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 Philadelphia has ceded its place as the capital of the United States to Washington, DC, 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, scandals, ghosts, and pirates, on walking tours that have made the Philly Hot List three years in a row. Their narration blends historical facts and local insight while making stops at shadowy spots such as a theater that was once a mecca for ladies of the night, the site of the city's first bank robbery, or historic watering holes.
