Bizarre Chicago, run by Bucktown-Wicker Park resident Gordon Meyer, offers unique and entertaining neighborhood walking tours. The top-rated and popular small-group tours focus on forgotten history, unexplained mysteries, and ghost stories.
OK, this tour is supposed to be about four independent bookstores. So why is this fifth, non-bookstore in here? It's a bonus! In the front of this equipment store for secret agents you'll find a fun selection of books and doo-dads. Many of the books are written by the kids at 826CHI -- an after school tutoring program for young writers. (Rumored to be headquartered behind the store.)
