Blood & Dumplings is the first new Crime Bus Tour of 2007, a grim and gleeful descent into the criminal history of the San Gabriel Valley, from celebrated cases like the Manson Family and Phil Spector to fascinating obscurities, including cranky Nazis, missing Salvador Dali paintings, hungry lions, concealed Black Panthers and the coolest trailer parks in the Southland. Included in the ticket price is a special stop for Chinese comfort food at one of the best dumpling joints in the area, 101 Noodle Express (note that this is not a lunch stop, but a late afternoon snack).
There are no paper tickets; your name will be on a list at the bus door. Passenger check in 12:30pm, departure 1pm sharp. Bus departs from Cypress/Lincoln Metro Station at 370 W. Avenue 26, Los Angeles 90031, and there is free parking on site. This tour is hosted by Kim Cooper and Richard Schave.
