Crime and Pun-Ishment: An Evening of Murder and Mystery


Jealous, jilted lovers, a rival Mafioso, and a pair of undercover feds make an appearance at this speakeasy and not a single person is muttering a word! Help find out who’s on the level and who’s on the lam by trading clues with your guests, gathering information, and solving the crime before the murderer hotfoots it out of there!

You'll enjoy a cocktail reception, three course plated dinner, and an entertaining (and often times hilarious) performance! For an evening of murderous mayhem and added fun, don't forget to dress in your favorite 1920's attire!
