The crime committed most often during mealtime is reaching over someone else to get the salt, which is why it's always a welcome distraction when a murder is committed instead. Enjoy a side of mystery with your meal with today's Groupon to the Inn at the Olde Silk Mill in Fredericksburg. Choose between the following options:
• For $75, you get two tickets to dinner and a murder-mystery show on Saturday, June 25 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. (a $150 value).

The Inn at the Olde Silk Mill's picturesque property enriches its guests with lush historical surroundings, first-rate accommodations, and lively dinner theater. A preliminary wine and beer tasting inaugurates the festivities, loosening jaw bones with locally crafted creations before hearty plates of barbecue comfort cuisine incite a swift stampede toward any on-site bib salesmen. To the rhythmic tune of the audience's synchronized chews, a capable cadre of professional board-treaders alight upon the stage for The Trusty Keg, an interactive, Western-themed murder mystery replete with raucous live music and a belly-sloshing hoedown. Postshow high jinks include prizes for the best Western-themed outfit and worst attempt at snagging an actor's wig.
Road-weary guests can indulge in an overnight stay among Olde Silk Mill's historic antiques and ambiance while taking full advantage of its turn-of-the-millennium amenities such as free WiFi, cable TV, and refrigerators in every room. The inn is within walking distance of many historic landmarks, stores, and restaurants as well as the exact location where Benjamin Franklin invented the $100 bill.
