Tastings and Tag – a Laser Blast!

By Brandon Blackmer

Last Thursday, Ultrazone Madison and Madison Magnet co-hosted a pairing of local distiller’s, great food, and of course, laser tag. Ultrazone really set the bar and provided an excellent array of food, ranging from a full Gyro bar, BBQ brisket sliders, shrimp cocktails, meat and vegetable trays, and several different desert options.

 People mingled in Ultrazone’s newly redesigned front rooms, which had high top tables and chairs, and with all of the space, it was easy to mingle and get to know other members of the Madison community, all while enjoying food, and of course, the drinks! 

Once you had a bite to eat (or maybe before, depending on how thirsty one was!), and got to know some of the other people there, attendees mingled with 5 different alcohol vendors, including Karben4 Brewery, Yahara Bay Distillers, State Line Distillery, and Total Wine.  Each vendor mixed excellent summer cocktails or poured healthy portions of wine, and were sharing their best summer recipes with us. 

With almost 40 people in attendance, the laser tag was awesome! Ultrazone’s multi-level arena allowed plenty of places for people to sneak up on their opponents, and playing on multiple teams, there were plenty of targets and opportunities to engage new people.  The game was an excellent workout, and almost everyone in attendance played, which added to the excitement. After the first game was played, a few people continued to play, and others got a few more bites to eat and had another drink. 

The social and networking aspect was casual but great, and everyone met at least a few people that they didn’t know before. The event was definitely one for the books, and was a lot of fun.  Keep your eyes peeled for the next Tastings and Tag at Ultrazone on July 12, 2018. We highly recommend showing up hungry, and bringing your friends!
