NO CHEESE LEFT BEHIND ADVENTURE WEEKEND
A FOUR DAY FOODIE ADVENTURE IN MADISON, WI FOR SINGLE WOMEN!
*You are a judger, whiner or not ready to work on your shit. That is the reason why we are here.
*You don’t like swearbears. When I am passionate about something the swearing flies.
And man, I am fucking passionate about this…..see what I did there? 😉
then read on about the fun we are going to have, Hot Pants…
We are taking over downtown Madison, for 4 days/4 nights (June 20th-23rd).
It looks like this. It is between two beautiful lakes and absolutely gorgeous.
If you are from out of town and need a place to stay, we will be staying at the Concourse Hotel on the Capital Square where we can walk to the best restaurants and sites in the city. We actually will not be getting into a vehicle for 4 days. Everything is that nearby!
We are going to have so much fun while you are here. Let me tell you all about it! The weekend is one part smart sessions + one part action with working on how to get yourself out there more + eating amazing food!
Fly, drive, bus, or unicorn in whenever you want on Wednesday. I will be at the hotel at 5 pm with smiles, hugs and the best Welcome to Wisconsin gift bag full of our local favorite foods and goodies. It will be epic!
We will be kicking off the retreat right with a Cocktails + Crafts Welcome Party at the amazing Revel Madison where you will get to personalize your very own unicorn craft for the weekend. Yes, I said UNICORN CRAFTS!
We will walk over to dinner at a classic Wisconsin restaurant called The Old Fashioned (yes after the drink, it was started here). This is the best place to start in Madison. I mean, the tagline is “Where Wisconsin is King!” They serve everything that our grandmothers would make in Wisconsin but about 10 times more delicious and locally sourced.
Oh, and they have the best cheese curds in town…
Wait! You don’t know what fried cheese curds are? They are delicious fresh cheese dipped in batter and fried. They are Wisconsin’s gift to the world!
Smart Session #1
Today is all about connection. How we connect with others and how to connect deeper. In the morning we will talk about emotional and physical availability and how to make sure you are being available and attracting it. You may be surprised.
All of our sessions with be at the Dream Bank. A super cool space in downtown Madison with monthly themes. This is how cool it is!
Lunch will be at Graze. Regional cuisine by James Beard award winner Tory Miller. Almost everything on the menu will tell you what farm it is from and the food is amazing. The soft pretzel with 3 different local mustards and cheese is a must!
Smart Session #2
In the early afternoon we are going to talk about vulnerability and the importance of not only being vulnerable but making sure you are coming off as vulnerable to others too. If people don’t know how to fit into your lives, they won’t stay. True story.
Action Time #1
After session you will have the option to go on a short faux date with my favorite single guy in the area, Jake! You will be video taped to be able to go back and watch your body language and if there is anything you need to work on. I fully realize that this seems like a fresh level of hell, but the takeaways are hugely beneficial to learn how you come off on a first date. This is worth the price of the retreat alone.
This is Jake with his dog, Musa. Isn’t he cute?
Dinner will be later that evening at my favorite small plates restaurant on the square, Graft. This is a great way to share with others and get lots of wonderful tastes. It also has one of the best macaroni and cheese dishes I have ever eaten…
Smart Session #3
Communication is everything. The way we communicate with new prospects or dates is many times the deciding factor of if we move forward or not. How we respond online, to text or in person makes a huge difference and we want to make sure we are coming from a place of love, not fear. By the end of this session you will know what to do about bootie calls, dick pix with honesty and kindness!
Lunch will be at Marigold Kitchen where you will die over their salads and sandwiches and their coconut macaroons! Everything is soooo good.
Smart Session #4
This afternoon is all about dates! Great first date strategies and mindsets that will get you the best results and keep you sane! We are also going to dive in on what to share and when to share so you are not sabotaging without even knowing it!
Action Time #2
We are practicing our communication techniques at an escape room! I fucking love escape rooms and we will be doing one as a group to practice communicating boundaries, our needs and having fun in the process. Woohoo!
Will be on your own! So grab a new friend, go order room service or just explore the capital and their 20+ restaurants on your own. I will make recommendations but you can barely go wrong…
Action Time #3
We are starting the morning off right at the amazing Dane County Farmer’s Market, which is just out the front door of our hotel! It is the largest producer only farmer’s market in the country. You will get to try yummy foods and talk to farmers and cheese makers.
Plus, did I mention that there is a team checklist with fun tasks to accomplish? For fucking awesome prizes? Oh, it also helps you practice talking to people and build confidence. Winner, winner, cheese dinner!
We will grab a late brunch at my favorite restaurant, Heritage Tavern! Where James Beard Nominee, Dan Fox, will change your life with the most beautiful fresh food you have ever tasted. You can have the Hazelnut French Toast with Wisconsin Maple Ice Cream or an Old Fashioned Ham Cinnamon Roll. Yes. There is ham…in a cinnamon roll. It makes me tear up thinking about it.
Smart Session #5
This afternoon we are going to dig into body language basics. Understand how you are carrying yourself, what it is saying about you and what to notice in others. We will get to understand what may have worked on your date with Jake and what didn’t. This shit is genius and life-changing!
Action Time #4
You will get a few hours off to explore or rest up and then we will walk a few blocks over to Shake the Lake! A Madison Music/Food and Fireworks Festival! We will have tickets to the private rooftop party and get to practice some of our new skills with a fun team checklist! We will listen to live music, have the chance to buy dinner and drinks at some of Madison’s best food trucks and just have fun our last night together!
Oh and of course I will be supplying unicorn horns and glow in the dark accessories. Here is a pic from last year!
Head back to your hotel, sleep off the yummy food and drinks and head home in the morning! After the retreat I will be sending you a copy of your date and a personal action plan for next steps.

“Any opportunity to work with Kira live and in person is an absolute must. No Cheese is no different. Not only are there copious amounts of cheese (oh, the curds!) and delectable eats, No Cheese offers a fresh and unique perspective on Kira’s dating wisdom. The faux date was truly an eye opening experience.”
Learn about yourself. Push yourself. Become a better you. No Cheese Left Behind did all of that in a delightful atmosphere with scrumptious food, and you get to leave with a new outlook and friends!
When you are ready to let go of the excuses, the No Cheese Left Behind experience will reshape your perceptions of self, relationships, and what you really want in life. Delivered with her trademark energy, honesty, and refusal to let you BS yourself, Kira dives in deep right off the bat ensuring that every moment of the No Cheese Left Behind experience is valuable and that you know exactly how much she cares about your relationships success, no matter its form or shape.
The Owners Manual is great, and No Cheese Weekend feels like part 2 where the rubber meets the road! Had a blast with some amazing women in a cool town while I uncovered some deep truths about myself. Kira is so creative and dedicated; you don’t want to miss it!
“One of the most fun girls’ weekends I’ve ever had! The deep dive with Kira helped me uncover my dating fears on a whole new level. And the time I spent hanging out with my new friends taught me even more — that we all have struggles, are all awesome women and that we’re not alone in this journey. It was seriously awesome.”
I KNOW YOU ARE PRETTY FUCKING EXCITED ABOUT THIS…
The Dane County airport (MSN) is totally small but kick-ass airport with direct flights to and from New York and other places. Prices are a little more expensive but you can find great deals. If you are staying at the Park Hotel, they have a free shuttle to bring you to the hotel and take you back to the airport when you leave.
The Mitchell Airport (MKE) is about 90 minutes from Madison with bus service to downtown Madison. Once you fly into MKE, you can grab a Badger Bus for about $23 each way to drop you off about a mile from the hotel. A quick Uber/Cab can get you there in about 5 minutes. It takes about 2 1/2 hours to get to downtown Madison from MKE.
This is probably the most affordable option if you live far away, but check Madison/Milwaukee too, you may be surprised. I suggest you fly into O’Hare since it is a little faster to get here. Once you fly into O’Hare there is a bus that leaves for downtown Madison every 60 – 90 minutes for about $30 each way from Van Galder. This bus takes approximately three hours to get to downtown Madison.
Kira can help with all of this information. Just ask!
You only need a $250 deposit today to hold your spot!
Once you sign your contract, we will figure out a payment plan that works for you.
The Concourse Hotel is one of the most successful independent hotels in the country and a perfect location for the retreat.
The hotel includes:
All Concourse Premier rooms include:
Single rooms are available. Contact Kira for prices.
