On television, criminal investigators are slick and relentless, which explains why most kids want to grow up to be cops, actors, or a pair of sunglasses. Shine like a snooping star with this GrouponLive deal to an interactive murder-mystery dinner from The Dinner Detective at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel Omaha Downtown. For $39, you get a murder-mystery dinner package (up to a $65.37 total value) that includes:
- One ticket for general admission to any performance (up to a $45.42 value)
- One souvenir mug (a $19.95 value)
Interactive shows take place year-round on select Saturdays at 6:15 p.m. Buyers must pay an additional $17.27 in taxes and fees when making their reservation.
Eschewing the over-the-top costumes and writing that typify many other murder-mystery dinners, The Dinner Detective’s 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—including a choice of herbed chicken breast, salmon in mustard sauces, and vegetarian gnocchi with broccolini and sun-dried tomatoes—keep bodies well fueled during spurts of crime-solving intuition, and a prize basket awaits the gumshoe who comes closest to solving the case.
