Last weekend Logan and I went to Madison to celebrate his birthday. He’s pretty much an old man because he’s 22… We like to plan surprise dates for one another, so I had a blast planning this weekend for him. I was super happy that every part of my plan worked out perfectly!
Our first stop was Capital Tap Haus. I picked it because Logan is borderline obsessed with beer and this place had awesome reviews. It was also super close to our second stop. P.S. this place has amazing zucchini fries.
The second stop: Comedy on State was the main event! It’s this little comedy club that features three comedians. The setup was interesting because you sit with people you don’t know. We sat with two strangers who clearly did not enjoy the show. Their unhappy reactions to the jokes made the night even funnier. We thought the comedians were really great. I recommend this place to anyone who likes to laugh, so like everyone ever. The tickets were super cheap, and if it’s your birthday you get free entry, a glass, and two tickets for a future show!
We stayed over night so we could have two days of fun! The first thing we did was stop by Ancora coffee shop to get our caffeine fix (Logan and I are major caffeine addicts). They had some amazing roasts to choose from, but we both settled on the Black and Tan, and it was awesome. After we got some coffee, we went to the Capitol Square Farmer’s Market! My favorite part of a Wisconsin farmer’s market is the abundance of free cheese samples. Logan and I got some spaghetti squash and a giant sweet potato which we made into a delicious dinner later that night.
After roaming the farmer’s market, we went to Marigold Cafe for brunch and it was super tasty. It was kind of a weird set up. Right when you walked in you ordered your food at a counter and then you had to wait for a table to open up. Regardless, the breakfast was delish.
After brunch we wandered down State street going in and out of niche stores, my favorite. We looked at lots of little trinkets that everyone wants, but no one needs. We may or may not have settled my fro-yo addiction more than once that weekend. Overall, it was a great trip and a wonderful birthday celebration!
