Pokemon not the only game in town: Field Museum creates ‘warrior’ hunt

While many are obsessed with tracking down Pokemon creatures, the Field Museum has created its own treasure hunt.

The museum began giving out clues Wednesday on Twitter about the best spots in Chicago to spy life-size replicas of the real-deal terra cotta statues commissioned by Chinese Emporer Qin Shihuang thousands of years ago. He wanted “warrior” statutes to guard his tomb after he died. The treasure hunt is a promotion for the Field Museum’s special exhibit “China’s First Emperor and His Terracotta Warriors,” where some of the original terra cotta figures and two painted replicas are on display.

The first clue to

Apparently now that Cleveland finally has a real champion in the Cavaliers, nobody wants to pay full price to watch the Browns be terrible at football in person. So the Browns marketing people are getting creative. And by creative I mean they are selling discounted tickets to regular season games on Groupon.

Target’s Future Will Be Decided by Kids

For years, Target had pulled off a feat that made it the envy of retailers and “Tar-zhay” to its customers. It sold high design at low prices and gave big-box shopping some luster. Remember? In 1999 the architect Michael Graves introduced his witty postmodernism to the masses there. His stainless-steel teapots capped with a whistling bird for Alessi usually sold for $100; Target’s version, with an actual whistle in lieu of a bird, went for $39.99. Isaac Mizrahi designed clothes not only for Bergdorf Goodman, but also for Target. Long before HM, Target galvanized the designer collaboration craze, selling limited-edition

Georgia Aquarium Rejecting MasterCard Over PETA Protest

Atlanta, GA — MasterCard is no longer welcome at the Georgia Aquarium.

In a July 1 email to aquarium members, volunteers and supporters, aquarium chairman and CEO Michael Leven said MasterCard is endorsing a protest by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) over animal displays in accredited zoos and aquariums.

As a result, “Georgia Aquarium will no longer be accepting MasterCard online, and guests buying tickets in person at the Aquarium will be asked if they can use any other form of payment,” Leven said. “No guest will be turned away if MasterCard is their only option, but we
