Looks like I will be heading to the People’s Republic of Madison again in August (not telling you when, and no I do not want to meet you for drinks/dinner/a round of hookers. No offense. I’m just an agoraphobic misanthrope and the fact I am traveling is stressful enough. I’m sure you are very lovely people, with sparkling wit, a generous spirit, a deep intellect, and a flair for casual banter. I just have no desire to meet you. I apologize.).
I intend to go to the Tornado Room again, because it really was the best filet mignon I have ever had. And the Coquille Saint Jacques will make a grown man cry.
At any rate, I’m not really looking for iconic locations in Madison- I can find those on my own. I’m looking for hidden gems that others might miss.
And I must once again state, on the record, that Madison, WI, Athens, GA, and Austin, TX, are the greatest places in the US (besides my back porch). Y’all can have your NYC and San Fran and LA and the other places. I’ll take those three and not think twice about it.
