    Ghost Tour of Princeton -- October 18, 2014, 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
    Join some hardy souls of the Men's Club for a Ghost Tour of Princeton. This is not a 'jump out & scare you tour' but is a chance to experience the Princeton University campus and the surrounding neighborhood with trained ghost hunters using real ghost hunting equipment.
    You'll be hearing stories from a wide range of testimonials we've accrued from students, faculty, police officers and residents. All sights have been authenticated as 'hot spots'. On campus, you'll use EMF Meters, dowsing rods and therma-meters on an unmarked burial ground.
    After we visit Princeton University campus and downtown Princeton, we'll enter the locked cemetery of Nassau Presbyterian church. History buffs will introduce you to the gravestones of Grover Cleveland, Aaron Burr, Jr., Paul Tulane and even the wealthiest undergraduate to attend Princeton!
    On the evening of your tour, show your e-ticket and enjoy three online foodie tours, an online trivia game and valuable discounts throughout Princeton. Details, including the discounts, here.

    Details: Location: Princeton University & Downtown Princeton. Meet At: Princeton University Store, Nassau Street at 6:45 PM. Fee: $25.00. RSVP. (Max Attendance: 10+) Contact: Todd Wachtel.
