Kudos to Huffington Post for the list/link bait quality of today's story titled "This Is The ONE Thing You Must Do In Each U.S. State."
In it, editors asked "this question to (them)selves, to (their) trusted friends, and to a whole bunch of HuffPost editors." They call the story the "ultimate American travel guide."
Of course, it's a tall task to pick just one thing to do in each state, and not too much different than trying to pick your favorite child. Nonetheless, HuffPost did it and the answers vary from parks to places and foods to festivals. For our wonderful state, the editors selected Madison for their choice. Specifically, the Dane County Farmer's Market.
Here's what they had to say:
"Everyone in Madison – from hippies to soccer moms – shops the Saturday smorgasbord that sets up around the Capitol building (they're open almost all year round!). Be sure to pick up some classic Wisconsin cheese curds.
Recommended by Paul Brandeis Raushenbush, executive editor of Huffington Post Religion."
I love farmers markets, and the farmers market in Madison is wonderful. But, if I could do only one thing in Wisconsin, I'm pretty sure it's not in my top five.
What's your ONE thing people should do in Wisconsin? Chime in and represent.

The Zac Brown Band may be the closest to a true definition of a current day Summerfest mainstay as you can get. Their cross genre approach has wide appeal and while firmly anchored in their traditions and heritage the band is constantly evolving, taking risks and adding sounds, personality and styles.

After the show, my wife simply said that it was just "honest and real." That's what the show was. Urban and his band even stayed on stage afterwards shaking hands, slapping high fives and thanking the Wisconsin fans.
