the alter ego of San Francisco playwright and self proclaimed vampire,
Kitty Burns. Mina is the guide for a ghoulish and sometimes campy tour
through Nob Hill that turns San Francisco legends on their pointy ears.
Do vampires have pointy ears? At any rate, Mina's flight through the pages
of City history includes the skinny on Count Dracula's affiliation with
Emperor Norton, cannibals at Grace Cathedral, tunnels under the Pacific
Union Club, and ghosts at the Fairmont to name just a few. The 127 year
old undead Mina (who doesn't look a day over 110) has haunted the City
since the Gold Rush while Kitty is a 40 year resident. Another claim to
fame for Kitty is that she's the owner of the autographed program and untorn
tickets from the Beatles final performance that reside at the Rock and
Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio. The Fab Four's final public appearance
was at Candlestick Park on August 29, 1966. Kitty attended the concert
and got the rare memorabilia with the help of her father, an airline manager
and one of Mina's favorite mortals.
