Thursday. What a concept.

Happy Thursday, Madison!

We're almost through this week. Nice!

If you have a moment, would you mind telling us where you live? Not in a creepy way. We just want your zip code for research purposes. (If you already filled out this form last week, thank you!)

Also, there's snow in the forecast today. I'll let you decide if that's good news or not.

🚒 Your lunchtime read: Madison women firefighters tell their stories in new documentary.

  • Via The Cap Times: "Every day they’re on duty, the women who serve as firefighters in the Madison Fire Department display a courage that an average person couldn’t comprehend.

    For a new project, they had to display a different kind of courage — to step in front of a camera and talk about their experiences as women in a male-dominated profession.

    'In Her Boots' is a new feature-length documentary produced by the Madison Fire Department that features female firefighters who have worked in the department since the first group of eight women graduated from the Madison Fire Service Academy in April 1980."

It’s Maple Syrup Time!

March in Madison brings hints of spring. Migrating birds like sandhill cranes and robins start to return. Despite the freezing temps and occasional snowstorm, we start to feel like the worse of winter is behind us. This is the time to make maple syrup!

People have been tapping maple trees for thousands of years, way before Madison was a city. The tradition lives on at the Aldo Leopold Nature Center and their annual Maple Syrup Fest. We sit down with the center’s Education Director Virginia Wiggen and Marketing and Communication Manager Cara Erickson to get the scoop.

Maple Syrup Fest takes place Saturday, March 18th, from 1-4pm at the Aldo Leopold Nature Center in Monona.

Join us every Thursday as we explore Madison's food culture, from the brewers and bakers to the chefs and cheesemakers
