Vice, Crime & Vigilantes
Tuesday, November 19
Join us for an evening dedicated to the notorious, the infamous, and the criminal masterminds of San Francisco's past.
San Francisco is a city with no shortage of criminal escapades -- From the original gangs of the Barbary Coast to the self-appointed vigilantes mobs who stalked them, the opium dens and the legendary secret tunnels of Chinatown to the most notorious mobsters who found themselves locked up on our island penitentiary.

We've met some of the criminals, and touched on some of the crimes, but join us for an entire evening dedicated to the city's dirtiest laundry, and stories of murder and mayhem and stagecoach robbery, local criminal masterminds, and little known episodes from the police blotter.
