CHICAGO -- Outside Paulina Meat Market, the line was eerily familiar to some – especially when you cross the street, and hear a familiar voice.
More than seven months since he closed up his popular restaurant came a one-day event reuniting the sultan of Chicago sausage, Hot Doug himself, with those who made him famous.
The sausages were a sampling of his all-time hits, all of them made by Paulina Meat Market on this special day.
For those who came, it was nothing short of delicious --- from the old regulars, to those who just got their first bite.
For Doug, the last eight months was a good break. After 14 years of sausage, he’s still waiting on the next chapter.
But if there’s a testament to how well done that business was, it rested in the eyes, and the mouths, of those who came.
