There are a lot of wonderful networking groups in Madison. You could easily attend three events in one day if you wanted ;-)
I regularly attend the Max Lunches at Bonfyre American Grille on the first Wednesday of every month: request to join their FB page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/MAX.Madison/10152256530744007/. MAX is not a Meetup group, but I'm posting it here to let you know of the opportunity to network.
MAX now has an Eventbrite ticket system. Please watch here for a link when it becomes available or look it up on Eventbrite. PLEASE confirm on Meetup and Eventbrite.

A group of local business people from the Madison, Wisconsin area.
We are a mix of professionals — technical, creative, sales & marketing and more!
No membership fees, no pretense — we get together for lunch once a month. We meet and we eat.
Join us anytime!!
**Send a request to be added to the FB group. Everyone is welcome!** (https://www.facebook.com/groups/MAX.Madison/members/)
There is no membership fee/requirements. This group is appropriate for both MEN & WOMEN. Just join the group for lunch when it works in your schedule.
You are not required to purchase a lunch (but they are tasty). There is a special Menu for these lunches with a nice selection and the price is set at $15. That covers your lunch, beverage and the tip.
