Wicked History Pub Crawls
Advance purchase required
Baltimore Wicked History Tours runs 2 hour pub tours in Fells Point and Baltimore’s Mt. Vernon Neighborhoods.
Join Baltimore Wicked History Tours as we take you on back to when Fells Point was a colorful, dangerous place to visit, crawling with sailors, privateers, ladies of the night, and immigrants looking for a better life. Tempers ran hot with people who had nothing to lose and those looking to exploit them. But Fells Point had its bright spots with luminaries like Billie Holiday and Edgar Allan Poe roaming these historic streets. Come take our Fells Point history pub tour and crawl and experience Baltimore’s scandalous history! This is a Baltimore history tour like no other. Some might call it wicked.
Join us in Baltimore’s Mt Vernon neighborhood for a journey into the scandalous history of some of the most esteemed members of Baltimore society, from the Gilded Age to the Jazz Age. It was in Mt Vernon that Francis Scott Key died, and his second cousin, F Scott Fitzgerald drank himself nearly to death. Here Mary Garrett Jacobs ruled Baltimore society, and Wallace Warfield Simpson first worked her wiles. Mt Vernon has hosted kings and presidents, and not a few famous writers. Join us to revisit the intrigue of the past along these hallowed streets.
Baltimore is fast gaining acclaim for its craft beer scene. From Heavy Seas Brewery in Halethorpe to Baltimore’s own Union Craft and Brewer’s Art breweries, the Baltimore craft brewery scene is heating up! Beer has always been part of the fabric of Baltimore’s history- from Mary Pickersgill piecing together the Star Spangled Banner on the floor of a Baltimore malt house, to the German breweries that flourished in the city in the mid 1800’s, to the notorious crime wave that swept the city on the eve of Prohibition, Baltimore has a rich beer history. Join us for a 2 hour pub crawl to learn more about Baltimore brewing history, our Baltimore-specific craft beer, and the wicked history of Fells Point.
