Snacking on a wing and a prayer

Ready to face the world's hottest chicken wings? Remember to sign the waiver first, agreeing not to sue the restaurant if you end up in hospital.

07 Jan 2008

A Chicago tavern, Corner Tap, will begin selling chicken wings coated in one of the world's hottest peppers – a dish so hot that patrons first have to sign a waiver agreeing not to sue for injuries.

Jake Melnick's Corner Tap said the wings made with Red Savina pepper will be served with an alarm bell for patrons to summon waiters with sour cream, milk sugar and white bread if things get out of hand.

Levy Restaurants, which owns the tavern, said its chef d'Cuisine Robin Rosenberg had been working on the concept for years but was never sure he'd be able to serve it.

"This isn't the right sauce for everyone, but for someone out there, this is going to be absolute heaven. Of course, for a handful of people, it's going to be hell," he said.
