This 90 minute historical walking tour gives you a humorous glimpse back in time to the tattoo parlors, bars, former brothels. Learn about the lusty ladies who worked in the neighborhood and about how they eventually went on strike for better living conditions! This tour features adult content and some really bad puns.
