We believe that a good time, family time, and great food can all happen at the same place. That’s why we opened the first Wings location in 2001, to create a restaurant where everyone can have a good time and a great meal. Our recipe is simple: create a casual atmosphere where everyone feels welcome, make award-winning food, and serve it at an affordable price. When all of those things come together, we call it Fun Dining. Why Wings? While we pride ourselves on the quality of all of our menu items, our Wings are our passion. They may be the most fun food in the world. They get people talking, sharing and comparing. Everyone has a favourite wing flavour, there's always something new to try and, of course, they taste amazing. Each wing is always fresh, never frozen and is hand rolled before being cooked according to our time-honored recipe, and then coated in any one of our 25 original flavours.
My name is Megan Bernard, and I am a Kelowna based artist and art teacher. I graduated from UBCO with a BFA in painting in 2010, and also have a diploma from the Kootenay School of the Arts Cooperative in clay and design. I work in all kinds of mediums, but painting is one of my huge passions – from abstract to landscape and portraiture. And when I have a chance to dabble in clay, I happily get into it up to my elbows! I grew up in Nelson, BC, and landed in Kelowna about twelve years ago. Living in such beautifully inspiring places has undoubtedly influenced my work. I have a home studio in quiet, wooded corner of Kelowna where I find daily inspiration from the peaceful spaces in my garden and the woods around my studio, not to mention my two rambunctious little boys zipping around! Teaching has always been something I greatly value and enjoy having the opportunity to do. I have been teaching for about ten years in various capacities, including having taught pottery classes, art classes at the Kelowna Art Gallery, and kids’ classes out of my home studio. I love the social aspect of it, and watching a learning artist light up with excitement and amazement as their ideas come to life is a wonderful thing to be a part of. We are all creative in varying ways, and being involved in the creative process with others is a fabulous privilege that I deeply value.
