Room is excited to honor local dining traditions by presenting author and photographer Ron Faiola, reading from his beautiful new book Wisconsin Supper Clubs!

Wisconsin Supper Clubs profiles more than 50 establishments that are found throughout the state. Through interviews with proprietors and loyal customers, author Ron Faiola takes readers deep into the world of this authentic upper Midwestern experience. Faiola also took the book’s full-color photographs, which highlight each club’s distinctive character, owners, and classic dishes, as well as the settings in which the different clubs can be found.

The book is organized geographically, which makes for easy browsing for those planning a trip. Each chapter focuses on one supper club, detailing its history and the family or families involved in running it. Faiola describes the customs and traditions of each, details its particular culinary specialties, and concludes each section with “My Take,” where he recounts his own experience at each supper club.

Ron Faiola is a filmmaker and author who has produced and directed numerous critically acclaimed documentaries, such as Wisconsin Supper Clubs and Fish Fry Night Milwaukee. He is the president and founder of Push Button Gadget, Inc., which has been specializing in audiovisual and business theater production for nearly 20 years.
