Ron Faiola's Wisconsin Supper Clubs: An Old Fashioned Experience

My mum is a frequent visitor from England (according to her, 40 times to Chicago in the past 25 years). Finding new and exciting excursions is a challenge; a couple of years ago, we jaunted up to Milwaukee's Times Cinema to see the premiere of filmmaker Ron Faiola's Fish Fry Night Milwaukee. Being English and having a penchant for the British institution of fish-and-chips it was a very worthwhile and salivating road trip. Faiola's latest offering is even tastier; Wisconsin Supper Clubs: An Old Fashioned Experience (like Fish Fry, available on DVD) is a mouthwatering tour of rarefied restaurants from another era that has me thinking of excursions northward. [Cheap Trick drummer] Bun E. Carlos's culinary review of the Liberty Inn in Beloit is further endorsement of the film's credibility in documenting the culture of these comestible time capsules. Mum's passport will be stamped Beloit next visit.
