Dave's Madison Trivia

Tidbit #1: The only clock on capital square is this Guiness-themed time piece on the sign over the door of Brocach, downtown Madison's "Irish" pub. And it's wrong. I don't remember when it stopped working; maybe when vandals broke the windows last month. For the past couple weeks it's been stuck at about five-thirty, although this morning it was twelve o'clock so maybe it's finally broken loose and is trying to catch up.

I've been to an Irish pub or two and they didn't resemble this one much, which combines the rustic decor of a Black-Eyed Pea with the tables and booths of a Bennigan's. The food's not bad, though, and they do serve Guiness, plus I like the location. Worth stopping for. Just not all that Irish.
