Take a new look at the Dreamland Supper Club through the eyes of author and filmmaker Ron Faiola. Dreamland, located in South Range, is one of 50 supper clubs statewide that made the pages of Faiola’s new book, “Wisconsin Supper Clubs: An Old Fashioned Experience.” The author will be signing copies of the book from 6-8 p.m. tonight at Dreamland, 4368 County Road E.
Supper clubs appeal to diners because they provide scenic locations, unique atmospheres and a level of service and quality of experience that a family-run place can provide. Other nearby establishment that made it into the pages of the book include The Steak Pit in Washburn and The Ranch in Hayward. Faiola is an award-winning filmmaker who directed and produced the documentary “Wisconsin Supper Clubs.” The book, an extension of the film, has already been reprinted a number of times since it came out in April. Demand for it has skyrocketed, according to Zach Rudin with Agate Publishing.
This is a coffee table book that does more than look pretty, he said. It is also an excellent resource to bring on a trip so you can find the nearest supper club.
“This book has a huge amount of utility,” Rudin said, and it gives pictures, history and an expert opinion that people won’t get from an online review. The book has an old-fashioned appeal and gives a definitive profile of each of the supper clubs featured.
“If the subject interests you, slow-dining, the supper club culture, it’s a must-have,” Rudin said.
For more information on the book, drop by Dreamland tonight from 6-8 p.m. or check for it online through Agate Publishing, http://www.agatepublishing.com, or various bookseller sites.
