    By Night Mafia and Blues Tour

    First, you will visit the chilling spot where the St. Valentine's Day Massacre murders took place and talk about the events that "lead" up to it. You'll learn about prohibition and how it still happens today in a different form and see how the music of the slaves known as the Blues became a powerful tool to help grow the Mafia in Chicago. Next you will explore some of the bars and nightlife that now dominates Chicago's north-side and will make a stop at a legendary bar previously owned by Al Capone, a Chicago Landmark. There will be some time to enjoy a drink (not included) and possibly some live music in the spirit of the 1920s. This tour will then end with a short sightseeing drive to enjoy the view of Chicago's skyline at night.
