A favorite across the country, The Dinner Detective serves up a tasty whodunit along with a seated four-course dinner. And since this popular comic murder mystery is set in the present day, you’ll never know whether someone at your table is one of the talented cast of improvisers. In fact, everyone’s a suspect, including you. The event starts out with a reception at San Francisco’s Le Méridian Hotel, featuring table-served hors d’oeuvres, followed by the meal, which includes salad, an entree and dessert. Between courses you can expect plenty of murder, mayhem and hidden clues coming to light as you puzzle through the crime. The top sleuth even wins a prize package at the end of the evening — not to mention serious bragging rights.
Every murder mystery admission ticket includes: an interrogation reception, hors d’oeuvres, fresh rolls and butter, a field greens salad, your choice from three entrees and dessert, coffee, wait staff gratuity for food service (gratuity for beverage service not included), a commemorative mug (valued at $19.99) and an intriguing prize package for the top sleuth who comes closest to solving the crime. There’s also a full bar if you would like to purchase cocktails.
Business casual or dressy casual is absolutely required: no T-shirts, shorts, baseball caps or torn clothes. For the Halloween show, costumes are encouraged.
