Upcoming events in Madison

Regarding yesterday's trip to Burlington, WI, we highly recommend the Spinning Top Museum & the Logic Puzzle Museum. The Sci-Fi Cafe was...ummm...interesting, but we recommend eating elsewhere.

A mish-mash of events this week...

Wednesday, March 26
6:30-7:30 PM and 7:45-8:45 PM
