Melanie Whitlow, her husband Steve, and their son Vincent are moving from Milwaukee's Riverwest neighborhood – where they resided for many years – to Vancouver, Canada this summer. On The Lily, she details her reasons and writes about the "7 places she’ll miss."
She’ll miss The Domes, Scardina Specialties, the Milwaukee Public Museum and more. But, I have to wonder – based on this 2014 interview by Molly Snyder, will she leave the boa behind with her family, or will it cross the border with her to Canada? Hmmm.
Boa or no boa, safe travels and remember – Milwaukee’s always home.

He owns a condo in Downtown and lives in greater Milwaukee with his wife Stephanie, his son, Jake, and daughter Pierce. He's a political, music, sports and news junkie and thinks, for what it's worth, that all new movies should be released in theaters, on demand, online and on DVD simultaneously.
He also thinks you should read OnMilwaukee each and every day.
