Lou Williams’ Magic City wings are apparently totally worth it
Of all the reasons to go through an extended quarantine in the NBA bubble, the need for chicken wings is a pretty hilarious one. Rapper Jack Harlow accidentally revealed that Los Angeles Clippers guard Lou Williams had recently visited the Magic City strip club in Atlanta during an excused absence to say goodbye to a lost loved one. Williams wasn’t there for the ladies, though, but rather the scrumptious wings.
Even before this incident became a meme, the Magic City wings had already gained quite a reputation, especially with Williams. He even has wings named after him on the menu. Williams’ Magic City incident has only raised the club’s profile, with word of their delectable wings spreading through social media.
Here’s the menu if you want to take a look:
Chris Kirschner of The Athletic went to Magic City to try the wings out, and he was impressed:
“They had a perfect amount of crisp, not much breading to make it thick like fried chicken but enough to give the skin a crunchy texture. The meat inside was juicy and yet fully cooked. It pulled right off the bone without much fight. And the sauce. Oh, the sauce. It had a combination of sweet and smoky, with the lemon pepper seasoning giving it some zing. The flavors just explode in your mouth. The wings weren’t swimming in sauce so as to not be too messy. But it was enough to leave you licking your fingers.”
Athlete advocate and brand builder Zach Soskin tweeted a photo of the wings:

New Orleans Pelicans guard Josh Hart hilariously tweeted the viral Yelp.com food review of Magic City’s famous wings:

Williams is the second NBA player to violate league rules for chicken wings. He told fans to simply enjoy the memes that came out of this incident and insists that he was just in and out of his favorite Atlanta establishment.
