Dining

Chicken Wing Eating Competition at Nickel City. Don't chicken out, wing and whiskey lovers. Nickel City's inaugural chicken wing-eating competition invites you out to the neighborhood bar on National Buffalo Wing Day, but you won't actually have to participate. Instead, four local bar teams (from Crow Bar, B.D. Riley's Irish Pub, Last Straw and Lustre Pearl on Rainey) will go head-to-wing in an epic battle, while you enjoy 35-cent wings all day long. There will also be Monkey Shoulder and Tullamore DEW cocktails. Noon July 29. Free. 1133 E. 11th St. facebook.com/events/689769818160703

Shark Week at Little Woodrow's Parmer. One of the most thrilling weeks of television has returned, but you don't need to watch it alone on your couch.
