The Boston waterfront is famed for seafood and for seedy gangland crime. In fact, the Whitey Bulger trial is unfolding right now at the waterfront Joe Moakley Courthouse.
Those two seemingly disparate worlds come together in the “Mobsters and Lobsters” trolley tour, dubbed “the tour you can’t refuse.”
It visits “Boston’s historic heists, mobster hideaways and hangouts, including locales frequented by Whitey and other members of the Winter Hill gang,” according the tour’s press release. “Guests will hear tales of thievery and scams, mayhem and cover-ups, and untimely demises. The tour concludes with a wine tasting at Boston’s only winery – and New England lobster dinner – with the option of a fine Italian meal.”
A portion of the tour benefits the Dorchester Youth Collaborative.
The next tour is tonight. But it’s already sold out. If interested in future tours, or to schedule your own group tour, call 617-274-4715, email [email protected], or visit www.mobstersandlobsters.com.
Here are the details from Mobsters and Lobsters:
WHERE: Trolley departs from the Waterfront on Atlantic Ave in front of the Marriott Long Wharf Hotel and visits historic sites throughout the city, including: Lancaster Street garage, Parker House, Triple Os Bar, Rotary Liquors, and more.
The tour concludes with a wine tasting at the Boston Winery and then dinner at Venezia Waterfront Restaurant, both located at 20 Ericsson Street, Boston
WHO: Tom Collins, South Boston native who grew up in the D Street Projects and East 6th Street during the Whitey prime-time era– driver and tour guide
WHY: As Whitey’s name plasters headlines nationwide, this one-of-a-kind tour will focus on destinations of Whitey’s intriguing, sinister past. The tour reveals the city’s unique intermingling of mobsters, law enforcement and politicians.
