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."Â
In it, editors asked "this question to (them)selves, to (their) trusted friends, and to a whole bunch of HuffPost editors."Â 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.Â
Here's what they had to say:
"Everyone in Madison â€“ from hippies to soccer moms â€“ 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.Â
What's your ONE thing people should do in Wisconsin? Chime in and represent.

As we look at the growth in greater Downtown, I think a place like City Winery could do well. It's unique, large and creates an experience that's missing in our market. But, what do I know? What do you think?

I knew I had lost it. I went for a walk last Saturday and took only my phone and debit card. The phone was for some podcast catch up and the debit card for a quick stop at the grocery store on the way home.

"Cheap drinks, Midwestern soul food and a sensibility that incorporates equal parts worldliness with small-town friendliness." This is how a new New York Times' Frugal Traveler feature on Milwaukee ends. Quite fitting, I'd say.
