We’ve already offered some tips on where to start your day in Madison with a coffee or a morning run. Now let’s talk about unwinding at the end of a long day. If this September isn’t your first time in Madison, you’ve probably tasted or heard about Wisconsin's unofficial state drink, the brandy old fashioned. While we love this classic, we hope you’ll enjoy some of our other local favorites. We recruited a few Nordic team members to share their preferred potent potables from around town.
While you’re visiting our hometown, we want your day to start off right. We’ve already poured over our love of local coffee shops, but if you’re planning to wake up with a morning run, you couldn’t pick many cities better than Madison. In addition to being America’s health IT hub, Madison has over 200 miles of trails that offer scenic views of the lakes, forests, wildlife, and, of course, the Capitol building. Here are a few suggested routes from the Nordic team to help you hit the ground running (or walking, or a little bit of both).
While you’re in Madison, you can probably expect long days of educational sessions and evenings filled with networking events (like our Open House.) Since you might need a kick of caffeine while you’re in the Badger State, a few members of the Nordic team have volunteered to help you out by sharing their favorite hometown coffee shops:
A few weeks ago, Nordic hosted its fourth annual Open House during UGM. Thanks to everyone who made it to the party. We hope you had a great time. If you missed it or just want to take a break from your day to relive the fun, check out the pictures and videos below and also see how the party helped raise money for returning veterans.
Nordic is working up with local organizations to benefit veterans and unemployed local residents during the week of Epic’s UGM.
If you’re looking for great restaurants while you’re in Madison for UGM, well, they’re all around you. Whether you’re traveling to South Central Wisconsin for the first time or you’re a UGM veteran, there are plenty of unique dining experiences in our home city. We’d like to offer you a few suggestions. We asked some members of Nordic to offer up their favorite restaurants. Some of them are Madison classics, while others may not be as well known.
