Houston-area fans named Dwight also receive free wings now through July 14

RICHARDSON, Texas - Just because your name is Dwight Howard doesn't mean you have a $20 million basketball contract. But, if you live in Houston, you can score some free wings.

To celebrate Dwight Howard's arrival in Houston, Wingstop is offering Dwight Howard free wings, and anyone named Dwight a free 8-piece wing combo now through Sunday, July 14. To receive the complimentary meal, guests will need a driver's license or other form of identification.

"This is our way of celebrating a huge, exciting moment in Houston sports history," said Khoa Ngo, who owns several Wingstop locations in the Houston area. "Not only are we offering Dwight Howard free wings as a welcome to Houston, but we're inviting any fan named Dwight to join us."
