A Frightful Experience: Sisters Grimm Dinner and Ghost Tour
Published: October 2, 2013
The tour’s jumpy vibe was a bit hard to maintain once the outdoor portion kicked off (imagine walking through downtown alongside high-heeled club-goers), but the information was free flowing. Led by Swartz’s husband James and their Australian sheep dog, Obi-Wan Kenobi (Obi for short), the group made its way to historical spots including San Fernando Cathedral, the Spanish Governor’s Palace and the former Bexar County Jail (which has found new life as a Holiday Inn Express). Each stop featured a boatload of info on past events and a ghost tale or two.
Did I see an apparition or connect with a see-through baddie? Sadly, no, but I did learn a lot about San Antonio while walking a hole through my chanclas. For history buffs, traipsing the streets of SA and learning about forgotten locales usually obscured by the bright downtown lights might make up for the cheese-factor; believers, on the other hand, might face the spirits of the city or find out exactly what happened to our lost tour members.
