FIELD OF DREAMS
Philadelphia Eagles guard BRANDON BROOKS, here at Scarpetta, gears up for the 2017–2018 season with stops in the city and at the Shore.
Proudest moment: A tie between being able to come to the great city of Philadelphia with the best fans in football and beating the Cowboys in the last game of the year. Philadelphia is so…: Tightly knit. Philadelphians take great pride in their city and sports teams--along with things that are native to Philly. Famous Philadelphian you most want to have dinner with: Stephen Schwarzman of Blackstone Group. Summer in the city: I usually spend my summer interning. This year I’m an equity options intern for Susquehanna. And I’ll be down the Shore in Sea Isle at my favorite place, the OD. Favorite Philadelphia music act: Boyz II Men and Will Smith. Favorite local hangouts: Ladder 15, U-bahn, Rouge, Scarpetta, Parc, Noto. One thing people would be surprised to know about you: I’m really a what-yousee-is-what-you-get type of guy. Local landmarks: Liberty Bell or Art Museum steps. Favorite Philadelphia athlete: It’s a tie between Brian Dawkins and Allen Iverson because of the passion and intensity they both put into their game. Most-asked question from fans: Have you been to any weddings lately and will you come to mine?
