Those who do not study history are doomed to repeat it, which is why most biology majors are plagued with déjà vu. Learn about the past with today's Groupon: for $25, you get two tickets to A Crooks Tour of San Francisco (a $50 value). Tours depart from the Ferry Building on Saturdays at 1:30 p.m.
On A Crooks Tour of San Francisco, a pair of guides leads guests through the dark and stormy chapters of the city's history, revealing 15 tales of murder, deceit, and lawlessness. Developed by crime historian Paul Drexler and retired deputy police chief Kevin Mullen, this 90-minute walking tour begins inside the Ferry Building Marketplace, before tourists are led outdoors to hear accounts of Barbary Coast, where victims were reportedly drugged, kidnapped, and forced to work at sea. They'll also learn about Confederate piracy in the San Francisco Bay during the Civil War and the mysterious disappearance of one of the city's police chiefs. Then, after one mile of touring, hearts will be thumping and goose flesh will be pimpling without the use of copyrighted Law & Order doink doinks.
