Three things to do in & around La Crosse this weekend.

It was absolutely beautiful last Sunday! Even though I spent a good portion of my morning picking up dog shit in my backyard, it was REALLY nice to finally be outside.

And while it won’t be as warm this weekend, the temps are trending in the correct direction. I’m definitely planning on spending some time at a brewery at some point this weekend, and we are probably going to hit the UWL Planetarium at some point for the final Saturday of “Searching for exoplanets“.

If you’re looking for something to do this weekend, here’s a few suggestions:

Tonight!!!! Get to the Arterial Bar & Grill on the corner of Jackson & 16th for their delicious Friday fish fry with Bell’s Brewery!

Yup….skip the old fashioned tonight & have a beer from Bell’s. They’re taking over the taps with your choice of their “Two Hearted Ale”, “Bright White Wheat”, “Official IPA”, and “Cold Hearted Ale”. Try one, try them all! And don’t forget to enjoy the incredible Friday fish at the Arterial!

They’ll have door prizes to hand out & you can find more info here.

Even though it’s still cold and there’s still plenty of snow on the ground, now is the time to think about your golf game! Maybe it’s time for new clubs? Maybe you wanna get more info on some of the courses in the area. This Saturday, you can find all your golf needs at the Greater La Crosse Golf Show in the Mathy Center on the Viterbo campus!

The event is on Friday from 3-8pm and on Saturday from 9am until 4pm. This event is a fundraiser for the Viterbo University Women’s golf team & you can check out various vendors & courses offering specials & discounts. There will be free gifts & giveaways just for attending. Try the putting contest & the driving contest! Raffles, equipment swap, and MORE!

Find all the info here.

Saturday night, if you’re looking for live music, there’s PLENTY in the area, but I suggest checking out “Jacked Up” at Stockyards Grill & Saloon in Coon Valley!

Jacked Up” play a nice variety of your favorite rock music from Godsmack, Black Sabbath, AC/DC, Black Crowes & more! Show starts at 8pm & you can find more info here.

On #SundayFunday, try winning some MEAT at Bottoms Up on the Nort’ side of town!

They are having a Meat Raffle starting at 1pm, so get there early, grab a beer and get ready to win some MEAT!

As always, there’s PLENTY of other events happening in our area this weekend and you can find many of them online at

And if you’ve got an event coming up that you’d like to see on, you can submit it for free HERE.
