Mix and match your errands in Madison

The movie Secretary became my favorite as soon as it came out, and one of my favorite settings is the combination laundromat/restaurant where Maggie Gyllenhaal's character is romanced. I'd love it too if I was wooed over a cheeseburger while folding my whites. >More
 Cars on State prompt gawker slowdown

Madisonians descended on State Street on Saturday to witness something that hadn't been seen on that road in 35 years: gridlock. Yes, State Street, Madison's famous pedestrian mall which was closed to most traffic in 1972, was bumper-to-bumper with cars on Saturday as it played host to the inaugural "Cars on State" event. >More

The Zombie Survival Guide, a brains-in-cheek how-to book by Max Brooks published in 2003, suggests that persons on the lookout for nascent undead outbreaks should keep track of man bites dog stories and other telltale signs of reanimation. No such discerning eye will be needed on Saturday morning at the Mifflin Street Block Party, though, where an uprising of zombies is expected to occur. >More
 Mustaches for Kids Madison awards 'Stache Master title

Greg and 18 other men spent the month of April growing out their mustaches and earning pledges along the way, beginning with a clean-shaven day at the beginning of the month. >More
 Getting snubbed at the Great Midwest Alpaca Fest

This weekend, downtown Madison streets were lined with twenty-somethings tossing beanbags in between sips of PBR and bites of bratwurst. But I was not going to let my peers goad me into this trendy tomfoolery. I had plans. I was going to the Great Midwest Alpaca Festival! >More
 Kicking off a month-long trip to Nigeria

It's finally sinking in that I'll be away for a month. I'm taking my overstuffed bags to leave on a very long trip to Lagos, Nigeria. >More
