Mobsters and Lobsters tour mixes fine dining with crime history

The first ever Mobsters and Lobsters tour kicks off tonight, Thursday, August 18, and takes patrons through the city to learn about Boston's crime history.

Marcia Weaver knows a thing or two about Boston’s infamous mob scene.

Weaver, a Wellesley native, took her knowledge of all things Whitey Bulger and North End crime and compiled it into a specialized tour.

The “Mobsters and Lobsters” event kicks off tonight, Thursday, August 18, shuttling patrons from the Aquarium on a guided tour through Boston, stopping at all the formerly mob-crime-riddled spots, rich with mobster history.

After the tour, the trolley takes riders for a fine Italian feast and wine tasting event.

Following the one-of-a-kind, first-ever trip around town, which will discuss mob bosses breaking into safes, tourists can break into lobster tails.

Depending on the tours success, Weaver’s mobster crawl may launch a series of similar street seminars every Tuesday and Thursday.

The tour includes sites of historic heists, mobster hideouts and hangout, and old neighborhood locales shrouded in intrigue and mystery.

A portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit the Dorchester Youth Collaborative.


Trolley: Departs from Waterfront at the New England Aquarium a 6:30p.m., Thursday, August 18
