Dinner Detective Sacramento
Between rounds of a custom four-course meal, the Dinner Detective’s guests set their well-fed brains to sussing out who among them is a murderer. Groups of up to 80 dine on appetizers of vegetable spring rolls and steamed potstickers with hoisin sauce, warming them up for a high-energy, comedic investigation led by skilled improv actors posing as detectives, audience members, and talkative teapots. As guests dine on entrees, such as broiled salmon with lemon-dill sauce or vegetable ravioli with artichoke pesto and fire-roasted tomatoes, additional murders happen and clues are revealed. The best sleuth in the audience receives an award, with a dessert of cheese cake soothing the egos of audience members certain that Colonel Mustard was the culprit.
