1. Town is called Verona, not Vernona.
2. The biking is indeed beautiful.
3. Great Dane is good but expensive food.
4. Ian's Pizza is all that and more.
5. My guess for Radical sauce: Some kind of hot sauce mixed with ketchup. My advice with Radical sauce: eat it.

verona: fixed.
might add in ian's pizza, but since i'm not going.
i do think if you have any enjoyment of biking, it'd be the way to get around for the weekend, even if the fields are 10 miles from downtown....

Go to the square. See the Capitol. Eat at Old Fashioned. Order fried cheese curds and a #38.

hmm. What is this Cheese Curds and #38 of which you speak?
naw, sounds good. I also think it's worth pointing out that it's brat fest this weekend. although, i tried to find things I might actually have time to do. and yeah, beer, cheese and brats would definitely be happening. I was saving that for saturday night to watch the nba semi - finals and sort of chill out... part 2 tomorrow.

Does anybody know if the road in front on the complex is still under construction? (I hope not, that was 11 months ago)

Or if there are any food vendors there? I know there is a sandwich shop (Milo's?) like 500 feet from the entrance.

Is there any word on extra parking? The place got pretty full when it was just Swiss with 32 teams and no spectators

Any early thoughts on games for Saturday? Ignoring results from Saturday I was interested in Pitt-UNCW round 1, Wisco-Harvard Round 2 (and maybe UCF-Luther for random reasons) Women's Oregon-Minnesota and Wisco-Stanford round #3 and round 4 just wherever the most drama/importance is.

Please excuse Harry and his high school budget. When he says the Dane is "expensive" he means that entrees range between $7-14. He is correct in saying it's good; I'd go further and say it's delicious.

Ah good. I actually made a good faith effort to find stuff that I'd go check out if I was there. But my first action upon arriving would be to ask my peers where to go. And by "expensive" he means, "quite reasonably priced," and a short walk from the stadium? I'm down.

I wouldn't say I wasted, but too many years of my tournaments involved too much plane, car, hotel, soccer complex, and not enough of the stuff that makes every city different.

greenville nc....eastern carolina style bbq at parkers
boston....the aquarium and cheers
choptank...laying with feet pointed up the washington monument, ade
watch tv in that big ole chair,
indiana.....running up the stairs of that tower in downtown
indianapolis
oregon or washington.....where ever they have that world famous
'copper river salmon'....i ate that stuff while they were 'running'
suny invite(?).....walking around nycity...sleeping in 3 different
parks after having driven thru the entire night...smelling those nasty
smells and getting dizzy lookin' up at all the tall buildings....
Lehigh Pa....uhm....a friendly's restaurant?????

crowd.......Rutgers, THE Ohio State, Harvard.....a couple
others...couldn't get into indianapolis, but considered pretending to
be parents of some kids going in on field trips....but resisted. the
Alabama stadium....that place COULD be penetrated.....but it'd take
some more figuring

Agreed. Do not avoid the Dane on account of the cost, it may actually be one of the cheaper meals you can find in downtown Madison and the price/excellence ratio is fantastic. Also, order the nachos.

If you're looking for a truly expensive meal then I would recommend the Tornado Club, a steak house right off the capitol square. Budget $50/person, but sweet jesus are those steaks worth it.
