The Quincy Elks Lodge is hosting a chicken wing cook-off — with prizes for the winners — in addition to free appetizers and other food. Doors at the Lodge on East Main Street open at noon.
And, of course, with the big screen televisions the Main Street Sports Bar & Lounge in Quincy is having a Super Bowl party. Their bountiful food buffet at game time will include appetizers, mac and cheese, beans, salad and a 10 ft. sandwich (prepared by The Knook). Doors open at noon.
