I will be there.  We unfortunately lost one of our group this year.  He is sorely missed.  It will be very strange to be in Madison without him.

That said, life must go on.  A new member of the group has been added.  The new guy will be the most handsome man in Madison that weekend. 

Beat Down Bucky!

Ummm... then what's the point?  Yeah, the long islands are decent, but no wings?

How do you balance the diabetes you get from the long islands then? 

although I’d be more concerned about catching a communicable disease in that place.  😂

They didn’t have wings last year.  The owner died and they got rid of the food.  We promptly left for another bar.

 

I can see popping in for a Long Island, just for ole’ times’ same, but with the owner gone and the wings with him…. it is no longer a spot to pregame for me.

I am hoping the Merchant is up and running again.  They were closed last year for some reason.

just to clarify for others here, the owner did not die while we were at the bar. 😂

But yeah, Joel was one of the reasons we like to go there.  He would put our Gopher group picture on the wall every year and was always very welcoming to our group.

🖐️.  They have a small microwave, a grill and a deep fryer.  We only ate the wings for a reason.

@bertogliat I am going to call them.  You would think Joel's wife would keep the wings   I am wondering if they did not do them due to covid and things last year

If she kept the bar, that would be awesome because Joel loved that place.  I hope they kept the wings.  I would go back.

Haven't been to Madison in years.  Should take the wife one time after a South Bend trip.  South Bend is a fun trip and easy drive. Plus you rarely and I mean rarely run into a$$hole fans who think they need to act tough. 

Keep your stick on the ice...

Do you take Jr. to Madison? One of the coolest kids around.  Him alone would make the trip epic.

@gator This will be his 3rd year.   His Pic is up in 2 of the bars.   2 years ago Joel at the Shed let him in after 10pm.  Before we left for the game we said see ya tomorrow.  Joel goes why not after.  Well Joel we have a child  He goes this is my bar.  He can come in.   So at 10:30 we get to the door.  Bouncer goes he cannot come in.   I say yell for Joel.  He did Joel gave the thumbs up and he was in.  It all started when Travis sat between 2 adults at the bar slapped down some money and ask for a sprite and quarters for Foosball.  Joel proceeded to play a game or 2 with him and talk.  He goes this kid (7 at the time) can have a conversation with adult  Who does he belong too.  Cowgirl bought Travis a Red Shed Shirt a few years ago   His pic is there and at the City on the Keg cooler.    He is allowed in the City after 10pm also.   He just chills out and plays the DJ there.  He loved going to Madison and hates Bucky.   He gets a kick out of hanging out with the adults and does not get in their way.   Everyone from Cowgirl to Bertoglait to MNrouser.

No reason to go to the Shed anymore.  End of an era.  This is bigger than the tragic loss of the University Inn with it's weird staff, half eaten donuts in the lobby and bitter canned orange juice.  "But we have great coffee!" 

I am ready for my whisky sours at The Merchant and old fashioneds at The Great Dane.  Maybe a burger at Dotty's or The Plaza?  Glass Nickel pizza in the room late Friday is a must.  We still have a few worthy spots left in that town, but I will miss the wings and the old bartenders at the Shed....especially Joel (RIP).

🙁

Can't make the trip this year, but I agree... the Long Islands are fun, but if you can't get wings to go with them, it's time to move on. 

I'd gone in to the Shed on a trip in the summer once for a distillery festival in Madison.  Didn't have any Gopher gear or anything on, and Joel recognized me as part of the road-trip crew. RIP Joel, we miss you.

Ah the Uni Inn.  The Same guy for 15 year with his sweaters that would watch you go all the way into the elevator.    Remember Fat Sandwich.   That was great too

The Plaza is a dump but the greasy burgers are the best.  Did you ever go to Bennetts Smut and Eggs.   At the Time 9am happy hour $.75 High Life and Hard Core Porn on while you eat breakfast

I am loyal to the City bar since we get comps  Kevin is such a good dude at that place.  That will always be my starting point for the trip.

No. Even in my 20s it wasn’t worth getting up at 9 am to watch porn.  If I recall it was a trek to get there too.  And could you ever trust the bathroom there?  Gross.

I’d go to the shed and raise one bad Long Island as a tribute to Joel.

Where is a good place to park for games?

Looks like a few decent ramps north of the Kohl Center.

We have parked in the ramps just north of the arena. No problems. Although we arrive early and leave late. If you’re trying to leave the area right after the game, it looks like a cluster.

Now this is when the Kohl Center had people show up.  Getting out of the Ramps is a mess.  Get a drink or food after.   As for this season the Kohl Center is empty     So maybe less traffic..

Why would the ramp be a mess if I get there early and leave late?

There is a ramp by the Fluno Center that is close.  But I would park in the ramp on Francis street right next to University Ave (Next Door to State Street Brats so you'll be close to post game bars.

Or if your staying in Madison, grab an Uber so you can enjoy yourself a bit more...!

For the whiskey drinkers in the group, here's a pro-tip (and btw, awesome pizza). Look closely, and delve into the listing...
