Art Fair on the Square with Brunch at Great Dane (Downtown)

The annual Art Fair on the Square is one of Madison's most popular summer events, and the outdoor garden at the downtown Great Dane is one of my favorite brunch spots. Getting to enjoy both in one day with the Madison Energizers is a bonus!

Please join me for brunch at the Great Dane when it opens at 11 AM. I will request seating for us in the downstairs outdoor garden which is lovely. Afterwards, we can take a walk around the Art Fair on the Square for all those who are interested. If people get thirsty, we can always stop for liquid refreshment.

See you there!

    Thank you for organizing this event Jean. You are really good with thinking of fun things to do! We tried to catch up with you at the Art Fair but there were too many people to look at!

    Thanks for organizing this Jean. It was good to see everyone and see all the wonderful art. I picked up some pottery off the square from the high school group. Love it.

    How long do you think the group will be together today? Will you be going into the evening? Is it still a fairly large group?

      We splintered off as everyone explored their interests at the Art Fair.

      Ropes and chains would have prevented that

    We're at the Argus at 123 Main Street if anyone wants to stop for a cocktail. It's at the corner of Main and Webster near the Great Dane.

      Yes, 12:30 would be a good time to meet us at the Great Dane to start walking around the Square. I will try to snag a balloon from the Great Dane to tether to myself as we begin walking.

    Hi, everyone! Looks like we'll have a great turnout for this Saturday's Art Fair and brunch. I will get to the Great Dane just before it opens at 11 AM to start greeting people and directing them to the downstairs outdoor garden. The Great Dane does not take reservations on big festival days, but seating should not be a problem since we'll get there at opening time. If you arrive later, please tell the hostess you're with the big meetup group downstairs. After we eat, we'll take a walk around the Art Fair. Folks usually drop in and out as they want, and that's perfectly OK. The weather for Art Fair is almost always hot and sunny, so we will get thirsty! :) What we did last year was stop for an afternoon cocktail at the Argus. It was a cool, quiet place for us to relax. I'm really looking forward to Saturday and to seeing you all there!
