Quaker Steak & Lube

Chicken wings fundraiser

Quaker Steak & Lube is introducing a new chicken-wing option — Bangin’ Drums — at a limited-time promotional price with a

fundraiser for music education.

The Bangin’ Drums meal, triple the size of the chain’s Jumbo Wings, costs $7.49 through Sept. 30. For every order, 50 cents (or at least $10,000) will be donated to the Spirit of Harmony Foundation. The music education program is the project of singer-songwriter Todd Rundgren, he of the ’80s hit “Bang the Drum All Day.”

Participating locations nearby include the restaurant at 1411 Kenneth Road, West Manchester Township, and 165 Gateway Drive in Mechanicsburg.

Did you know? Sweet corn season is in full swing, and those golden ears are best eaten the day they’re picked. The longer sweet corn sits, the more the sugars turn to starch and blunt the flavor. For storing up to a week, keep corn in its husk in the fridge.
