When: Apr 20
From: 6:30 pm – 10:30 pm
Join us for a unique evening as we pay tribute to the Old Fashioned Wisconsin Supper Club.
Supper club restaurants were the hot dining trend in the mid twentieth century. They provided a place for people to spend their evenings enjoying cocktails, home-cooked, high-quality food and entertainment. Documentary filmmaker, Holly DeRuyter, hosts Lake Lawn Resort’s Supper Club experience. She presents her film, “Old Fashioned: The Story of the Wisconsin Supper Club”, which takes you into this unique Wisconsin institution. Lake Lawn Resort will present the ambience and flavors of a true Wisconsin Supper Club, beginning with the signature Old Fashioned Cocktail, traditional relish trays, entrees, and dessert.
Holly will be accompanied by Mary Bergin, author of Wisconsin Supper Club Cookbook.
