The Storyline
1928 was the height of the roaring twenties. Our mystery puts us inside a popular speakeasy bustling with gambling, drinking and dancing. The owner is excited to be celebrating her last night but when the fellow who intends to purchase the establishment winds up dead, chaos ensues. We can't call the cops until we drink all the liquor (it is illegal after all) so in the meantime we'll see if we can't solve this heinous crime ourselves.

The murder mystery is a comedy and will at no time have guests frightened or confused.

Participation Encouraged
This event is an interactive murder mystery game. As a guest, you will be asked to participate in the mystery, search for clues, interrogate suspects and try to solve whodunnit.

Refunds
Refunds are available for cancellations up to one week prior to the party. You may give your seat to a friend if a last minute emergency prevents you from attending. Have them give your name at the door. Remember to let them know which entree option you have selected. In lieu of that, you may try to sell your ticket at https://www.ticketswap.com
