Things to Do around Monroe, WI

If you are looking for something to do in the upcoming week, there are some great events going on in Monroe and Green County.

~ Styles ala Carte takes place again tomorrow, Thursday, January 15. Enjoy lunch and a fashion show at Turner Hall in Monroe from 12 until 1:30.

~ This weekend in New Glarus is the annual Winter Fest Veterans Reunion. The early bird gathering is on Thursday evening, and events take place throughout Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

~ Feel like karaoke? You can warble away on Thursday starting at 8 pm at Donna's Place in Monticello or Friday starting at 8:30 at the Nest Tavern in Belleville.

~ If you would rather watch others doing the singing - or dancing or acting - then come to the annual MAC Community Showcase of Talent. It takes place at the Monroe High School Performing Arts Center on Friday, January 16 and Saturday, January 17 this year. Showtime is 7:30 pm both nights. Tickets are $10 and are available via the MAC website or at the door.

~ If green issues and sustainability are important to you, attend the upcoming webinar sponsored by UW Extension. This is the fourth in the series, and it will take place from 11:15 am until 1 pm on Tuesday, January 20. The topic is sustainability and strategic planning. You can attend in person at Yodel Hall in the Government Services Building in the Pleasant View complex just north of Monroe, and the webinar is linked to other UW Extension groups. The series continues throughout the spring, and you can view more information here.

~ The Young Professionals of Green County are having their first gathering for the New Year. They are sponsoring a Martini Tasting on January 22 starting at 5 pm. Come meet at Flanagan's Shenanigans on the south side of Monroe's Downtown Square. Luis and I will be there, so be sure to say hi if you come.

Don't let the cold winter weather force you to hibernate! Get out and enjoy the many options for entertainment available in the next week.
