Abe Froman Furious Over Mysterious Credit Card Charge From Upscale Chicago Restaurant

Abe Froman, known throughout the Chicago-land area as the "Sausage King," is still fuming about an unpaid tab at the French Restaurant, Chez Quiz, which he was billed for over twenty years ago.

However, Froman claims he was unable to get a table at the upscale eatery and thus the charge is fraudulent.

Said the head of the midwest's sausage empire regarding the meal in question: "Not only could I not get a table - even though I had a reservation, mind you - but the maitre d' was extremely snooty and had the gall to say I was an impostor."

After being turned away, Froman reportedly left the restaurant, only to get in get caught in traffic caused by an unexpected parade and a city-wide choreographed dance to "Twist and Shout."

"It was an awful day overall," recalled Froman. "The restaurant, that random parade...I also think the employees at the parking lot drove my car. So you can imagine how upset I was when I received the bill from Chez Quiz. Whoever used my name ran up quite a tab. It seems that they also charged them for extra ice for them to chew."

Froman added that he will finally fight the charge. The case has been handed over to Sgt. Peterson of the Chicago police.
