RHINELANDER - People in Rhinelander could watch a documentary profiling Wisconsin supper clubs Thursday night.
A Wisconsin native made a documentary profiling Wisconsin supper clubs.
Many of the businesses featured in the movie are from northern Wisconsin.
The Al Gen, White Stag, and The Fireside are just some of those supper clubs.
Wisconsin native, Holly De Ruyter made the documentary.
The screening was held at ArtStart.
"My own interest in exploring the culture that I grew up in, there was a lot of traditions I grew up doing and not really knowing why we did them, like the Friday Fish Fry, or why supper clubs were so big in the state and so I wanted to explore why those traditions existed," De Ruyter said.
The stop in Rhinelander was part of a tour the filmmaker is making through Wisconsin.
The author of a Wisconsin supper club cookbook is also making stops throughout the state.
She says supper club food is unique.
"The food is unique because a lot of it is still from scratch dining, generations old recipes, in all courses, everything from pickled mushrooms for your cocktail to pumpkin cheesecake," says cookbook author Mary Bergin.
They will also make stops in Minocqua and Tomahawk this weekend.
It'll air at the Tomahawk Cinema on Saturday at 4:30 p.m.
It'll air Sunday at Lakeland Union High School at 4 p.m.
