Wisconsin Supper Clubs: Another Round

Now Available - May 2016

Wisconsin Supper Clubs: Another Round, a sequel to author/photographer Ron Faiola's wildly popular first book on the topic (now in its seventh printing), gives readers a peek inside 50 additional clubs from across the Badger State.

Through Faiola's work on the Wisconsin Supper Clubs books and documentary, Faiola has earned the reputation as Wisconsin's original and preeminent supper club scholar.

Traveling from the Northwoods to Beloit, Faiola documents some of the most exceptional and long-lived restaurants that embrace the decades-old supper club tradition. These are family-owned establishments that believe in old-fashioned hospitality, slow-paced dining, and good scratch cooking.

Wisconsin Supper Clubs: Another Round is a new, intimate look at this unique American tradition, one that invites supper club enthusiasts and newcomers alike to enjoy a second helping of everything that made Wisconsin Supper Clubs such a hit.

Available at local bookstores, Barnes & Noble, Book World, Costco and online at Amazon.com
