East Coast Wings & Grill Grand Opening to Honor Local Heroes

East Coast Wings & Grill will celebrate its Mount Pleasant location grand opening on Tuesday, January 14, with an all-day open house featuring appetizer, dessert, and drink specials, and attractions for kids. The event calls on Mount Pleasant to celebrate the post-holiday blues, especially men and women in blue, as the party’s theme honors service members in the local community, including firefighters, police officers, and ambulance and rescue team members.

Concurrent with the open house, an invitation-only event from 4–6 p.m. will include a ribbon cutting ceremony, wing eating contest, and for the especially brave, the Insanity Wing Challenge. East Coast Wings & Grill’s trademark Insanity Wing has a sauce measuring over 2 million scoville units, and customers must sign a waiver before ordering.

To further honor local heroes, Mount Pleasant East Coast Wings & Grill is earmarking a percentage of the grand opening’s proceeds to Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR) for Special Olympics, a charitable organization dedicated to providing sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. The Mount Pleasant Police Department works very closely with Law Enforcement Torch Run and Special Olympics athletes.

The restaurant is located near the Mount Pleasant Towne Center, at 1909 Highway 17 North, and features 75 flavors of wings in nine levels of heat intensities, and the six-page menu incorporates casual dining fare including burgers, salads, sandwiches, and more.
