web research results Sally's Stage was located on the East side of Western Avenue about a half block south of Devon. It probably closed 20 years ago and the site may now be a Middle Eastern or Indian restaurant. It had a huge pipe organ. Accd to http://www.acorntheater.com/prod2011211111.htm, the organist was: "Highly accomplished theater organist, Don Springer, plays music from the 1920's - 40's including those sweet and happy toe-tapping melodies everyone enjoys. He is the former organist in residence at the Hinsdale Theater in Hinsdale IL and played the Barton Theater Pipe Organ for years as the senior organist at the unconventional and wildly popular Sally's Stage in Chicago, IL during the 1980's." Sally's was owned by a guy named Joe Bortz. He purchased the building that housed Sally's Ribs up on Western Ave. and turned it into Sally's Stage. Accd to some "a cathedral of convoluted bad taste bringing together roller skating singing waiters, a huge theatrical pipe organ and some of the most mediocre pan pizza ever tasted, all in one cavernous room." It also had a mechanical bull. Joe also owned and founded the Dr. Jazz Ice Cream parlors on Montrose and in Evanston.
