As you can see, the line-up is ambitious - and if this isn't the largest
Paleo gathering in the midwest, it will soon grow into the largest. 
Even so, we're very committed to putting on the best program for as low

frequent visitor to Milwaukee Public Museum (happy to support both of
them!) but can't help feeling like we're kicking hiney big-time on this
