Mmmmm… Supper clubs…

Watch Wisconsin Supper Clubs at 8 p.m. Monday, May 9 on Wisconsin Public Television.

Talk about a delicious show to watch! This program will have you licking your lips and raiding the refrigerator in search of the detectable Wisconsin fare that you’ll see on your TV screen. Big steaks. Relish trays. Lobster tails. And, as much fried fish as you can imagine. It’s all part of the Supper Club tradition.

Feel inspired to visit some of the great restaurants that are featured in the program? The show’s producers have links to each of them — from The Liberty Inn in Beloit to Marty’s Place North in Arbor Vitae (one of my favorites) — on their web site.
