New Link Directory URL

General

There may be some of you wondering where our link directory went. Well, with the new site and sections, we had to change many of the URL's you may have bookmarked and linked to. We apologize for the inconvience, but fear not! The link directory is still up and running. You can now find it at: HauntedWisconsin.com/information/links/ If there are any new links you'd like us to add to the directory, send us the name, description, URL and category and we'll get them added.

New Event Directory

General

The new event information pages now have quick links to maps & directions which give a Google map, along with direct links to reviews (coming soon) and the event web site. The enhanced listings also have direct links to photos (gallery) and video. The new event directory gives a brief description of each event along with the type of event, location...

Bartz's - New Waukesha Location!

Halloween Hodgepodge

Good news for those of us who shopped at the Bartz's in Brookfield. While at  the Westbrook Shopping Center (E. Mooreland & Springdale Rd.) Andy and I spotted what looked like the Bartz's logo. We checked it out and saw signs in their windows saying they would be opening soon. They'll be in  the old (Joanne?) fabrics store where Halloween Express was located e a couple years ago. We peaked in the window and saw some Halloween decorations set up.To help build our excitment for the upcoming season, we had a tradition of going to the Bartz's in Brookfield a couple weeks after...

Bartz's - Brookfield Location Closed

Halloween Hodgepodge

Unfortunately, Bartz's closed their Brookfield location this year, so anyone who used to frequent that store (like Andy & I) will now have to travel to Greenfield, Menomonee Falls or Wauwatosa... or just find another party/Halloween store to check out. Since the Brookfield location always seemed to have some stuff out right after the 4th of July, I did some calling to find out when their Halloween merchandise will be out. It sounds like it will be at least a couple of more weeks till some items are out. However, costumes are always in stock. :P

And so it begins. . .

Johnny a.k.a. "Big Daddy"

Every year, I wait upon baited breathe, for the arrival of the first Halloween merchandise of the season! And every year, to my surprise, it has arrived earlier and earlier. Last year, I began checking for Halloween stuff around the end of July. Fortunately, I was able to find items that began trickling in at the local Wally World, Targea, and Michaels. This year, I had a feeling; call it intuition or a 666 sense. . . But on June 28, I stopped off at the Michael's on hwy 100 and National Avenue . . . low and behold, HALLOWEEN...
