Years ago on a trip to Wisconsin, Joan and I stopped off at the Mustard Museum in Mount Horeb. When Joan’s Alma Mater, San Jose University was scheduled to play the Wisconsin Badgers, we signed up for the trip to the game and made reservations at the Marriott Hotel in Middleton, a small town just west of Madison. We were surprised to see that the Mustard Museum had relocated to Middleton. The game was somewhat of a bust, even though I got to be on the field as a photographer, but the stay in Middleton was a delight. We now make it a standard habit to always plan a stop when going through the area.
This year we made Middleton a destination to take advantage of the Annual National Mustard Day celebration, and to escape the crowds at Lollapalooza in Chicago right next to our condo. Here are some pictures that tell the story, not only of Mustard Day, but our trip that also included Capital Brewery and a couple of knitting stores.
