Love hot wings?
Mark your calendar for Monday, July 26 when Buffalo Wild Wings in Cape Girardeau will celebrate its newly remodeled location by giving away Free Wings for a Year to the first 150 people in line to see its new look.
The restaurant, owned by Bill Zellmer, is planning upgrades both inside and out. It will close at 8 p.m. Sunday, July 18 and remain closed until 10 a.m. Monday, July 26 as crews work to complete renovations.
New furniture, new kitchen equipment, new paint, new flooring and a new storefront are all planned.
The seating will be redesigned to allow for an additional 50 seats. Booths will be added in the bar area.
Upgraded bar equipment will be installed including a new beer tap system with 35 taps.
About ten new employees will be hired to serve the additional customers the restaurant will now be able to hold, Zellmer said.
For those who like to come to Buffalo Wild Wings to watch the game, new HD televisions and two 110 inch HD projectors are planned.
All of the restaurant's existing televisions, kitchen equipment and more will be auctioned at 10 a.m. Monday, July 19 in the Town Plaza shopping center parking lot. The auction will be conducted by Miller Auction Service.
Zellmer, who also owns Buffalo Wild Wings in Carbondale, Sikeston, Poplar Bluff and Farmington, said he has seen huge crowds waiting in line for Free Wings for a Year at his other restaurants that have done this promotion before. People have camped out overnight in the restaurants' parking lot to receive the coupon books containing certificates for an order of 6 free wings each week for a year.
