Concerts on the Square #1: Accessories

Picnic blankets abounded on the Capitol lawn last night for the inaugural 2012 Concert on the Square. For such a steamy June evening, Madisonians came out in huge numbers to enjoy food, friends, booze and tunes by the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra. Picnic season has officially begun and we want to ensure you make the most out of the season this year. Having the right accessories is the foundation to any good picnic and we saw plenty great ones last night.
