It’s easy being green

On Friday, March 6, from 7-11 p.m., the third annual Sustainability Sideshow at the Madison Children’s Museum, 100 N.

A fundraiser for both Sustain Dane and MCM, this year’s Sustainability Sideshow will include a new Edible Insect Banquet ($15) featuring five inventive courses from Liliana’s chef Dave Heide. Tickets cost $20 in advance and $25 at the door and include appetizers, ice cream, a “Compost-olitan” cocktail and three game tickets.
