School me on the drum-and-bass scene: where, and when?

Help me find a quality drum and bass/jungle festival to attend in the next 12-24 months (or a fun city to visit with weeklies/clubs/options for hearing a variety of heavy, bass-driven music... but not so much dubstep). Preferably somewhere in Canada or the U.S.; other ideas welcome, as long as they're worthwhile and not scary-expensive. [more inside]

We'll always have Milwaukee

The Hubs and I are driving to Milwaukee today to watch the Brewer's game at 1pm. I'm told it will be done by 4:30. After that we want to hang out in Milwaukee a bit and have dinner before driving back to Chicago. Neither of us know all that much about Milwaukee besides where the baseball stadium is. I would like to do something even mildly interesting and/or unique and/or tasty. What would YOU do?

Can you recommend interesting/quirky/entertaining daytrips or guided tours?

I went on a really good "alternative" day trip to the Scottish Highlands with this company when I was in Edinburgh last week, and am now looking for recommendations for entertaining and offbeat guided tours and daytrips in other places. There are some good suggestions here for walking tours but I'm also interested in bus/coach/cycling etc.

I'm going to be in Venice for the next week and a half! Please give me some recommendations for food and sightseeing. Thanks!

Hi all. I am looking for recommendations for food in Venice (anything from a Paninoteca to a Ristorante). I've read that it is difficult to find good food in Venice, so I'm hoping the Metafilter hive mind can help me out. In addition, any recommendations for sightseeing would be great. Especially non-traditional/off the beaten path stuff. Thanks again.
