I don't remember either of those, but I do remember a place called the "Polka Club," somewhere on Western Ave., maybe around 66th or so. They had a sign in the window that read, naturally enough, "Polka Club," with the words "Hop Czyk Czyk" underneath, which I always thought was something that people yelled when polkaing. There may have been a name of the owner along with Polka Club on the sign, and neon sign, by the way. They later moved to 60th and Central, I beleive, which had been a tavern called "The Dog House."
