Event description

Description

Escape the everyday and enjoy a unique weekend of mystery, romance, and fun! Friday night will feature the classic romantic fantasy “The Princess Bride” (7-9pm) in the Mansion’s Library, along with complimentary popcorn and a cash bar. Guests can also challenge each other to a game of pool, shuffle board, or cards in the basement Rec Room.

Saturday night’s audience-interactive Murder Mystery Dinner (6:30-9:30pm) will create a night of conspiracy for an “Unlucky in Love” couple — “The Baron and Baroness are hosting an engagement party for their only daughter who is marrying her Prince (only he’s just a Count). Is everything as it should be? For whom is that detective working? Who is the strange woman who seems to know the Count so well? Is this an engagement for a wedding, or a murder?” It will be up to you to question all the suspects, look for clues, eavesdrop on conversations, and solve the mystery!
