Get a table
Supper clubs can be busy places, especially on a Friday or Saturday night. If you can, arrive early. Put your name in and order a drink at the bar. Consider the classic Wisconsin beverage–the Old Fashioned. Sour or sweet, olives or fruit? The choice is yours. Or, just ask the bartender to make it a classic. You won’t be disappointed.
Consider your choices
When you sit and browse the menu, you’ll be confronted with some difficult choices. Fish fry? Prime rib? Ribs? Steak? There are so many options and they are all very, very good. Whatever you order, be sure to bring an appetite: the portions will be substantial.
When the server asks, have your answer ready: yes, you do want to see the dessert menu! Undoubtedly, there will be a slice of something heavenly with your name on it, but you may want to consider a treat served in a glass. Is there any better way to end a meal than an ice cream drink? Go for the grasshopper!
