Yes, it is cold and there is lots of snow piled around but there is a lot to do this month. Here’s a quick summary of weekend events in the month of January:
January 8-10 is Madison Home Expo 2010 time. Do you need a little inspiration for an upcoming facelift for your home? You will find it here.
January 9 or 16 Michael Feldman is in town for his WPR radio show, Whad’Ya Know. If you have never been part of a live audience for a radio program, you have to go. It’s a hoot!
January 15 and 16, 22 and 23 get out the saddle shoes and head on down to Fort Atkinson to the Fireside Dinner Theatre for Those Fabulous 50′s and 60′s . It is just a pretty drive through the rolling countyside. You will still be smiling and humming the tunes when you return.
January 30 WOW a busy day. You will have to make some choices. The Broadway tour of Rent will be onstage at the Overture Center. Wollersheim Winery will be celebrating the release of their 2008 Port with live jazz, light food, and port and wine tastings. Check out the eagles on the Wisconsin River while you are in the area. If Port is not your thing you might enjoy the Isthmus Beer and Cheese Feast at the Alliant Energy Center. Taste Wisconsin’s finest and choose your favorite pairing. Then get all dressed up and head to the heart of the city for Madison’s Frostiball. Dance the night away in the magnificent capitol rotunda.
See, there is plenty for guests at the Speckled Hen Inn to do in January. Or for those who don’t want to “do”, there is always watching the wild turkeys and the squirrels and birds at the feeders, trying out the snowshoes, watching the fire in the woodburner, or catching a game or a movie on the bigscreen.
