Hungry for History: “The Wisconsin Supper Clubs Story” with Ron Faiola

November 14 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm


Branch Station, 8112 Village Drive Whitelaw, WI

Sponsored by The Manitowoc County Historical Society

Ron Faiola has been called “Wisconsin’s legacy filmmaker” and a “supper club guru.”  His best selling book series, Wisconsin Supper Clubs: An Old Fashioned Experience (2013), and Wisconsin Supper Clubs: Another Round (2016), helped ignite supper club fever in the Badger State.  He was awarded a gold medal from the Midwest Independent Publishers Association for his third book, The Wisconsin Supper Clubs Story: An Illustrated History, With Relish (2021). His recently released fourth book, Wisconsin Supper Clubs Second Edition, is an expanded and updated version of his first book.

Faiola’s critically acclaimed documentary films have appeared on PBS stations nationwide and he has earned mentions in the New York Times, Chicago Tribune, USA Today and Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. He has done countless interviews with various media personalities including WGN’s Rick Kogan, Milk Street’s Christopher Kimball and travel expert Rudy Maxa.

Faiola (under the stage name of Ron Ford) was the drummer and former founding member of the Milwaukee punk rock band Couch Flambeau.  He resides in a “Greendale Original” in the historic Village of Greendale, Wisconsin.  For a list of over 250 supper clubs in Wisconsin, visit his website: WisconsinSupperClubs.com.
