while this is almost chowish --
is the Mt. Horeb Mustard museum still open, just outside of Madison. Is it worth the stop? What other chowish delights can be found between Madision and Northern WI?
Also, there used to be an AMAZING cafe restaurant in Madison WI that was also a book store. It had great folk music regualrly. It also had hotel rooms upstairs. Its not Ovens of Brittany or Sunporch... but something else It was owned by a local Madison family. I spent over 3 years of my life having coffee with my college buddies there, and i can't remember the name of the place!
