the Hot Wing Challenge with the local food truck guru Wing’n It by Spudz. It all takes place at Copper City Brewing Company of Rome located at 1111 Oneida Street.

Here's what the challenge is: You'll have 10 minutes to eat 5 super hot wings. If that wasn't hard enough, you have to conquer a 5 minute burn with nothing to drink during the challenge to truly feel the heat.

If you finish them successfully, you'll end up getting a beer on Copper City and an order of wings to take home with you. Let's be honest, unofficially you can brag and call yourself the Hot Wings King or Queen of Rome.

For those that don't know, Wing’n It by Spudz is a roaming food truck that sells dishes with a gourmet twist. You can catch them throughout the the streets of Utica, Whitestown, Rome and the greater Oneida county region. You can follow them on Facebook to get more details on their exact location, and browse their menu too.

Copper City Brewing Company was established to bring Rome's rich brewing history back to life. At its Canal-era peak in the 1850s, Rome was home to about a dozen breweries. Now, Danny Frieden and his partner Eric Daniels have reached a point where many of those aged across the board gather to enjoy their brews. Mostly classic craft styles are on tap at Copper City.

Read On! A Lucky List of 13 of the Best Hot Wing Restaurants in Central NY

As an Upstate New York travel writer I am on the road in the region some 30-40,000 miles a year. And along the way I have stopped at hundreds of places to eat over the last 15 years. Now, my go to meal is always Italian, but...if I am not in the mood for a full sit-down meal I am always good for a bowl of hot wings in a tavern or inn. Here are 13 of the best wing joints in Upstate New York. I have kept the big chains and franchises off the list although they are for the most part excellent (places like Dinosaur BBQ, or Tullys). This list shines the light on smaller, independent, out of the way places that often get missed in the "Best of..." contests and polls, and yet are truly putting out some epic wings. Try them out!
