Trying to find where this corner bar was located (circa 1968-73) and something about its history. Might have been on Brady St or somewhere else nearby on the East Side. Anyone remember it?

thanks for the info so far. The hunt is always the best part. The pencil lists 2 locations of 1711 W. Mitchell, phone MI 5-7108 and 1023 W. Mitchell, phone OR 2-0837. It's fun just saying the old phone numbers. Also the Antkowski article was a great read and very informative.

I remember SouthSide Sausage, but I don`t recall two locations on Mitchell street.

There was also a sausage shop on Lincoln ave.. I think it was between 13th and 14th street, on the southside of Lincoln ave.

If anyone wants to try some great sausage and meat now, try A J DELI on 12th and Lincoln ave. Tongue It will take you back to the good old days. Wink

Found a little info from 1977 (attached). Opened in 1917, closed in 1983. Do a Google search on Roman Antkowski (founder) for the complete story.

I have found an advertising bullet pencil from the South Side Sausage Co. in a box of goodies from my father in laws estate. It lists two locations on Mitchell St. I can't find any information on this business. I wonder if anyone remembers anything about it like, when it was in business, or what types of sausage they made and how good it was. I'm guessing from what I know of my father in laws history that it may be from the late 50's or early sixties. Post what you can or e-mail me at daveirek@btc-bci.com. Thanks for your help. Dave

There was a Polish Hall on 11th or 12th and Arthur .
 My Mom had her wedding shower there in the 1940`s !! But, I don`t think that`s the one you`re thinking of.

There was also one on 35th and Lincoln ave. It`s still there, but I think the hall is no longer used.

There were ton`s of bars with attached halls back then. Lots of good times were had in those halls. Grin

Even Jerry`s Squirrel Cage on 6th and Arthur had a small hall in the basement. Shocked

Back then , a barrel of Pabst Blue Ribbon, some polish sausage, and rye bread, and you had yourself a feast and party to remember! Wink

The Cleveland Arcade was on 16th & Cleveland and was a bowling alley/hall. One of my high school friends lived next door to it!

 Way to jog my memory!

 The VFW Post is not the one I am referring to. This was a Polish organization and was on 10th street. The nickname of the bar was "The Polish Club" The address would have been between Mitchell and Lapham on 10th. The Knutson post was very well known and on Lapham.

 I dont remember the place on 13th and Cleveland but do remember a place on 6th and Manitoba.

 Thanks, Tim

I think that might have been the VFW Post 2304  Sgt. Leslie T. Knutson Post . I went to a couple of weddings there. I even have a old picture of me standing out in front of it!  Shocked

You were pretty close to some halls living on 15th and Manitoba. Smiley

 I think there was one on 16th and Cleveland, and there was The Cleveland Ballroom around 12th and Cleveland.

There was also a good one on 6th and Manitoba! Wink

 Hey Roadsnakes. It is shame there are so few replies and posts here. This could be a great forum.

 As for halls, I was raised on 15th and Mantoba and none really come to mind. However, my father ran the Woolworths on 10th and Mitchell. The guys at Woolworth and Gimbels had a favorite watering hole in back of the stores. It was a Polish Amvet type home and hall. They had a bar in the basement that was open to the pubilc and a hall for rent on the main floor. This would have been on 10th street between Lapham and Mitchell. I know this place was kicking into the early 90's.
