Barback Games; More Wings Over

THEATRE DISTRICT - Fernet-Branca's Barback Games will take place at the Royale next Tuesday, pitting Boston barbacks against each other in a competition that apparently includes running through tires, carrying kegs, and pouring lots of beer. The winner goes on to compete at the national level in San Francisco. Industry judges include Luke O'Neil, Tiffani Faison, and Jamie Bissonnette. [YouTube]

BACK BAY - A proposed $225m project would put 33 stories of hotel rooms and condominiums near Copley Square. The building would also have multiple "neighborhood-focused" restaurants. Pending approval, construction could start as early as next fall. [BG]

ARLINGTON - The Wings Over wing chain is expanding to Arlington and Boston. The company posted on Craigslist today seeking managers for the two new locations, which will add to the seven currently open in Massachusetts (along with numerous locations in twelve other states). [CL]
