Life is full of unanswered questions, such as who really built the pyramids, where swiss cheese gets its holes from, 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 Woody's Diner in Royal Oak (a $60 value).

Murder-mystery dinners exercise detective skills and untested telepathic abilities in an evening of mock murder and faux fatalities that unfold over a three-course meal. In between an introductory salad and a mystery dessert epilogue, guests nosh on their choice of entree, including a half slab baby back ribs, New Orleans pasta, fettuccine alfredo, garlic lime chicken, or sirloin steak, all of which are served with sides such as garlic bread, rice, or fresh vegetables. As mouths occupy themselves, the comic mystery begins with a murder, and a detective arrives on the scene to locate the perpetrator in the audience. Tablemates work together to clear their good names, slyly sleuthing and sorting out clues to flex critical thinking skills and prepare them for futures in real-life crime.

Though drinks are not included with this Groupon, drink specials are available during the show. Lap up libations while scanning the room for guilty eyes and hairpieces preparing to flee at any moment. All patrons will receive a photo slideshow from the performance as a way to fondly remember light-hearted, death-themed eves. Arriving 30 minutes before the show is recommended; check the full listing of showtimes online.

The Murder Mystery Company

It's not every day that a dinner with friends risks a murder accusation. That's a good possibility for the guests of The Murder Mystery Company, who find themselves in the middle of a investigation for which any one of them could stand accused by a hapless detective. During each interactive dinner, the company's troupe of professional improv actors ignites the dining room with entertaining outbursts and hilarious one-liners in an effort to divulge clues and redirect guilt. Meanwhile, guests work together to sniff out the real culprit, which is definitely not the school janitor in a mask. Birthday parties, bachelorette celebrations, and corporate events can also get in on the interactive action by scheduling a private murder-mystery dinner.

Yes it was fun. The people who had the most fun, got up and played along. If you just sit there, you can still have fun. It is much better to get involved with the play.
