The Murder Mystery Company forces diners to discover latent detective skills during an evening of faux fatalities that unfold over a three-course buffet. Between an introductory garden salad and a clandestine epilogue of a fittingly secretive dessert surprise, guests nosh on rotating buffet fare such as slow-roasted beef with brown gravy or grilled chicken breast in mushroom sauce served with long-cut green beans, garlic mashed potatoes, and homemade yeast rolls. (Vegetarian options are available upon request.) The sudden death of one of the waitstaff interrupts the feasting, and a hapless detective arrives to accuse one of the audience members. Tablemates work together to clear their good names and allocate blame on whoever took the last biscuit, slyly sleuthing and sorting out clues while scanning the room for guilty eyes and ready-to-flee hairpieces.
Though drinks are not included with this Groupon, investigators can indulge in numerous drink specials. Afterward, each participant will receive a photographic slide show of the performance to put in their case file or show at their next Clue fan-club meeting.
