Cocktail Caravan Bar Puts a Liquid Spin on the Food Truck

Cocktail Caravan Bar is ideal for those looking for a different cocktail experience. Started by sisters Ashley and Amanda Willis of Sisters’ Soiree, LLC, Cocktail Caravan puts a spin on the popular food truck by providing everything in one business: delivery of supplies and ice, connections to liquor stores across the state for a wide variety of selections to match any price point, a staff with attention to detail, clean-up services and of course the bar itself, which makes a great conversation piece, photo backdrop and more.

Madison’s Stryxe is a Hot Spot for Gatherings

If you haven’t visited Stryxe in Madison yet, it may be time. This facility opened in February 2016 and features a one-stop shop for venue rental space, team-buildings, get-togethers and more. Groups as small as 10 and as large as 500 are equally at home in this space where 12,000 square feet of gathering space includes three private rooms. And for fun? Well, Stryxe has 20 state-of-the-art bowling lanes, plus 31 amusement and parlor games. Gourmet gastropub-style eating is part of the experience.

Meet Megan Buzzetta, Buzz Registration

Megan Buzzetta is no stranger to the meetings and events industry. She started her company Global Planners, Inc. in 2000 and now has grown to 30 employees. Global Planners specializes in full-service and ancillary corporate meeting and conference planning services, but when the economy collapsed in 2010 it was Buzz Registration, a slice of the business, that kept them afloat.
