What is a supper club?

Supper clubs are restaurant establishments doubling as social clubs. These social clubs were trendy in the 1920s during prohibition and most likely started in Paris before that. These were often run illegally and some literally, underground often hidden away behind grocery stores or soda shops. In order to enter one of these places you needed to know a password or perform a special knock. Though lots of people went to supper clubs to obtain booze these places weren’t just all about the booze, they provided a space where people could let loose and be themselves.

In today’s time, supper clubs are still around especially, in the Midwest and there are a few scattered throughout America. These modern-day supper clubs are now legal restaurant establishments. Out of the prohibition legacy, temporary pop-up restaurants are showing up all over the world providing unique dining experiences in underutilized spaces like warehouses or on the beach on sunny warm days.

I too loved the idea of having a social club where you can hang out, eat, and socialize. Add in a little whimsy, a sprinkle of magic and mysticism, then voila! you have the Whimsy Dining Experience.

What is the Whimsy Dining Experience?

It is an immersive adventure through food designed to encourage people to hang out, explore, relax, and have fun during a tasty meal. Dress-up may be involved if you so choose, and a themed activity is there to help create immersive magic and to provide icebreakers for fun and socialization. Each Whimsy Experience is curated to provide a different kind of dining experience that’s not usually available in the usual settings. It can be magical, fantastical, and wonderfully mad depending on the theme.

Is it like catering?

Not exactly. Catering constitutes making food in one location in an offsite kitchen and transporting it to another location to be served.

I’m not fond of this process myself. I find the food quality can degrade making meals in this fashion, and it depends on the food you prepare. Foods that can stand up to travel and keep their quality are soups, stews, and extra saucy dishes, some of these are even better when resting in the pan. However, these can provide a trying-to-keep-it-from-spilling challenge. Meats and roasts that need time to rest are good for travel. Foods that don’t need as much time and temperature like baked goods are also good on the go.

Where do you do this? / What’s the address?

I usually host suppers at a venue called Flicker and Fir Farm on 1465 SE Alexander Ave, Corvallis, OR.

How much?

I generally charge $55 a person. This includes the three-course supper, mocktails, tea, or other non-alcoholic drinks, and a fun-themed activity to do along with the meal and my labor.

1. Online through this website

4. Text/call at 971-808-1105

What do you accept for payment?

I accept cash, check, cards, Venmo, PayPal, Kuto, and Tap.

Can I Wear a Costume?

You most definitely can wear a costume for the themed supper! We love playing dress up at Whimsy Supper Club.

Do I have to Wear a Costume?

No, it is not a requirement, it is just strongly encouraged because it is so much fun. You can even just wear a fancy hat if that’s your comfort level or come as you do in your everyday outfit.

Is there parking at Flicker and Fir?

Yes, there is parking, but it is limited. It is best to carpool with your group, ride your bike, or walk if you’re in the neighborhood. During a private supper event you can park along the street at Alexander Ave or you can park by the northern side of the leaning barn up the gravel road.

What are the activities during the meal?

Whimsy diners get to play a game or do a themed dependent activity during the meal. These activities are fun ways to socialize with your group. Below is a list of the themes and corresponding activities.

PUCK’S PIXIE PARTY – Pixie Toss and Dance Around the Fairy Ring

A MAD TEA PARTY – The Queen’s Croquet, Move One Space on and Painting the Roses Red

THE FIERY BOG ADVENTURE – Collecting clues from the local residents and treasure hunting through the bog

THE OTHERWORLD – Pin the Wisps on the Ghoul and Apple Bobbing or fishing

MERRY KRAMPUS – Collecting the evil children and collecting clues from the neighbors

Do you accommodate allergies/dietary restrictions?

Yes, I do! It’s important to me that everyone enjoys their meal. With enough notice, I’m more than happy to make an alternative that fits your allergy or dietary restrictions.

How much notice do you need for a booking?

Please give me five (5) to seven (7) days before the date of the event to give me time to confirm details, plan shopping trips and prepare food. I also need to notify the venue owners.

Do you do weddings?

No, those are too big for my taste and not my thing. Otherwise, I enjoy doing small special occasion gatherings like birthday parties, and family dinners (as pictured below), and seasonal holidays like Halloween. Exclusive date nights (romantic or platonic) are fun too. My themed suppers could be perfect for employee appreciation or team building. diners

Are you licensed/certified/qualified?

I hold a Food Handler’s card with a 100% score, a culinary arts degree, and over a decade of restaurant experience while living in Portland in various restaurant settings. As a result, I have a solid understanding of the industry. Additionally, I hold high standards for the cleanliness of my kitchen. Also, Whimsy is a registered LLC and I hold general liability insurance.

Is this family-friendly?

I have done themed suppers for families before. Some themes have dark elements to them that may make some people uncomfortable. For example, the Otherworld will have a creepy-looking ghoul with a realistic-looking skull. If any part of a theme makes you feel uncomfortable, please do not book it or attend. Choose a theme that you feel comfortable with. The darker themes are similar to A Nightmare Before Christmas, the Munsters, or Coraline if that is helpful.

What if I need to cancel?

No worries, we can reschedule the supper event for another time.

What if I want a refund?

If you cancel your supper reservation and want a refund you must do that within 24 – 48 hours of cancelation and let me know as promptly as possible.
