Help with margaritas and buffalo wings

I've googled.  I am getting info that is so different so I wanted to know what you all though.

How many cals for a buffalo wing?  Some places say 50 cals, which I find hard to believe.  Others say 150.  Huh?

Margaritas.  Let's say it's on the rocks.  Imagine the margaritas at El Torito in the short glass, the regular flavor.  Cals?  Would you say that that's about 8 ounces?  Sparkpeople says that it's 160 cals for 8 ounces.  Think that's about right?

I'm just trying to estimate my dinner.  We're going to Mexican food tonight at our favorite local spot Tijuana Gillies. 

Ole!

    It's mostly the mixer that racks up the calories. Google " bethany frankel skinny margarita" and see if you can live with that as a substitute.

    That sounds about right, if not more! The mix is PURE sugar. I don't even want to think about the blended mango ones we love. Buffalo wings vary because some people (most) fry them, while a few places bake them.

  • I love Bethenny's Skinny Marg!  The place we're going for HH has regular margs though, and for $3.50 I don't want to get too demanding.  =/

  • Shots are the answer to (all) your problems!

     

  • I'd suggest you bring your water bottle. Save the $ and the calories :-)
