Old Sac Speakeasy Tour This Thursday


Ever wanted to check out the first version of Sacramento—the one that’s beneath our current streets thanks to consistent flooding in the 1860s and ’70s? That’s right—back in the 1800s, city leaders decided to raise the city streets up 10 to 12 feet . . . an undertaking that took 13 years to complete. And now, we can take tours of what Sacramento used to be. The Downtown Sacramento Partnership’s Old Sacramento Speakeasy Tour takes place this Thursday, May 27 at 6 p.m., and includes not only learning about Sacramento’s original “underground” scene, but also sippin’ on some jazz-era cocktails. Sounds informative, interesting and fun! The tour costs $10 per person (not including those tasty beverages), and begins at the River City Saloon at 916 2nd St. in Old Sac. RSVP now by calling (916) 442-8575 or e-mailing jbeckner@downtownsac.org.
