About the locals!

Barriques: “In addition to our irresistible fresh from the oven bakery, we have a light sandwich and salad menu to take care of your tummy. For evening enjoyment we serve several tap beers, and wines by the glass or bottle. Plus you can pick up a bottle of your favorite wine from the infamous Wall of 100.”
Old Sugar Distillery: “The name Old Sugar stems both from the use of sugar as a base for many of the products and from Madison’s history of beet sugar production. All the spirits are crafted, beginning to end, in house using the modified pot-still made by Colonel Wilson.”
Calliope Ice Cream: “Calliope Ice Cream develops, discovers, and explores all the awesome flavor combinations that exist outside of the traditional ice cream box, conjuring fond memories through flavor and using the highest quality ingredients available. We are inventive, innovative, and creative (without being gimmicky) and strive to have a good time while we work hard. Remember, it’s only ice cream after all.”
