L.A. Bus Tour Bums Out Its Customers

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A Los Angeles bus tour is doing its best to bum out its customers – literally.

Esotouric Tour Company is offering a guided bus tour honoring writer and self-described “dirty old man” Charles Bukowski, whose life of booze, broads, and boring jobs took him to the shadiest parts of Los Angeles.

Customers will enjoy the seedy sights of L.A.’s bum- ridden area called Skid Row, and get to hit up some of Bukowski’s favorite dubious bars on the tour, which cruises from August 15th-19th.

If this seems sad or scary, that’s because it’s meant to be.

Tour organizer Richard Schave explains: “It’s Charles Bukowski, so its not going to be a feel good, sugar- coated tour. I hope it’s depressing.”

The celebration of “publication and inebriation,” as Schave calls it, is open to all, maybe even a bum or two.

Says Schave: “We won’t bring bums on the bus, but if they have an interest in Bukowski’s work, they’re welcome to come.”
