yup, right by hooters.
The big nasty rocked we used to go there all the time, I remember one time I was so hammered I got my hand stuck in the door of my buddies blazer when he closed the door, I didnt even feel it.

Bambo bernies was across the street but I dont remember it too well, by the time I got there I was usually pretty wrecked.




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Yup... A few friends played there back in the day...

I believe there's a website remembering the Whale with pics of patrons from back then...

What was your friend's name? It was my first job at a bar while underage...

We'd close up at 2am and walk over to Neo until they closed up...

Was the restaurant The Belden?

Just taking a trip in the industrial techno time machine...

I recently moved out of Chicago across the border northwise and can't find anything even remotely similar.
My old boyfriend, Kerry, owned Aftermath. We were there all the time in its hey-day. Was just looking online to see if there was anything about the club out there & found this site. Just found out Kerry died car accident. He just died 11-1-2017. So many memories of him & Aftermath. Wish I could find some photos somewhere. Just really sad about this news & looking for anything that might be out there to preserve his memory.
