    NOTE: The location has changed for Post 501’s brat fest scheduled for Sunday, May 19, 2019, 10:00 am - 3:00 pm. It has moved from Metro Market to Post 501, 105 Dempsey Road, Madison, due to pending inclement weather.
     Tables are available inside the clubhouse so you can sit and enjoy a fresh off the grill brat and/or hot dog.  The full brat meal at $5 includes chips (just don't take the Cheetos - one of our volunteers needs those to get through the day :) ) and a soft drink or water.
     Stop in after an exhausting morning of grocery shopping. You don’t have to cook lunch that day. Bring your family and lots of relatives and friends.  If you are on the job that day, don’t forget to treat your co-workers or better yet, bring a truckload of your fellow workers with you.
    We offer Johnsonville brats $4 (full meal at $5), hamburgers $4 (full meal $5), and hot dogs $2 (full meal $3).   All come with or without buns, condiments, and full meals come with soda or water, and a wide selection of salted chips. 
    Plenty of room for parking your car/bike so drive, bike, or walk -- better yet - run in on foot for a reasonable priced lunch of Wisconsin brats, burgers and hot dogs.
     Want to have some fun socializing with fellow veterans? Then join us in the serving line or for setup, or cleanup at the end.  If you can provide an hour or two of your time on a Sunday morning, we’d really appreciate your helping out.  It would be great if a veteran who served in Iraq or Afghan could provide an hour or two of your time on a Saturday morning, we’d really appreciate your helping out.  We do need the additional support due to the popularity of this brat fest location.
    Because of the popularity of this brat fest, we encourage you to come early due to the fact that in the past we have run out of the famous Johnsonville brats.
     Next Brat Fest is Sunday, May 26, at Metro Market.  
          Thank you for your support of American Legion Post 501.
