I too am a fan of a few wings a good beer. But the wings i make are the best ones I've had. They're (more or less) the only wings i eat. The prep work is a little annoying, but the payoff is great. 

What i do is try to get the skin as dry as possible by putting them uncovered on a baking rack in the fridge overnight. I usually coat them with a little baking soda and sea salt beforehand, but its not necessary.  Then i bake them in the oven for 35-40 minutes at 400. They taste much better and are crisper than deep fried IMO. And a healthier, too. I use two types of sauce to toss them - a typical franks red hot buffalo sauce with a little extra fresh ground pepper, and my garlic parmesan mix. I literally just toss any powdered parmesan with some garlic powder and pepper in a bowl. I use a tiny bit of olive oil cut with apple cider vinegar as a binder with the sauce, but it tastes great with melted butter too. As everything does..

I'm a big fan of baking wings with a good dry rub. I mix a little bit of baking powder in with the dry rubs and that helps to crisp them up too.

There's a place near Hartford, Connecticut called J. Timothy's that I saw on a few "best wings in the country" lists. I've been there a few times and can verify that they're the best I've had. I've also been to a place in Greenport, New York, on Long Island called Salamander's that has probably the second best wings I've had.

I've never been to Wingstop but my favorite chain restaurant wings are at Wings Over. Their boneless wings are awesome.

@jamo Where in CT are you? I'm in MA now but grew up in Tolland, there's a great wing place in Coventry - Bidwell Tavern.

I'll have to check out Salamander's when I'm out in LI in a few weeks, where in Greenport is it? Claudio's is our usual spot to hit up right in Greenport. I have family in Orient and East Marion so I'm out that way at least a few times a year. If you like good beer you should hit up Greenport Harbor Brewing next time you're out there, they've got a great setup.

Bidwell Tavern in Coventry, CT has great wings, they have like 30 different rubs and sauces to choose from. Enrico's in Sturbridge, MA has really good brick oven wings and Smokestack BBQ in Worcester has awesome smoked wings.

I live in Norwich and work in New London, so Coventry isn't too bad. I'll have to check it out.

Salamander's is right on Front st in the same building as Arcade, just around the corner from Claudio's. IIRC think they have a bar you can walk right up to from the sidewalk or you can walk in and sit down.

I've never been to Greenport Harbor Brewing but I'll be taking the New London-Orient ferry and staying in Cutchogue next weekend for the US Open, so I'll be passing right through. I'll have to check it out.

I've been to Smokestack in Worcester but I haven't had the wings. Never been to Enrico's.

Wing House had the best wings in FL IMO. Here in Ohio, I have to go with Roosters, although I had some Friday night a 571 Grill in New Carlisle. They marinate them overnight, then rub and smoke them for 3.5 hours. I tried the sweet habenero sauce, and it was AWESOME!  Hinders (think Hooters but reversed) in Tipp City has really good wings too.

    • Day 85: A bit of putting practice after getting home from a long travel day. 
    • I am still searching for a “drop in handicap.” My game seems to be improving but I am still not scoring lower. Can’t explain it.
    • I remember going through those types of situations. A combination of perhaps a fear of damaging the beautiful turf and not having some taller grass to support the ball up off the solid ground. Hitting out of the rough allows more leeway or room for error. during one such period I went to the range and spent quite a while brushing the turf between each shot to get familiar with what I had to work with and get comfortable with a tight lie. eventually you will come to realize that it really comes down to developing a consistent low point to the swing through lots of practice. 
    • Day 116 (23 Oct 21) - worked w/putter and straight edge.  Used both the DF992 and White Steel #5 - big difference in feel.  Drills were to overcome the push I tend to see.  More work needed, but the straightedge does provide the right feedback. 
    • I have been playing on a couple of inexpensive courses to learn , I played on an expensive country club course today and the fairways were in better condition than the greens at the courses I usually play. Very short grass.   I had a very very hard time hitting off these fairways ,  I had been getting into a groove on the lesser courses and my play was rapidly improving with my off fairway approach game being the best part of my game. I went from hitting at least 10 80 to 100 yard shots in a round onto the green from the fairway to hitting maybe 3 of 13 of them today. My hits were a medley of ground balls , tops, and other disasters.    The only grass range I have access to has very coarse rough type grass , should I just practice taking some exaggerated divots on it ? I read about playing a tee 8” or so in front of the ball to practice hitting ahead of it. Open to any other suggestions. Today was humbling.
