Haunted Milwaukee bar may appear in Netflix show (video)

MILWAUKEE (AP) - An historic Wisconsin  bar with a reputation for apparent paranormal activity could appear in a new Netflix series.

Shaker's Cigar Bar in Milwaukee's Walker's Point neighborhood has been listed as the fifth most-haunted bar in America.

It was a Speakeasy, where illegal liquor was sold during prohibition in the 1920's.

It was actually built in the 1800's, when it also served other customers who reputedly never left.

"We had people attempt to spend the night all night in the dead hooker's bedroom upstairs and about 10 percent are successful.  I've had other things, you'll be up there and hear like stilettos walking back and forth, obviously the person next to you is still asleep you look around there's nothing there," owner Bob Weiss told WISN.

Nanny sought for 'haunted' house,..pays very well

If you're a childcare professional who is looking for a terrifyingly good job opportunity, this spooky nannying gig might be right up your alley.

A family of four living in Scottish Borders is seeking a live-in nanny whose duties would include "preparing breakfast, getting the children ready for school, dropping off and picking up from school."

The job would pay 50,000 pounds per year (about $64,000) and would offer 28 vacation days.

The only catch? The house they live in is supposedly haunted.

From the job posting on childcare.co.uk:

"We have lived in our home for nearly 10 years. We were told it was 'haunted' when we bought it, but kept our minds open and decided to buy the house regardless. 5 nannies have left the role in the last year, each citing supernatural incidents as the reason, including strange noises, broken glass and furniture moving. This has obviously been a period of great upheaval for our children."
