Arnold’s Bar and Grill: The Wings of Death
210 E 8th St., Downtown
Limited Edition. Only Available during Cincinnati Wing Week. Can you handle the Wings of Death? Arnold’s traditional Franks and butter Buffalo Sauce has been dialed up about 10 notches by adding in the three hottest hot sauces on Hot Ones Season 1 (Blair’s Megadeath with Liquid Rage, Mad Dog 357, Da Bomb: Beyond Insanity). Then a bunch of Ghost Peppers, Carolina Reaper, Scorpion Peppers, Lemon Drop Peppers and more were put into a blender and thrown on the wings. The experience is completed with a light dusting of Dried Carolina Reaper powder. Vinyl gloves available upon request. (Disclaimer: If you do not enjoy extremely spicy food, you should not eat this. If you do enjoy eating extremely spicy food and you think “this is not that hot” your taste buds are most likely dead and we can’t do anything for you. Either way, no refunds.)
