Ah, Wisconsin [04.28.15]

My friend, John, and I just returned from the most wonderful road trip to Wisconsin, in spite of the grueling start.

This snapshot at the Madison Union is the Reader’s Digest version of the vacation. A good time was had by all.


Iowa is in fact the windiest state in Lower 48. I can attest to this after being ruthlessly whipped around on the drive from Des Moines to Iowa City Wednesday afternoon. But, after that, the drive both to and back from Wisconsin was uneventful.

We spent Wednesday night in Iowa City, dining at the marvelous slow-dining farm-to-table Devotay.

One word: Paella.


But, back to Wisconsin.

Thursday we dined at a local favorite, Delavan’s own Hernandez. Friday we traipsed around Delavan and Lake Geneva, dining at Sprecher’s. That night, we enjoyed a traditional Friday night Fish Fry at Delavan’s Duck Inn. Oh my!

We did, indeed…

Saturday was spent in Madison: Farmer’s Market, Memorial Union, Monona Terrace, and State Street with lunch at The Great Dane.  We left for home Sunday morning. Full. Giddy. Exhausted.

Best. Trip. Ever.
