Traveling to Madison?

For those of you traveling to Madison to see the Pios this weekend, you'll probably be disappointed. One of Madison's premier tourist destinations has been closed down according to Roadside America.

Cress Funeral Home managing director Andrew Johnson has confirmed that Sam Sanfillippo's dead animal dioramas of dead, beer-drinking squirrels and topless chipmunks is no longer on public view at the funeral home. Andrew was apologetic, but said that the attraction simply became too popular for its own good.

"Too many visitors were arriving in the middle of a [funeral] service, eager to have a good time," he said. If there's any consolation, Sam's creatures haven't really gone away, they're stored in the Cress Funeral Home basement. 

Don't be discouraged because there is another fine option available for your spare time.

Take a leisurely drive to 3594 East Washington Avenue, Madison to visit a monument dedicated to the King, Elvis Presley. While visiting in Madison in 1977, Elvis Presley stopped at a local gas station to break up a fight between 3 individuals. This event became such legend in Madison that it is permanently memorialized. 

Enjoy your stay in beautiful Madison, Wisconsin.
