(What to Do With Them?)

Milwaukee's drastic seasonal changes are both a blessing and a curse when it comes to keeping kids entertained. Summer and fall are idyllic, with inviting parks and pools spread across the city and hiking trails along the area's rivers. And although the long winter months can drive many of us indoors, they also offer great opportunities for sledding, snowshoeing and ice skating. The gentle slopes of Bay View's Humboldt Park provide perfect spots for young sledders, and Red Arrow Park's outdoor ice rink is an inexpensive, lively skating venue...

This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, March 19, Ben Folds w/ Jukebox the Ghost @ The Rave, 8 p.m. With the Ben Folds Five abortion ballad “Brick,” Ben Folds scored his first major hit, a baleful departure from his usual goofball piano romps. Ben Folds’ solo career has swung back and forth between “Brick”-like confessionals and up-tempo...

Tonight @ The Mitchell Park Domes, 6:30 p.m.

If he were so inclined, Reverend Raven could go to sleep every night on a pile of the Wisconsin Area Music Industry Awards he’s earned since the ’90s as one of the city’s most popular blues players. His brand of barroom blues is cutting and capricious, marked by wild harmonica solos. The good Rev. regularly plays blues festivals...

Tonight @ The Mitchell Park Domes, 6 p.m.

Though the band mostly plays smoky corner bars, The Championship’s mournful Americana songs about long drives and long nights deserve to be heard outdoors. Tonight’s unusual gig where the group plays as part of the Mitchell Park Domes’ “Music Under Glass” series, is about as close as they’ll get, at least until the summer outdoor concert season kicks in, but the horticultural conservatory’s flora-filled landscapes should make a fine...

Tonight @ the Mitchell Park Domes - 6 until 10 p.m.

The Mitchell Park Domes had something to celebrate this year: A high-tech makeover left them illuminated by whirling beams of LED light, transforming the architectural landmark into a giant, animated Pink Floyd album cover. Though the dramatic light displays will be the talk of the gathering, this year's family-appropriate shindig, which runs from 6 until 10 p.m., also boasts live music, comedy and magic, as well as a holiday floral show.

Milwaukee icons illuminated

They frequently pop up on Internet searches and peak at you above billboards and byways, but when’s the last time you actually visited the Domes? The day of your high-school prom? Last Christmas? Never? Too long have these structures lain dormant, waiting to be redelivered to their...

Tonight @ the Mitchell Park Domes - 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM

Offering a Valentine’s Day alternative to the Midwest’s bitter, winter climate, the Milwaukee County Park System has converted the Mitchell Park Domes into a romantic oasis for their “Be My Valentine” event, lighting the domes’ exotic, flower-laden habitats with candles, offering wine and chocolate, and serenading . . .

Offer Food and They Will Come

A hungry crowd turned up for the Mitchell Park Domes’ annual “Restaurants Under Glass.” Guests wandered through the facility’s three domes while eating, sipping and enjoying the mini-trains rolling through a floral “Gulliver’s Travels” exhibit.
