You might consider a tour of Pier 39 to be the equivalent of slipping into a tub of fast-setting chowder with seafood flavoring, but the Fishermans Wharf Walk is part of Laborfest, and these people do not just reheat a Wikipedia page. This is a chance to discover the true workers' history of one of our iconic industrial hubs before it cornered the local market on key chains and T-shirts. Coming near the end of Laborfest's month-long celebration of the great battles fought by and for workers, the walk is led by Randy Bradner from City Guides, who is most assuredly not a slumming stand-up comic. The tour, which is not conducted on Segways, covers the canning industries, unions, women's labor, and the Italian fishing community. It also does not stop for bread bowls.
