Founded in 1921, Dane County Humane Society (DCHS) is an open-admission shelter that cares for approximately 7,000 animals every year—including companion animals, exotic species, farm animals, and injured or orphaned wildlife. It accepts all animals regardless of age or health condition. In 2003, DCHS partnered with the University of Wisconsin's School of Veterinary Medicine to become the first organization to treat ringworm, an infectious disease once thought untreatable in animals, and has since saved the lives of more than 650 cats.
Every animal that enters DCHS’s facility receives necessary medical treatments. After being microchipped and evaluated for behavioral issues, companion animals are placed with permanent families. The organization also helps rehabilitate ill, injured, or orphaned wildlife through its Four Lakes Wildlife Center program. When not working directly with animals, DCHS advocates for humane animal laws and provides outreach programs to teach people about animal welfare.
A former private detective and bodyguard, Tim draws upon his firsthand experience to teach self-defense skills and safety procedures at Wisconsin Concealed Carry Training Academy. In courses with or without a shooting component, the NRA-certified instructor creates an interactive, comfortable environment for students to learn about safe weapon handling and storage, the parts of a firearm, and state gun laws. Though he trains pupils in shooting fundamentals at a local outdoor range, Tim also stresses self-protection alternatives such as pepper spray. Once classes wrap up, he happily answers any lingering questions.
Twirling revelers cut through colorful lights and twirling dancers while Lava Lounge's bartenders shake up martinis, pour frosty pints of domestic beer, and forge an array of cocktails. The menu flaunts multicolored concoctions like a chemist's resumé, with drinks including the key-lime-pie martini, a fusion of creamy vanilla and citrus flavors with a honey-and-graham-cracker-crumb rim. The trance-inducing Zombie cocktail swirls dark rum and cherry brandy, and drink specials rotate daily between potent long island teas ($2), piquant glasses of bloody mary ($3), and sloshing pitchers of domestic brews ($4). Occasional live-music events create a sonic backdrop while customers practice coordination every Tuesday with beer-pong tournaments ($5 cups) for cash prizes or hit the dance floor for chances to prance through pulsing laser lights without getting kicked off museum-heist squads.
The sprawling four-day Bhakti Fest West solemnizes emotional attachment and devotion toward a personal god with its 26 yoga demonstrations, workshops where advanced yogis share mystical truths, and healing sanctuaries that feature massage, reiki, and acupuncture. The deep, soulful voice of Krishna Das headlines the festival’s lineup of more than 40 musical acts. Originally from New York, Das has toured the globe with music that interweaves feverish cadences with traditional and modern instrumentation. The former rock ‘n' roller and Grammy nominee explains the atavistic appeal of chanting by saying that it "just hits you and you want to be a part of it . . . you don't have to know what it means."
