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 as a speakeasy patron and to help solve whodunnit.

You may get a full refund for cancellations up to and including September 14. No refunds thereafter. However you are welcome to give your seat to a friend should a last minute emergency or illness prevent you from attending.

Recommended Dress (Encouraged but not required)
Gangster and Flapper Attire of the 1920s. Search "1920s Costume" for ideas.

*Can I get a discount if I purchase an entire table of seats? Yes. If you send a single check for $480, you will get eight seats - a full table. Send one check accompanied by a phone number, email address and the number of guests having chicken and the number of guests having beef. Please email me in advance to ensure that I have availability.
