Currently, there nine restaurants around the city that are in the running to be crowned the champion. Don’t forget to vote for your favorite burger!
While you are out in search of some delicious food, don’t forget to watch for the I Love Madison magnets around town. Listeners can take a picture of the magnets they find and post them on social media to register those magnets. Each week during the show, Neil will give out prizes to the owner of the winning magnets, as well as anyone who has registered that magnet! This is a great way to connect with other people, have some fun and win some great prizes!
Chris Sorenson hosts the “Meetup of the Week” segment
If you have burgers on the brain, why not add a beer and maybe a brisk run? This meetup of the week, hosted by Chris Sorenson is called the Madison Beer Runners. This group starts at a pre-selected bar, grabs a beer, then runs to the next bar for another drink. With over 600 members, the chances of finding good people to share good beer with are very high. Lace-up, then drink up, you have earned it!The chances of finding good people to share #goodbeer with are very high at this Madison Meetup!

Chris Reese hosts the “My Move” segment with guest Lewis Bentley
Lewis Bentley could very well be called “Mr. Madison,” since he knows the city so well and is well-connected in several ways. Besides sitting on the board for Operation Fresh Start, an organization that provides Dane County youth a path to self-sufficiency through education and job training, Lewis coaches his children’s sports teams and is a self-declared foodie. Lewis loves this area because it is so family-friendly, and there is always something to do, even when the weather outside is cold. From the free music and kids activities on Saturday at the Rotunda to the Thanksgiving 5k that benefits local education, Lewis says there is something for everyone. He recommends stopping by Ha Long Restaurant for some Vietnamese flavor, as well as the restaurant Lucille for some outstanding cocktails, craft beers, and pizza.
