The Nanaimo Museum is sponsoring an entertaining tour of Nanaimo’s oldest pubs on Monday, August 23, 2010. A tour guide will take participants on an historical walk through downtown and the Old City Quarter with brief stops at three of Nanaimo’s oldest liquor establishments. All participants must be at least 19 years of age. Tour begins at the Nanaimo Museum, 100 Museum Way, at 7 pm and finishes at 9:30 pm. Pre-registration and payment is required. The cost per person is $15 (museum members receive a 15 percent discount). It’s a great way to experience some of Nanaimo’s most colorful drinking places in good company while learning a few things about the city’s history. Call Bobbi Williamson at 250-753-1821 to sign up.
