    Shady Chicago: Ghosts and Gangsters of Hustlertown (PG13)

    Get ready to wet yourself...Not because you’ll be falling into the Chicago River (hopefully) during this kayaking adventure, but because of the terrifying tales that you’ll hear along the way. This evening excursion will have you paddling through downtown, where on either side of you dark buildings and notorious legends loom large. Get a unique perspective at the urban environment that crafted by the likes of Johnny Torrio, Jim Colosimo, and Al Capone. You’ll also learn about many of the reportedly haunted spots along the way - relics of the city’s bloody past. Whether you’re first time kayaker, or have some experience, you’ll be in good hands thanks to the trained and experienced adventurist that’ll serve as your guide. However, if a semi-transparent Al Capone pokes his head out of the water … paddle faster.
