Life is full of unanswered questions, such as who really built the pyramids, where swiss cheese gets its holes, and what the "J" in Michael J. Fox stands for. Get to the bottom of a solvable mystery with today's Groupon: for $29, you get one ticket to a two-hour dinner and whodunit performance by The Murder Mystery Company at Chaffin’s Barn Dinner Theatre (a $60 value).
The Murder Mystery Company forces diners to discover latent detective skills during an evening of faux fatalities that unfold over a three-course meal. Between an introductory soup du jour and an epilogue of apple streusel, guests nosh on buffet items such as carved roast beef and hearty lasagna, served with steamy sides such as green beans, corn bread, and suspense-flavored crab cakes. A hapless detective interrupts the munching after a mysterious death, bent on proving the guilt of nibbling 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.
