Crooks Tour of Chinatown
This unique 90-minute walking tour takes you into Chinatown's sinister past: Sex slavery on Bartlett Alley, hidden gambling dens on Ross Alley, and the fabulous Ah Toy shack on Waverly Place. As your tour guide leads you through Chinatown, you'll see rare images and videos projected onto historic buildings. You'll also learn how hatchetmen and highbinders made this area the most dangerous in the city. The tour is approximately 1 mile and occurs every other Friday night beginning on Oct. 31. You'll meet your tour guide at 6:30PM at Red's Place, 672 Jackson Street. See schedule for available dates.
Dress for the weather. It can be cold and windy at night. In the event of rain the tour will be postponed. For questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 415-713-3077 and ask for Paul.
