Good job, dedicated Madison citizen. If you’re reading this, it means you’re already one of the most informed + connected Mad City residents (or at least you’re about to be).

We are 608today — your new go-to for navigating all things Madison. Whether you’re walking the dog, still in bed, sitting in the carpool line, or sipping your morning coffee, your life as a smart, engaged Madisonian just got a little bit easier.

Here’s what you can expect. ➡️

We’ll share what you need to know in Madison + the surrounding areas each day — from ranking the best dishes at a new restaurant to breaking down upcoming developments — so you can wake up, read one (free) email, learn something new, and move forward with your day. We call that a win.

We’re giving you a sneak peek into what we’re working on. Here’s what we’ve been talking about recently:

  • Each month you can utilize our curated event calendar to find the best ways to fill all of your days around town — from shows to seminars. 🗓️
  • If you’re already sipping on a summer lager, we’re helping you find the best patios in town to soak up the sun + celebrate the season. ☀️

  • We’re helping Madisonian’s beat the heat and stay cool with cold treats for a hot day. 🍦
  • And of course, we can’t do our job thoroughly without mentioning our favorite outdoor space — the UW-Madison Arboretum. Check out our guide for how to explore the arboretum. 🌳

Additionally, we’ll be chatting with you about Wisconsin slang, the history of Madison’s lost city + the dairy industry in the Badger State. 🐮
