Dusek’s and Punch House One Year Anniversary Party


Save the date! Dusek’s and Punch House are headed towards their first birthday and we’re throwing a party to celebrate!

After 52 weeks of Ordinary’s, punch bowls, and some truly unforgettable performances, we’re still in business. “Time files” may seem like a trite observation, but in this case, it couldn’t ring more true. We’ve seen our dream become a reality and we think this is cause for a celebration. 

On Sunday October 12th at 8pm, to celebrate this one-year anniversary, we’ll be hosting a building-wide Customer Appreciation shindig that may just have ol’ Mr. Dusek spinning in his digs.

Every level of the property will participate, showcasing what they do best. Thalia will be hosting a FREE show featuring old friends, LA punk band NO AGE, whose rise to fame saw them playing in Chicago at the Empty Bottle and smaller venues like it. Dusek’s will be dishing out our Anniversary Ordinary, a Kentucky Fried Lobster paired with a specialty beer from our friends and Pilsen’s own Moody Tongue Brewing.

After the performance, we’re taking the party down to our basement bar, Punch House. There we will keep the party going with special guest deejays JOHN MORK (NBD Music Company) and SAMONE (Changes) and serve up our sparkling anniversary punch to celebrate our Year One. And if that’s not enough, we’ll also be unveiling the Punch House Fondue Club that very evening.

By the end of the night, you can bet that our pal Johnny Dusek will be dancing in his tomb! We can only hope…
