Joe Dean is cooking up wings for carryout the next two weekends at Club Garibaldi.

On the fly: 6 great places to get wings to-go

The coronavirus pandemic has changed our everyday life, but it doesn't need to change who we are. So, in addition to our ongoing coverage of the coronavirus, OnMilwaukee will continue to report on cool, fun, inspiring and strange stories from our city and beyond. Stay safe, stay healthy, stay informed and stay joyful. We're all in this together. #InThisTogetherMKE

One of the things I've missed most about social distancing is my monthly wing night with a friend.

Of course, the wings are only part of that experience, which also comes with sides of beer, camaraderie and socializing. But since the socializing is out, the wings and beer at home will have to do for now.

With that in mind, here are some places around town where you can still get top-notch wings via carryout.

Club Garibaldi
2501 S. Superior St., (414) 483-6335

Club Garibaldi has been completely closed during the Safer at Home shutdown, but it is coming back online to sell carryout wings this weekend and next (April 11-12, 18-19), from noon until 5 p.m. You can call in your order beginning at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday and they'll tell you when you should swing by – with cash only, as the credit card/ATM processing machine is on hiatus during the shutdown at G-Ball – to grab your order.

If the weekends go smoothly, owner Joe Dean will extend the carryout wings plan into the future. Please remember, Garibaldi is doing only wings and accepting only cash.

Leff's Lucky Town
7208 W. State St., Wauwatosa, (414) 258-9886

While you can't enjoy the great patio as the weather wises up, you can be thankful that Leff's is offering it full menu – wings included – for carry-out and curbside pick-up every day from 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Points East Pub
1501 N. Jackson St., (414) 277-0122

Points East – which makes Milwaukee's best wings, according to OnMilwaukee readers – has those wings for you for curbside pick-up weekdays, from noon to 9:45 p.m. Call ahead to place your order.

Spitfire's on State
5018 W. State St., (414) 777-5060

Monday is 75-cent wing night from 3 until 10 p.m. at Spitfire's, even when it's only open for curbside pickup. Order in fives or sixes and remember to specify your sauce when you call.

On its Facebook page, Spitfire's says, tantalizingly "Never know we may bring it back for curbside pickup on Wednesday with that wing night."

Steny's Tavern
800 S. 2nd St., (414) 672-7139

For ace wings in the Walker's Point area, hit up Steny's which has its entire menu available for curbside pick-up daily from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. While you're there, grab some bloodys to go, too.

8001 W. Greenfield Ave., West Allis, (414) 258-9110

If you can't decide between great wings and great fried chicken, order online at TomKens, which is open for carry-out daily from 3 to 9 p.m., and enjoy them both.
