$69 for Murder-Mystery Show for Two ($129 Total Value)

The evening includes the following:

  • Two tickets (a $119 value)
  • Two keepsake mystery magnets (a $10 value)<p>

While the show goes on, couples will dig into a four-course meal, complete with a garden salad, soup of the day, and an entree, such as chicken cordon blue, beer-braised barbecue short rib, or a grilled-vegetable platter. Mystery Cafe Dinner Theater’s current show is Crime Pays, which follows a mob-imbedded family in Las Vegas who run a popular radio show as well as dubious exploits on the side. The players interact with the audience throughout the evening, encouraging them to spin a game-show wheel while attempting to solve the rib-tickling mystery.

A new show will begin around January or February 2013. Shows run Friday and Saturday nights at the Imperial House at 8 p.m. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. Customers select their entree when they make their reservation. This Groupon is not valid for performances in the month of December.<p>
