Nothing like kicking off your long weekend with a grilled brat for breakfast!
Fans of Madison’s World’s Largest Brat Fest can begin “cele-BRAT-ting” at 6 a.m. on Friday, when “Take Your Brat to Work Day” begins at Willow Island at the Alliant Energy Center.
Many Madison business offices gather orders from employees early in the week and designate a “Brat Runner” to swing by Willow Island on their way into work.
Last year, nearly 15,500 brats were sold between 6am and 9 a.m. at the Take Your Brat to Work Day “drive-through” at Willow Island.
“We look forward to the Friday before Memorial Day weekend every year so we can eat brats at the office at 8am — it’s fun!” said Sharon Zelanka of Hammes Sports Development. ”It’s our breakfast, lunch and snack, too!”
