There is no way to be bored in Madison during the summer. It’s as if the winters are so horrible Madisonites take every opportunity to cram something in during the warmer weather.
Every Wednesday The Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra performs a two segment concert on the Capitol Square. It’s really an enjoyable time. The square fills up fast starting at 4pm, concert starts at 7pm, with blankets and lawn chairs covering the grass. Picnic baskets are filled with cheese/crackers, wine, and fruits are often spotted atop the blankets. I’ve even seen small roll up tables that sit no more than a foot off the ground. As you probably guessed, I go with Ada, Meiko, and my bug spray. The rules are pretty simple, the chairs can’t be more than 6 inches off the ground and try not to talk…It’s basically just an excuse to get everyone that lives in Madison downtown to be social so I suppose the only rule that is followed is the chair rule.
