Beyond the Veil: Spiritualism and the Occult

Saturday, September 23, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. - 100 Years before the hippies, we had our own seekers after hidden knowledge, including some well-known city fathers and a congressional candidate! Last year’s sold out success is being reincarnated for one night only. We’ll meet sincere followers of Blavatsky, Crowley, Swedenborg and others, and a few double-jointed con artists preying on the gullible. With special guests, if the spirits are willing…

The tour costs $10 per person and tickets will be sold online only at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3079477. Note that no tickets will be sold at the gate.

Beer & Baseball

Saturday, July 15, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. - Brewers and ballplayers have always gone together, especially in Sacramento.
