The CrossFit games will be here till 2021!
The Madison Sports Commission just hosted a press conference to announce that the Crossfit Games will continue to be hosted right here in Madison through 2021! Neil Mathweg and Caleb Jahr were on site (with their tiny little cameras) to capture this exciting news, which you can see on the I Love Madison Vlog! Last year, the Crossfit Games brought $12 Million in revenue to the greater Madison area, so the fact that they are extending their stay means even more awesomeness in the Madison area! It also means Caleb will be running around the city doing pushups, in an effort to get jacked! Stay tuned, more video updates to follow…
Where can you find Madison’s best fish fry?
For this segment of the Madison Food Tournament, the team is on the search for the best fish fry in the city! Everyone knows where to get their favorite cheese curds (after all, that’s a Madison staple), but Neil and Caleb pointed out that they don’t even know how many places around the city serve fish fry, so it’s hard to know where to start! If you are a fish fry fanatic, they are taking recommendations for this round of the Madison Food Tournament! You can share on all their social channels, they would be glad to hear from you!If you are a fish fry fanatic in #Madison, we are taking recommendations for this round of the Madison Food Tournament! @NeilMathweg @CalebJahr #ILOVEMADISON #Madison #MadisonFoodTournement #FishFry Click To Tweet
