A Go Fund Me effort was launched Thursday to reopen Cullinan's Stadium Club 11612 S. Western Ave in Morgan Park - The bar and grill was shut down Dec. 8 by the Illinois Department of Revenue

A Go Fund Me effort was launched Thursday to reopen Cullinan's Stadium Club 11612 S. Western Ave in Morgan Park - The bar and grill was shut down Dec. 8 by the Illinois Department of Revenue.

MORGAN PARK — A GoFundMe effort aimed at reopening Cullinan's Stadium Club in Morgan Park was launched Thursday by neighboring Beverly Records.

John Dreznes' family owns the record store at 11612 S. Western Ave. He claimed responsibility for the online fundraiser titled, "Let's Help Dan Get His Bar Back."

Dreznes said he has no idea how much bar owner Dan Cullinan owes the Illinois Department of Revenue, which shut down the bar and grill Dec. 8. So he randomly set the goal of the campaign at $100,000.

"I haven't talked to Dan about [the fundraiser]. I think he would say 'Don't you dare,'" Dreznes said Thursday ..

Regardless of the bar owner's modesty, Dreznes said he's sympathetic to the plight of the struggling small business owner. For his part, Dreznes committed $500 to the effort and said all proceeds will be handed over to Cullinan — regardless of how much is raised.

Stadium Club "has hosted more charity events than any of us could ever count," Dreznes' fundraising page said. "We have all had a great time hanging out here over the years."

Cullinan said Wednesday a potential partnership meant to bailout the bar fizzled in the 11th hour a couple of weeks ago. Cullinan would not disclose how much he owes in unpaid taxes.

A Beverly resident, Cullinan has owned the bar since 1989. He said state auditors found a discrepancy in his tax filings a couple of years ago.

He had hoped to work out the tax issue through an appeals process but never got the chance. Now Cullinan is worried that his business will further suffer by missing out on revenue from the holiday season.

The fundraiser points to the bar's longtime two-for-one cheeseburger special, and it's throwback approach to the tavern business — favoring light beer over trendy craft concoctions.

"Let's all pay Dan Cullinan for that second cheeseburger and get him back on his feet, so we can raise our macro-brew in a bottle once again at 116th and Western," the fundraiser says.

Dan wouldnt have this issue if he didn't have a problem with the yeyo. Can't tell you how many times I had to give him a little heads up regarding trace booger sugar clinging to his nose after he returned from "taking this garbage out to the dumpster".

Fuck him!!

In order to actually get shut down,you must've ignored many prior notices to comply.If you sit down with the state and draw up a payment plan they NEVER will shut you down.Cullinan obviously thought he was going to continue operating & ignored the state's efforts to collect monies due. So again FUCK HIM!!

Pay your taxes like any other law abiding business. And Fuck your fund-me account.

Rule #1 is:

Don't give money to:

* Drunks
* Drug addicts
* Degenerate gamblers

This guy is obviously a fuckup or he would have solved this problem long ago. Probably a member of one or all of the above groups, and since it's a bar - he probably had to choose between paying the Outfit tax or the State. Outfit breaks your legs, State just shuts you down. Best to pay the former, accept the latter.

But don't fund a fucking penny to this worthless asshole unless you want to just flush your money down the shitter.

Go out to the forest preserves and take a collection from all of the cars that are parked backwards. That is where the clientele is.

What a bunch of pure shit. Open a business go bankrupt and ask for free handouts to exploit the neighborhood. Fuck that bullshit, the fuck can't even mabage a piggy bank and now wants 100K. FUCK U ASSHOLE!!

Free money for a mismanaged owner who probably gambled the little profits away. Can't pay taxes? I sure as hell ain't gonna help your liberal Obama kissing ass when I have my own taxes and debts to pay. Get a real job instead of milking honest people outta their paychecks. You aren't meant to run a business your are meant to work construction so get a REAL job like the rest of us have to do to survive.

Cullinan will have to pay federal and state income tax on any money raised. Do these people understand that?

WTF is this world coming too? A GoFundMe account for a messed up drunk to stay in business so he can steal more money before being shut down again. That is like Macy's asking for handouts for free then throwing lavish parties at the expense of it's "customers". Here is a big FUCK YOU you stupid FUCK!
