The 9th Annual Wing Off proved to be another exciting Super Bowl Sunday here at the Layne House. Everyone did an amazing job. They truly knocked it out of the park. There were a total of eleven different wing recipes and every single one was delicious! It was safe to say that everyone brought their “A" Game this year when it came to their recipe and their presentation. Year after year the competition gets more intense but in a fun way!
We had a great time this year enjoying the delicious wings and watching the football game that will definitely be talked about for years to come. Everyone at the party except for two guys were rooting for the Atlanta Falcons. The first half of the game was filled with cheers every time the Falcons scored. The lonely Patriot fans sat there quietly (pouting! Ha). The tables quickly turned in the second half and all of the cheering we were doing earlier in the night reversed. By the end of the night, we were down to only a single Patriots fan, and wouldn’t you know he got his way. Congratulations Brian! You said it from the very beginning … and they won! Well played New England Patriots … well played (enter slow clap here)! Ha
As Super Bowl 51 was coming to an end so was our party. The wings had been eaten, the votes had been tallied, and the results were in. Everyone’s hard work had not been in vain. Congratulations to all of the winners!

This was the first time that Miss Lauren has participated in our annual Wing Off competition, and she walked away with the title of Best Presentation this year. Way to go Lauren! I can’t wait to see what you come up with next year.
Here are just a few of my favorite images from a very memorable evening. I’m already counting down the days until next year! Enjoy and Happy Monday!
