Join us in Grass Valley for a special pop-up evening of Odd Salon featuring the weirdest stories from local lore and intriguing tales from the lawless heart of the Golden State.
Odd Salon Gold Country Edition ~ GOLD, MURDER & SPIRITS
Six stories of debauchery and defiance, scandalous dancers and the unquiet dead
California was built on high stakes and loose laws, the lure of instant riches attracting the brilliantly innovative and the morally questionable to create towns full of ambitious outlaws and those with an instinct for opportunity… towns like this one.
The Gold Country of the bad old days was rich, perilous, and conveniently far from the long arm of the law. Join us for an evening of stories of the men and women who flocked here knowing they could end up rich or they could end up dead, but either way it was going to be a wild ride.
Sean Sanford ~ Black Bart: The Fine Line Between a Thief and a Gentleman
