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.
