    Once again the WGCSA is organizing a great evening of food, conversation and friendship with our spouses/significant others! This year we are heading to downtown Madison Capitol Square.  We have arranged for a great evening of fun and dining at Coopers Tavern, 20 West Mifflin Street, Madison!  Enjoy wine, beer, spirits, appetizers and dinner served up by the friendly, confident staff at the private bar upstairs while enjoying a spectacular view of the Wisconsin State Capitol building. The WGCSA leaders hope you will join us to enjoy a night on the town with your special someone and celebrate the end to another long season!

    We will be having our event at Coopers Tavern, downtown Madison Capitol Square.  Our open bar cocktail reception and appetizers will run from 5:30pm-7:00pm and is again courtesy of the Generous Vendor Companies that have sponsored the event!  Buffet dinner will start at 7:15 in the private upstairs bar and events room overlooking the Capitol square. Following an after dinner drink at Coopers, we are planning to go as a group to one or two many night life spots around the Capital Square.  Please consider inviting some of our fellow industry peers and spouses. 

    Those of you needing hotel accommodations we have a few recommendations within walking distance. We do NOT have a room block (offered no discount) Of course, you can also reserve other hotels in the downtown Madison area on your own as well.
