Supper Clubs and Klezmer Dance

Posted on

I’m always honored to write for On Wisconsin magazine (the publication of my alma mater, the University of Wisconsin-Madison), so I was twice as proud when I had the chance to contribute two pieces for the Summer 2017 issue.

  • This winter, I had an amazing 90-minute conversation with Rabbi Daniel Brenner ’92 about everything from Mifflin St. and doing improv with Chris Farley, to how he’s helping Jewish youth connect with their faith (and disconnect from their phones), to his passion for trying to keep traditional Jewish dances alive in a totally unique way. Just a super cool guy.
  • In February, I road-tripped up to Green Bay with Wisconsin Alumni Association staffer Kristen where dozens of alumni, many from the Brown County chapter, gathered to learn about the Science of Supper Clubs. The event reminded me of all the things I loved about working at WAA: Badgers swapping stories from the good ol’ days, great food (and beer samples from Wisconsin Brewing Co.), and some lifelong learning on the side.

99 things to do in Madison this summer

Posted on

I got 99 problems … but how to enjoy summer in Madison ain’t one!

I had so much fun researchingΒ 99 things to do in Madison this summer for the Greater Madison Convention & Visitors Bureau (and they did an amazing job designing this web page, too).

From old favorites (the Memorial Union, Babcock ice cream and Dane County dog parks) to items still on my bucket list (Allen Centennial Gardens, Movies in the Park and the Monona Community Pool), there’s no excuse to ever be bored in Madison.

As someone who prefers summer over winter – yes, even our beautiful Wisconsin winters – I hadn’t given much thought to how to stay fit in these cold months. Here are 10 fun workouts I found for the Greater Madison Convention and Visitors Bureau (visitmadison.com).

#100DaysOfGilmoreGirls

Posted on Updated on

Everyone was so excited about the four new episodes of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life on Netflix, I thought I ought to give it a try. I watched 156 episodes in 100 days and tweeted about every single one.

My review: I think my reaction to this series would have been very different if I’d watched its original airing, when I was Rory’s age in the series, in college and in love with Dawson’s Creek.
