Road Trip: Wisconsin
Nestled between two lakes in America's Heartland is a little slice of America known as the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Though UW has a well-deserved reputation as a party school, there is more to do than drink until you fall down. Here are some of Madison's best-kept secrets:
Depends. If it's Mexican you want, Qudoba Mexican Grill is the answer. They serve anything from traditional burritos to nachos and quesadillas. Plus, chances are good you'll see an athlete while you're there. Don't like south of the border food? Stumble over to D.P. Dough or Lovshak, where you'll be treated to a variety of delectable calzones.
(Ian's Pizza is also a good bet, if you're willing to stand the lines.)
(Note: The pitfall, if there is one, is that you now have to pay an admission fee of $8. That was implemented to prevent the celebration from getting out of hand. It worked.)
Caution: Keep in mind (if you can) the dim lights combined with your drunk goggles may make you regret your late-night, inebriated impulse.
