What in the world is a supper club? You see these things everywhere and you wonder. You do not have to buy a membership. It is open to the public, right? Well, I do not have more than ten experiences in a supper club, but with those few experiences, I can say that to me it means a restaurant that has a pretty tasty menu of steaks and seafood with your choice of potato and bread with copious amounts of butter. I can say that it means a restaurant whose wood is as darkly stained as its carpet. * Neither has been updated in 30 years.
A. W. informs us that his grandparents went to the supper club at 6:00 p.m. sharp every Saturday evening and if you were not in the car at 6:00 p.m., you were not going to the supper club. At the supper club, they drank cocktails at the bar for some time and told stories. They ate a meal with all of their fellow supper clubbers and talked a lot more.
* proper thanks to M. G. for an apt simile.
Update: we visited the Silvercryst Supper Club in Wautoma recently and that’s what got me thinking on this subject. I ordered the sirloin and can agree with their advertisements. They have great steak.
