“I never laugh until I’ve had my coffee,” Hollywood legend Clark Gable once said. Thankfully, Saturday, September 29, is National Coffee Day, and there are enough deals to keep you caffeinated and laughing all day long.
What was one of humanity’s greatest discoveries? You may say electricity, fire or even penicillin but I say nay.
No, the greatest thing is the chicken wing. A delicious and versatile food that makes a great addition to any dance, kickback gathering, movie night, Super Bowl viewing, bingo game, Tupperware party or baby shower. The chicken wing is a sacred thing of limitless possibilities. It can be tossed, rubbed, smoked, fired, grilled, glazed, deboned, spicy or cool, sour or sweet.
In honor of National Chicken Wing Day this Sunday, PHOENIX has curated the best deals and specials at Valley restaurants. Don't wing it, let us show you the way.

But now you DO have another option -- several in fact! I discovered the communal table concept when my boyfriend was stranded in Chicago on my birthday. New to town, I didn’t want to dine alone. After ditching an angry stranger at the bar, I moved over to the only open seat at Houston’s communal table. Not only did my table gang toast me over martinis, they sang happy birthday. One fellow diner even picked up the tab for everyone!
Here are just a handful of the communal tables in and around Phoenix. I can’t guarantee you’ll get a free meal, but you may make some great new social and business connections.
See my communal dining etiquette tips at the end of the list, too!

Be careful what you say around egg whites. Everyone knows they can’t take a yolk.
Why were the eggs running? Because they were afraid of being beaten!

Our round-up of the best (half) dozen egg creations (and deals) in Phoenix:
