A tour of a city sometimes exposes the corruption that shaped it, revealing why its sidewalks have tollbooths and City Hall is built out of mashed potatoes. Carbo-load on historical tidbits with this Groupon.

Grim Philly’s guides use intensive research and their eye for vestiges of the city’s bold and bawdy past to weave a narrative of wintry carousing from the Roman, Celtic, and Christian traditions. Meanwhile, they’ll pass through the city’s bar district and stop into three taverns for food and beverage samples and drink specials. Guests can expect to learn about the history of holiday staples such as mumming, caroling, and mistletoe as their guides conjure up the ghosts of pirates, privateers, and ladies of the night. Tours depart Saturday at 6 p.m. from the Old City Mexican Post.

Grim Philly

Though Washington, DC, has taken Philadelphia's place as the capital of the United States, it remains a bustling metropolis rich with American history. Grim Philly's tour guides—all of whom have at least a bachelor's degree in history—dredge up past centuries' landmark events and scandals, even ghosts and pirates, during their 75-minute walking tours, which made the Philly Hot List three years in a row. Their narration blends historical facts and local insight, with stops at a theater that was once a prostitution mecca for working girls of the night, the site of the first bank robbery, and Independence Hall.

The tour seemed well thought out, and researched. He even gave us a few ghost stories, ones that he could verify through a source,
