Esotouric Tours Presents: Haunts of a Dirty Old Man, Charles Bukowski's Los Angeles

August 12, 2023

11:00 AM - 3:00 PM

Tour meets at Hill Street Patio at Grand Central Market (near Horse Thief BBQ)

Parking: Grand Central Market Garage at 308 S Hill Street

Join Esotouric’s Kim Cooper and Richard Schave; the Skid Row historians featured in “Crime Scene: The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel,” for a wicked walk-through of LA.

“Haunts of a Dirty Old Man: Charles Bukowski’s LA” focuses on Bukowski’s great passions: writing, screwing and Los Angeles. We’ll take in the canonical locations of his life and myth: the Postal Annex Terminal, where he gathered the material for “Post Office,” the De Longpre apartment, where he briefly experimented with marriage and fatherhood (and which your tour guides helped save), the cathedral-like Central Library, an iconic SRO apartment residence and many other spots. Along the way, we’ll explore the people and ideas that made up the warp and weft of Buk’s rich inner life.

Tour begins at 11am sharp, with check-in time 10.30am at the patio outside Grand Central Market at 324 S Hill St, Los Angeles, CA 90013. Please arrive on time and proceed to the check in table to get signed in, logged in to the smartphone slideshow, and grab a good seat on the bus.
