THE LOCALE | Planet Wings

THE LOWDOWN | It's been a pizzeria and a Mexican grill, and now the end unit of a strip mall across from Coastal Grand Mall is a wing joint. Planet Wings opened its doors at the first of October, and that's where we went for happy hour this week.

Planet Wings took over the location on Pine Island Road that once housed Qdoba Mexican Grill and later La Pizza. It has a small black granite bar in the back corner with about a dozen bar stools. You can also sit at tables and booths throughout the restaurant or at tables on the outdoor patio. There are TVs in every direction so you can watch football. The establishment does have sports packages so you should be able to tune into whichever game you want to watch. Smoking is permitted outside only.

Planet Wings is a chain that started in New York, and has since branched out to several states including this location in the Palmetto State. Not only may New Yorkers head to the familiar Planet Wings, but the new-to-the-area locale is likely to capture the attention of any wing or beer fan. Wing-lovers should be happy because there are 24 different types of wing flavors. Beer-lovers should be happy because there are 24 types of bottled beer. That's 576 combinations of bottled beer and wings. To add more to the mix, you can also drink draft beer or wine.

Speaking of drinking, this place is quite affordable during happy hour, which runs from 4 to 7 p.m. daily. Drink specials include $2 domestic bottles, $2.50 import bottles and $2.50 draft beers. You can also get $4 pitchers and $1 PBR (Pabst Blue Ribbon) during happy hour, and appetizers are half-price.
