I think I speak for all of the DCBeer.com writers when I say that I’m impressed by the kind of reaction our poll last week got. Almost 225 voters cast almost 300 votes for their favorite wing places in DC!

So the results are in! Which six venues made the cut and will comprise the second round of the wing tasting? Here they are:

# Duffy’s (33%, 74 Votes)
# Nanny O’Briens (32%, 71 Votes)
# The Big Hunt (11%, 24 Votes)
# Capitol Lounge (9%, 20 Votes)
# Churchkey (9%, 20 Votes)
# The Black Squirrel (9%, 20 Votes)

And who were the unfortunate venues who just didn’t quite make it? Well…here they are. Better luck next year!

# Bourbon (6%, 14 Votes)
# Other (Vote in Comments!) (4%, 10 Votes)
# Tonic (4%, 10 Votes)
# Meridian Pint (4%, 10 Votes)
# RFD (3%, 7 Votes)
# Union Pub (3%, 7 Votes)
# Marshall’s (1%, 2 Votes)
# Cleveland Park Bar and Grill (1%, 2 Votes)
# Grand Central (0%, 1 Votes)


So what’s next? Sometime in November, Andrew and I, and our two guest judges will head out to the six venues who you decided should be considered among the best and we’ll score them on a rubric that we’ll release in the next week for your consideration and critique!

Then, after that glorious day of wing eating, we’ll report back to you who won and announce the date for a DCBeer.com tweet-up featuring the winning wings!

Cheers and thanks for your participation in the poll! Be sure to check the sidebar for new polls, which we’re going to try to get up on a more frequent basis! As always, thanks for reading DCBeer.com!
