Groupon customers receive a drink and 10% off their food purchases for an evening of history and hauntings at the Morgan Street Brewery. Master storyteller David Riordan weaves stories about the city, from its founding 250 years ago to the present day, including quirky and little-known details such as the area's ghost sightings. He's joined by musician Charlie Siebert, who plays folk tunes in the tradition of St. Louis music. Shows begin on Friday, April 25 and will run on Fridays from 6:30 p.m. to 8:45 p.m. Couples can head to a show for a date, but they're also appropriate for families.
“St. Louis is the fourth-most-haunted city in America,” David Riordan, your tour guide said on a tour covered by Narratively. David is a renaissance man who's been a commodities trader, lawyer, and Spanish real-estate seller, and now-owner of St. Louis Haunted History Tours. It was his time in Spain that inspired him to become a tour guide. He practiced his storytelling on the English-language radio station he bought and then began leading homespun tours through the small, picturesque town of Frigiliana.
But when the Spanish economy soured, he moved back to his native St. Louis. Now he draws on his natural talent for storytelling and leads groups to tourist attractions and haunted corners of the 250-year-old metropolis. Along the ghost tour, David unravels chilling yarns about events that inspired The Exorcist, the St. Louis Fire, the cholera epidemic, and spirits that still roam the streets, asking people which bus they should catch to get to the afterlife. The less spooky city tours explore the UNESCO World Heritage site Cahokia Mounds, as well as Forest Park and the Cathedral Basilica.
David also puts his storytelling skills to use at his History & Hauntings of St Louis shows. Accompanied by a folk guitarist, he regales crowds with tales of the city's history. "St. Louis is full of great stories, and I love to educate and entertain people," he told the Riverfront Times. "It's not just ghosts and spirits, [it's] the brewery, steamboats, gangsters."
