BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — For the first time in 12 years, the National Buffalo Chicken Wing Festival has offered a meatless alternative.

Thousands of chicken wing lovers flocked to the poultry mecca of western New York on Saturday to experience the latest and greatest in wings — including hummus dip and breaded green beans flavored like the real thing.

Local chef Steven Binks tells The Buffalo News the trick is in getting the right mix of Frank's Original RedHot and gorgonzola cheese.

The two-day festival features more than 130 different styles of wings, live music and wing-eating contests.

Event founder Drew Cerza said 40 tons of wings will be served up by two dozen restaurants from across the country.

Among the eateries is Buffalo's Anchor Bar, considered the birthplace of Buffalo-style chicken wings.

WASHINGTON (AP) — A military hearing for three former Navy football players accused of sexual assault is set to resume after the alleged victim was given a day to rest.

Testimony was scheduled to continue Sunday morning at the Washington Navy Yard.

The hearing is being held to determine whether the three U.S. Naval Academy midshipmen will be court-martialed on the charges. It was postponed Saturday because the alleged victim said she was too fatigued to testify after a week of difficult cross-examination.

The woman, who is now a senior at the academy, allegedly was sexually assaulted at an April 2012 party after a night of heavy drinking. She says she doesn't remember having sex with the men.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — When traffic flows across the new stretch of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge for the first time, it will do so nearly a quarter-century after a deadly earthquake during the 1989 World Series collapsed two 50-foot sections of the old structure.

The 6.9-magnitude Loma Prieta quake hit just as millions tuned in to watch Game 3 of the "Bay Bridge World Series" between the Oakland Athletics and San Francisco Giants, killing 63 people and causing billions in damage.

The Bay Bridge failure prompted one of the costliest public works projects in state history.

Next week, the $6.4 billion project finally opens to traffic after decades of political bickering, engineering challenges and billions in cost overruns. The new bridge is scheduled to open by 5 a.m. Tuesday at the latest.
