Hotdish Heaven

The wild, wild Midwest

David Hoekstra went looking for the soul of the Midwest and found it: in supper clubs. Old, new, fancy, silly—they’re all here in The Supper Club Book, an homage to those sacred spots which Garrison Keillor, in his foreword, proclaims are our “right in a free country.” That, and the perfect Old Fashioned. 

Andy Sturdevant arrived in Minneapolis and ate his first two meals—dinner and the following breakfast—at Matt’s Bar. The artist/wordsmith has been documenting offbeat local culture ever since, the highlights of which he reflects on in this collection of essays: Potluck Supper with Meeting to Follow.
