It's cold.

That's the #1 complaint I get while I'm bartending at my nighttime gig. That's also when I typically figure out that the person I'm speaking to is not a Madison native.

Us Dane County Dwellers know that the cold is still here for at least a couple more months. We know that there has been colder weather #polarvortex2019. We know that, because it's only February, it's useless to spend our time waiting for the seemingly elusive summer weather. That being said, I decided it was time for another post covering the winter-proof events in Madison in the next month, so that none of you have the excuse to drop off the face of Wisconsin until warmer, sunnier times.

Everyone believes in something.

That's why, to start off 2019, we want to promote an organization and cause we truly believe in here at Madison Neighborhoods - Keller Williams: Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin

A little about Second Harvest Foodbank:

  • Nonprofit hunger-relief charity organization
  • Southern Wisconsin's largest hunger relief-charity

Music lovers / de-stressers are lucky to live in Madison.

Not only do we constantly have new and awesome bands coming to town, but we have multiple venues to choose from that reside in the city.

For those of you who are unaware, one of the biggest money makers for both chocolate companies and florists is next week: Valentine's Day, or as some of my friends like to call it, Singles Awareness Day.

Lucky for us Dane County dwellers, there are a ton of really great restaurants to choose from for an occasion as so.
