Dinosaurs Live!

By Jess D'Amico in Arts & Entertainment on Dec 5, 2007 8:45PM


Need an original idea for a hot (read: nerdy) date or just an escape from the city this weekend that includes dinosaurs?

The Walking with Dinosaurs exhibit won't be showing in Chicago, but it is open today through the 9th in Milwaukee at the Bradley Center. Tickets are a little pricey, $35-70, when you could just buy the DVD for less than $50 online and stay toasty at home, but really, how can you beat watching the cinematic effects and "real" dinosaurs live? You just can't.

In related dinosaur news, we told you on Monday that paleontologists have unearthed the most complete mummified fossil of a dinosaur ever found. Paleontologist Phil Manning continues to crack us up with bon mots, calling the discovery the "holy grail" of paleontology and saying "this specimen exceeds the jackpot." Love it.
