Eating and dancing at the 'Lakeside Supper Club' (Rebroadcast)
Supper clubs burst onto the scene in America in the 1930s. Back then, they were places where you could get a meal and dance.
They were also places you could drink. The end of prohibition made a lot of these clubs very popular.
They are still a good night out. But, over time, many have closed or gone out of business. However, in the Midwest, supper clubs remain a mainstay.
One fictional venue, set in northern Minnesota, is the stage for a new book by J. Ryan Stradal.
He joins us to talk about his latest novel, ‘Saturday Night at the Lakeside Supper Club.’
