Favorite Haunts 

Wednesday, Sep 9 2009
Ghosts are usually benign, at least compared to vampires, zombies, aliens, and the other life forms that populate X-Files reruns and FOX News. Nonetheless, when you have the sneaking suspicion that you are not the only occupant of your home or office, who you gonna call? The San Francisco Ghost Society, whose time-tested philosophy of “flexible skepticism” combines Bay Area open-mindedness with careful scientific investigation and diligent historical research. The volunteer organization doesn’t charge for its services, but electromagnetic field meters and crank lights aren’t cheap, you know. Today’s adults-only benefit, Witch’s Brew 2, features burlesque by Marie La Faux, psychic readings, a raffle (prizes include a ghost hunt), and music by 5 Cent Coffee and the Slow Poisoner. Next-generation spookspotters will have several opportunities to get in on the fun in October, when the Ghost Society presents “Ghost Hunting for Teens” at libraries around town in the days leading up to Halloween.
