Saturday June 11, 2016 at Cobra Lounge
We promised Terry to keep this going, and we’re counting on you to dance your asses off! We’ve been getting together for 21 years to remember and celebrate O’Banion’s, the friends we made there, and how extraordinary that place and that time were.
235 N. Ashland Ave.
(corner of Fulton - just north of Lake St.)
Thanks for all the fun my fellow "Geezer Punks"
As always, I want to thank all the faithful people who continue to show up year after year
and have a great time dancing, drinking, reminiscing and generally just having good clean fun.
I also want to thank all the DJ's who, each and every year, rock our socks off for 5-6 hours.
I also want to thank Suzanne Shelton for all of her hard work to help put this party on.
It could not be done without her.
Please keep thoughts of the late Roseann Kuberski, who thought of this whole thing some 20 years ago.
And remember...never stop telling all your friends about it.
