Good beer options, delicious flatbreads, burgers and salads-never had to wait to be seated. Right down the street from the house. Get custard at Michaels or play a round of mini golf at Vitense after. Other locations downtown as well.

Beautiful spot on Lake Monona with capital view-great place to watch the sunset. Must be 21. Bring a picnic or get something to eat from the limited menu and enjoy your drink (they have non-alcoholic options too) at one of the many large tables. Play bags (or corn hole if you prefer) on-site, or go to the huge field to throw a frisbee, kick a soccer ball, or use the basketball and volleyball courts. Beach access allows swimming and boat rentals. Awesome atmosphere! Right across from botanical gardens.
