Winged Fixation: WOW Cafe Talks Super Bowl Food


Louisianans are not shy about cooking for a big game, and on any given Saturday in Baton Rouge, one will see tailgate rigs bigger than most hunting camps. However, with the Saints out of the playoffs and the weather chilly, many New Orleanians are simply ordering out for today's show down. Wings are the most popular Super Bowl food in America, and NoDef got some pointers from Paul Ballard, founder and co-owner WOW Cafe: American Grill and Wingery. 


Steve Gleason to Be Featured in Super Bowl Ad (VIDEO)

Boente’s Office announced this week.


Scott Fujita Retires from NFL -as a New Orleans Saints Player
