5 Things That Make A Supper Club Unique From A Restaurant?

As I was emceeing the Upper Lakes Food Show this week I met a vendor that was offering tasting samples of salad dressings and sauces.  I told him that I loved the kind of blue cheese dressing that you can usually only find at supper clubs.  That spurred a conversation about what a restaurant should have to be considered a supper club.

Get A Sneak Peek Of Duluth’s Newest Gastropub, The Blind Pig [VIDEO]

I was really bummed when I heard that Tycoon's Restaurant was closing.  I loved their Chicken Florentine and Hummus Platter.  I have lots of great memories at Tycoon's.  The history of this building is amazing, it's the old City Hall.  My daughter celebrated her 18th birthday in the Treasury Room upstairs and when I was coach of the Denfeld Cheerleaders we held our banquet in the Council Chambers.  I plan on continuing to make memories in this historic building with it's new endeavor, the opening of a gastropub called, The Blind Pig.

What Is The Reason More Restaurants Don’t Serve Squash?

I love squash.  There, I said it, some people cringe, some love it with me.  I think squash has been getting shove to the side and I don't understand why.  I've been baking squash and bringing it for lunch because I love it, my husband does not.  However, we are still able to find a happy medium and co-exist.  I'm beginning to feel like squash is treated like liver and onions (which btw, I don't like).  You rarely see that on menus, but squash is easy to make, keep and serve.  Why don't more restaurants serve it?

Obama’s News Taxes Expected To Hurt The Restaurant Industry In A Major Way

Observers close to the food and restaurant industry are watching their bottom line shrink, with profits expected to be lost due to new taxes that went into effect on January 1st.  With Obamacare putting a halt to hiring and forcing some managers to cut staff and hours, the industry was already forecasting a pale 2013.  But now with the reversal of the payroll tax holiday that eats an additional 2% from employees take-home check, the companies and supervisors that manage the nations biggest restaurant chains are fearful for what that will mean for their bottom line.  Rising gas prices don't help, either.
