Badger Football, Basketball, and Hockey

Hate to fight the crowds on Regent Street? Our pre-game and post-game celebrations are all the fun without getting your toes stepped on. Going to the football game? We offer a FREE SHUTTLE BUS TO/FROM CAMP RANDALL!! Or walk the bike path that follows the rail corridor-- it's paved, uncongested and a direct path to the stadium!

Fat Tuesday - February 28, 2017

The biggest and best Mardi Gras celebration in Madison! Traditional Cajun and Creole specialities are served including seafood gumbo, jambalaya, crawfish etouffee, cornbread, red beans and rice, and key lime pie.  Hurricanes (a refreshing and potent red punch) are the beverage of choice, the best rum drink this side of the Bayou.

The bar is decorated in shades of purple, green, and gold, and zydeco music plays.  The staff will award beads to those who earn them! A party worthy of Bourbon Street.

This is the premier fête of the season in Madison; it's New Orleans without the water!

See our menu of Creole and Cajun Specialities


St. Patricks Day - Friday, March 17, 2017

          

Saints be praised, I must admit, ya' all look Irish ta' me!  The Echo Tap serves up hefty portions of Corned Beef and Cabbage, and the beer and attitudes are green. Bring your good cheer.

"When money's tight and hard to get
and your horse is also ran,
When all you have is a heap of debt
a pint of plain is your only man."
