See Schnucks' Giant Cart!
Oh, Cracker Barrel, we love you (and your hash-brown casserole)! But we're sad because your quaintness is false -- all 500-plus Barrels have the exact same vibe. And that kind of "genericana" is just what artist Erika Nelson wishes to combat with her traveling exhibit of "The World's Largest Collection of the World's Smallest Versions of the World's Largest Things." She's bringing her vast-but-tiny collection here and checking out some of the area's big things, like our bowling pins and ball, and Collinsville's ketchup bottle (or, more accurately, "catsup" bottle). And you can check out Nelson's tiny things at the City Museum (701 North 15th Street) Saturday and Sunday (March 5 and 6) and at other places around town through March 9; check www.worldslargestthings.com for exact locations -- maybe our giant Vess bottle can be one of them!
