The Game of Magnets
The Metcalf market is sponsoring a swag bag for the first Game of Magnets giveaway! If you are not already playing, you should be! There are tons of Madison residents who have already joined and are on the search for more magnets around the city! After you receive your magnet, you can register it on social media, then keep an eye out for other magnets around the city. If your magnet or a magnet you have registered gets selected, you win some great prizes to local places around the city!
Caleb Vs. Madison
If you know Caleb Jahr, you know he is a tenacious guy, even when he is attempting to block shots from a bunch of professional hockey players. This week, he donned some goalie gear (it was waaayy too big for him) at the Capitol Ice Arena and did his level best to defend the goal. In the future, Caleb will be volunteering for other “Caleb vs. Madison” challenges, so if you have ideas, please submit them! Neil is thinking he needs to milk a cow…if you have a cow (a literal cow, not just a melt-down), and are willing to volunteer said cow, reach out!For the next “Caleb vs. Madison” challenge, Neil is thinking he needs to milk a cow...if you have a cow (a literal cow, not just a melt-down), and are willing to volunteer said cow, reach out! @NeilMathweg @CalebJahr #ILOVEMADISON… Click To Tweet
Trailing spouses…and everyone else in Madison should embrace winter
This week, Neil spoke at an event called Disrupt Madison about trailing spouses in Madison. He recaps some of that talk on this episode, in case you missed it! One idea that came up was the fact that everyone connects in the summertime, but in the winter, everyone becomes a hermit (understandably). It was suggested to Neil that Madison residents should embrace winter, and find ways to connect and build community, despite the cold. If you are outdoorsy, you might consider exploring some of the winter activities, like snowshoeing, snowmobiling, ice fishing, etc. If staying indoors is more your speed, consider hosting friends for game nights, cozy fires and a beverage of your choice! What ideas do you have for winter activities in Madison? The hosts would love to hear them!
Bucky On Parade
Kate Dale works with the Madison Area Sports Commission, an organization that supports local sports through grants to local youth programs and services. They are responsible for some of the most successful events in the Midwest – USA Cycling National Championships, Ironman Wisconsin, and WIAA High School State Championships, just to name a few. They are also behind the Bucky On Parade, a free public art event featuring 85 life-size Bucky Badger statues throughout Madison and Dane County. Local and regional artists have transformed these Bucky statues into unique works of art, which will later be auctioned off to support Garding Against Cancer, Madison Area Sports Commission and other community charities. Bucky on Parade provides many opportunities for the community to get involved and be a part of the fun, including a Kid’s Activity Book, Finale Party, Talks and Tours and more!
