Gaslamp Museum at the Davis-Horton House

Paranormal Investigations

The Davis-Horton House: Alive with Spirits from the Past?  Find out for yourself. Touted by many as, “the most haunted house in the Gaslamp Quarter,” the Davis-Horton House has become a highly popular place for investigating paranormal activities — occurrences that fall outside of what’s considered normal or that can’t be explained scientifically. Paranormal research teams present evidence to support their claims of having made contact with several house spirits. They’ve recorded voices, taken photos, and shot video to document their surprising findings.  These other-worldly experiences are available to the public through monthly Paranormal Investigations tours, led by San Diego Ghost Hunters, a professional paranormal research team that conducts on-site investigations.

Since space is limited, we require that you make reservations and pay in advance for the Ghost Tour and Investigation.  You may make your reservation via our website, or you can call for reservations at (619) 233-4692.

Admission for this two-hour tour and investigation is $40.00.

When: Saturday, February 25 10:00PM – 12:00AM

Where: 410 Island Avenue, San Diego, CA 92101

San Diego Chinese Historical Museum

Chinese Computing and the Future of I.T.

Are the 75,000 characters in the Chinese language impediments to the fast-moving nature of modern technology, or are Chinese typists ushering in the future of computing? Award-winning Stanford historian, Dr. Tom Mullaney, will explore these questions through his captivating research of Chinese telegraphs, typewriters and computers. Co-presenter Scott Klemmer, Director of the Design Lab at UC San Diego, will discuss the background of these objects and explain how they relate to language, coding, and the richer ways we communicate and solve problems in the 21st century.

After the presentation, the audience is invited to view the San Diego Chinese Historical Museum’s pioneering exhibit from Dr. Mullaney’s collection of Chinese and Pan-Asian typewriter and I.T. artifacts, Radical Machines: Chinese in the Information Age.

When: Saturday, February 25 2:00PM – 4:00PM

Where: 404 Third Avenue, San Diego, CA 92101

A Good Trip w/ Shane Mauss

Hi! I’m Shane Mauss. Most comedians write biographies in the third person, but it’s kind of silly. Before I tell you about this show, it’s standard for comedians to gloat about their accomplishments: I’ve been a comedian for twelve years. Nine years ago I won an award for Best Stand-Up at the HBO US Comedy Festival and became a fulltime national (and sometimes international) headliner. Since then I’ve appeared on Jimmy Kimmel, Showtime, five times on Conan, and have specials on Comedy Central and Netflix.
