The football season is officially upon on us, and with that the search for the perfect serving of wings becomes paramount. The right amount of sauce, spice and breading is crucial to any successful gameday. It can get a bit tricky, though, because nearly every sports bar around has (sometimes painfully generic) wings on the menu, but we're looking for some creativity. This list below presents some of our favorite wings around, including some of the winners from the Third Annual UCP Heartland Wing Ding. So enjoy, and let our list be the wind beneath your wings.

Three Kings Public House

(6307 Delmar Boulevard, University City; 3 14-721-3355)

Recently at the Third Annual UCP Heartland Wing Ding, Three Kings Public House represented itself well, winning the "Best Traditional" and "Best Specialty" categories. The "Three Kings' Wings" are double dipped in its near-perfect signature sauce, or you can change things up and substitute the spicy Thai sauce, either way is pretty great. But for the best specialty wings category, Three Kings' "Chicken & Waffles," served with bacon jam and maple syrup, stepped up to declare supremacy. Combine your wings with a fantastic and constantly rotating draft list, plus plenty of flat-screens, and you've yourself got a nice little Sunday.

Fallon's Bar and Grill
(9200 Olive Boulevard, Olivette; 314-991-9800)

Fallon's Bar and Grill is a neighborhood Irish pub in Olivette that, from the outside, appears pretty unassuming, but just so happens to cook up some excellent wings. So good, in fact, it took second place in the "Best Traditional" category at Wing Ding. Sit outside (after this godforsaken heat wave passes, of course) on the newly renovated patio and order wings in quantities of ten or twenty and grab a Guinness to help take the edge off the spiciness. Fallon's offers a daily happy hour and drink specials plus trivia for you to enjoy as you lick the sauce off your fingers.

Until the day I die or the day they change their recipie I say that Michaels (Manchester and McCauseland) has the best wings and if they ever entered them in a contest, their wings would win hands down.
