About

Wisconsin supper clubs have been a dining tradition for generations, but as corporate chains increase, are family owned supper clubs fading away or will they find a resurgence with their unique identities and scenic locations?

The film shows why supper clubs are such a big part of Wisconsin's food culture and the true experience of supper club dining: a brandy old fashioned sweet at the bar, relish trays at the table, huge portions of steaks, seafood and poultry, and the friendly, loyal customers.

Production took place this summer at 15 locations around Wisconsin (Milwaukee, Beloit, Fish Creek, Racine, Hanover, South Range, Arbor Vitae, Lake Delton, Solon Springs, St. Anna, Madison, Mosinee, Chippewa Falls, Milton) resulting in 22 hours of mouth-watering food shots, scenic locations, and interviews with club owners, staff and their happy customers.

Currently the project is in post production and funding is needed to finish up the hour long program (and DVD extras). This funding goes towards the production and post production which includes graphic design, voice over talent, studio time, script writing, background music production, promotion/festival submission and DVD production.
