  • Cool Music Festival, LLC. 2012
    Nationally renowned tenor saxophonist Kirk Whalum's silky-smooth, gospel-soaked jazz nuzzles ears in a Valentine’s Day concert. At a release show for his new album, Romance Language, Whalum commemorates the passionate holiday with saxwork that sends amorous euphonies floating over the audience and foam-tipped darts toward insufficiently lovey-dovey couples. Whalum's decades-long career has taken him to sessions with top singers—including an appearance on Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You"—and collected him 11 Grammy nominations and one win. The Hilton’s full bar loosens toe-tapping muscles and lubricates tongues left dry from absentmindedly snacking on handfuls of programs, and guests can upgrade to dinner and hotel-stay packages by registering in advance.

  • Dinner Detective - Portland
    Eschewing the over-the-top costumes and writing that typify many other murder-mystery dinners, The Dinner Detectives’ cast of improvisational actors blends in with audiences, holding secrets tight to their chests while steering each night’s tension-filled storyline. After a diner is found murdered, a resident detective helps lead the investigation, allowing guests to interrogate one another with Tickle Monster tactics to distinguish the culprit among the crowd of fellow diners and dissembling thespians. Multicourse meals keep bodies well fueled during spurts of crime-solving intuition, and a prize basket awaits the gumshoe who comes closest to solving the case.
