Call it a Nightmare on Wells Street. But, if you're even the slightest of arachnophobes, take comfort in the fact that the new "Spiders Alive!" exhibit now open at Milwaukee Public Museum, 800 W. Wells St., doesn't take inspiration from the museum's butterfly wing.
For this past holiday season - as well as the 25th anniversary of "Home Alone 2" - the museum added a bobblehead of the most skin-crawling keys to Kevin's makeshift home security system/torture chamber to its official store.
A lot of Wisconsinites complain about the cold and snow, but given the choice, would we move to a warmer climate if we could? There are definitely trade offs - including that many places with higher annual temperatures also have a larger population of bugs. Which would you prefer: snow or bugs?
My kid got picked to take home his school's tarantulas for the holidays. Lucky, lucky me.
