Sausage King, huh? Let’s see how this goes…
My name is Brandon Briggs – I’m in my early/mid 30’s, work in marketing and have been living in Chicago for nearly 10 years. When I’m done with my long walks on the beach, writing poetry, and knitting homemade sweaters for loved ones, you can find me on the golf course or the lakeshore path running, catching my favorite DJs at summer music festivals, and enjoying the company of my amazing friends in the city – from Wrigley to River North.
Born and raised in Michigan (Go BLUE!), I now am proud to call the Windy City home and absolutely LOVE the everything about it…every neighborhood (so much good food!), every season (rain, snow, wind, shine, heat/humidity – sometimes all in one day), and all the diverse people and experiences it has to offer.
Ok, enough about me…now let’s focus on you! I’d love to be the next Sausage King of Chicago and would be more than honored to don the throne for Chi Town. Past “kings” have left large shoes to fill (trust me, those were some big ‘sausages’), but as a city that has made everything from Polish to Kielbasa its own – you deserve a King who will withhold the duties of meat’s most prestigious position with the utmost respect, humility and loyalty that these elite men of year’s past represented.
With many close ties to “true heroes” within my circle of family and close friends – everything from Marines, Army, police officers, firemen, corrections officers, SWAT team members, etc. – I also could not be more honored, driven and humbled to put these efforts behind helping raise awareness, donations and support for an amazing cause such as the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP). Because while being hailed the “King of Sausage” for this fine city would be flippin’ awesome, these service men and women are the real KINGS who deserve all the support and resources possible to make sure they (and their families) are taken care of each and every day. Let’s make sure to all do our part…
So, let’s give this a shot and see where it takes us – together. If the worse that can happen is we drink some beers, enjoy the city’s finest sausage, and raise a bunch of money for a great cause and change some lives, then I think we will ALL be just fine.
Thank you for your support…and see you on the throne!
