FREE Ghost Walk Tour of the Palace Hotel

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

I have always loved having the bejesus scared out of me. When I was little I used to read the book Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark over and over which seemed to concern my Grandpa, who called me a 'œghoul.' I remember being a little offended by that, but to this day I get a thrill from freaking myself out, especially around Halloween. If that makes me a ghoul, then so be it!

That said, I have often scoffed at 'œghost tours,' chalking them up to something only quirky tourists do. The Ghost Walk at the Palace Hotel strikes me as a different, classier, spookier version, and I thereby deem it awesome. Perhaps it’s the combination of history, scandal, and fancy hotels that gets me going, but I can’t wait to wander the 'œstately corridors' in search for the supernatural!

Ali was born and raised in the Wholesome/Creepy capital of the world, Salt Lake City, UT. Once she was old enough to blow that pop stand she escaped to the place that was the anti-SLC: The Peoples Gay-public of Drugifornia aka San Francisco (holla 30 Rock!). You can now find her throughout this glorious city slurping Pho and scheming with her best friend Pinky doing what they do every night; try and take over the world.
