Update on time and location:

The ticket I purchased gave a start time of 9:00 p.m., so let's meet at 8:30 p.m. in front of the Columbia Restaurant on St. George St. (since everyone knows where that is). The start of the tour is only a 5 minute walk from the Columbia.

Don't forget to purchase your tickets for the event, also, by going here:

You can reach out and text/call me at[masked] in case you have trouble finding us.

Looking forward to seeing everybody there! :-)

Greetings, all!

Sarah D suggested a St. Augustine Ghost Pub Crawl (thanks, Sarah!) and after digging a little bit, there's a Groupon for the event! (there seems to be a Groupon for everything, these days :-)

I figured we can meet at the address listed above on St. George Street around 8:00/8:15 p.m., as the tour begins at 8:30 p.m.

They limit the tours to 14 people, and Groupon allows purchases of 2 or 4 people (for those who would like to pair up for the Groupon deal), which can be found here:

For those flying solo and wanting to meet up with the group, you can purchase the single ticket directly here:

The description:

 

Ghost tours reveal the hidden history of your town, such as which famous town hall is actually a ghost. Dig up some secrets with this Groupon.

A licensed guide, accompanied with their EMF meter, spins well-researched, historical tales of ghostly sightings as up to 14 adventurous spirits brave the undead spirits of three local pubs and two haunted grounds, typically a lighthouse grounds and a cemetery. Tourists spend 30–40 minutes at each pub before reboarding the Ford E350 van and traveling to the next location. Tours begin nightly at 8:30 p.m and last approximately 3 hours.

GhoSt Augustine’s motto is _carpe noctum_—seize the night. You can do just that on one of the company’s nighttime haunted tours. Groups hear spooky tales about local hauntings from a guide as they visit spirit-laden pubs and foreboding cemeteries. Along the way, guides demonstrate the use of specter-detecting EMF meters as well as full-spectrum video cameras and loud pots and pans to scare away raccoon spirits. GhoSt Augustine can also arrange stays at the Kenwood Inn, a bed and breakfast said to be the home of a friendly ghost named Raymond.

Looking forward to meeting up with everybody!!

    Well, Ian is possibly dying from the flu that is infecting the prison in the Walking Dead. We will draw straws on who plays Carl tonight after a beer or two.

    Anyway, it's still on and we are meeting up at the Columbia restaurant (see details for the address) and we will walk over as a group to the official location for the tour. If you get lost, send me a message or phone call at[masked] 9839. As a reminder, walking will be involved. You may not want to wear high heels tonight or else it may be a little uncomfortable for your feet. Weather looks like it will be 70 tonight with a clear sky.

    Btw, I'll be at The Present Moment Cafe in St. Augustine (224 W. King St.) before the pub crawl eating dinner, if anyone wants to stop by. This is my destination place any time I head down to St. Augustine, so feel to join the foray anytime between 6:00 and 8:00 p.m. :-)

      Thinking about this, really want to go but are drinks included?

      Hi Mindy, according to the website, the cost of the ticket includes 1 Free full-size Beer (import, craft or domestic) or wine or a non-alcoholic alternative. For a ghost tour, this is very reasonably priced.
