Next walks where anyone with $20 in hand and about four hours to wander the mean streets will be on Sunday July 26 and Sunday August 9. If interested, just show up by noon near the “L” sculpture, ready to go.
But there’s no need for a stampede — I figure I’ll do another tour later in August after I get back from PulpFest, and cover at least a couple of the Sundays in September (I’m waiting to hear from someone hauling in from New Zealand about which Sunday in September works best). I’ve already got a Sunday in October penciled into the log book, too.
