‘Twas a dark and dreary night..

Actually – we’re not going to tell you a murder mystery story, that’s not what we do. But, we happen to know of some killer (see what we did there) murder mystery dinners that’ll have you sitting on the edge of your seat, suspecting whodunit and who don’t (not grammatically correct, sorry).

With fall and all things haunted around the corner, it’s time to whip out the ol’ magnifying glass again and start making accusations! Enjoy a bite or two while the story unfolds.

This is not the most ominous of all murder mystery dinners. The Dinner Detective performs hysterical Murder Mystery Comedy dinners so that you and all attendees can have a good laugh. However, these murder mysteries have an interesting twist… the cast members are in disguise and may be sitting directly next to you without you knowing.
