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 help solve whodunnit.
