Esotouric's Pasadena Confidential

Mar 21, 2009

Esotouric bills itself as “the eclective bus adventure company.” Sounds interesting, right? Awesome. This weekend they bring their knowledge of Los Angeles County crime to the east side. Our beloved Pasadena is full to the brim with true crime, something that Esotouric wants us to remember.

Tour guide Kim Cooper says, “I believe every neighborhood gets the crimes it deserves, and Pasadena’s dark side is suitably rife with rocket scientists driven mad by their work, wealthy eccentrics coddling pet chimps and bears, seemingly respectable families misbehaving behind tall hedges and a general air of genteel psychic decay.” Of course, Crimebo the Crime Clown will make an appearance on the tour. Fascinating and creepy (both the tour and the clown).

If you can’t make this tour, be sure to check out its whole season, ranging from literary tours like Raymond Chandler and Charles Bukowski, to particular crimes like the Black Dahlia. Very interesting stuff.
