Breakfast in bed….Sheraton Madison Hotel

5:50a Alarms go off! Snoozed twice….

6:10a Phoned and ordered room service because DAMN IT, I deserved it!!!! Stack of pancakes that cost $22 (with tax/tip).

7:40a Met up with colleagues staying at the same hotel for carpool. The Dodge rental had such a fuuuuunk! It intensely smelled of garlic fries!! I know it could have been worse, though it’s not so pleasant when you end up wearing the odor on yourself…..yucccckkkk!

8:00a Arrived in Epic’s property…its building and landscape is amazing! Has a feel of a lodge, much more than a class/conference type of atmosphere.

8:10a Grabbed some breakfast again….hey, it was complimentary!! I had to make up for the loss carbs and proteins the day before.

7:45ish pm In Madison, drove to State St and walked around til we ended up at a Japanese restaurant, Wasabi, where the waitress spilled a generous amount of yellow salad dressing on a friend’s khaki-colored shorts….a permanent stain.

9:30p We had passed a dessert café before our State St. promenade that I was determined to come back to, Sucre……….ummm, ummm, ummm, yummy…..Chef’s choice: crème brule trio (ginger, vanilla bean, blueberry)! I highly recommend this café!!!

10:10p Back in the hotel. A decent hour. Words of wisdom for the trip: There’s no I in TEAM (while simultaneously waving both fists in the air)…..STOP BEING A BABY, eat your dessert……MOM WANTS TO GO HOME……hahahahaha!
