Day 14: The Elite Eight - Chicken wings vs Poutine

The ultimate question of meat versus potatoes finally gets its answer. Makin' history.

Posted on Tue, Apr 2, 2013 at 10:44 AM

This is it, shit's starting to get real, folks. Don't get too scared now. All you salt-mongerers and beer garglers cut our list of tasty treats down to eight and this is what's happening now. Did you just fall off the bus? We're marching through madness over here, read this for for the low down. And check out the updated bracket to see the way things have been toppling.

Before I get into the whosits and whatsits of today let's take a minute to grieve the loss of that brew-battled renegade Keith's, it went down with barely a fight, collapsing with 19 percent of the vote while Propeller IPA happily danced a jig on its grave, commanding a neat 80 percent of the vote (don't question my math, dammit, I have an English degree) and going down in history as the Keith's assassin—the indie brew that finally brought the monster down. Now what will your dad drink? Heavy stuff, bro.

But today, today is where the real deals get made, where the age-old question of meat versus potatoes really comes a-callin'. On the one hand you've got the illustrious chicken wings, so beloved by snackers of all ages, that they have more than one day a week devoted to gobblin' them on the cheep (haha see what I did there?). And on the other hand you've got potatoes all dressed up and fancy-like, fried to a crisp perfection, drowning in your favourite part of turkey dinner and paired with the ultimate heavy weight—cheese. Don't mess with cheese, you'll only get burned. What's it going to come down to? Protein or carbs? There can be only one. (But, really there shouldn't, consider your food-pyramid health.)
