Early birds get the wings at restaurant's grand opening

Move over Hooters.

Buffalo Wild Wings, a sports bar chain that boasts more than a dozen signature sauces for its wings, is opening its first Sacramento-area location on Monday.

What's more, the Citrus Heights restaurant, at 6301 Sunrise Boulevard, is offering free wings for a year to the first 100 customers in line for its 11 a.m. opening, the company announced in a news release.

Wing enthusiasts are being told to arrive early and must be present until the doors open to receive the prize. No word on whether the prize comes with a year supply of antacid.

The company also is planning to open a location at 2759 East Bidwell St., Folsom, according to the website.

Speaking of Buffalo Wild Wings' website, one of the most amusing elements is a "Boss" tab on the left side of the home page. Click on the tab, which unfurls the message "Alert! Activate Cloaking Device" and an Excel spreadsheet database of numbers covers your browser. Clever.
