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 dinner and a brand-new whodunit performance by The Murder Mystery Company at Eamonn's Pub on Murray Street (a $60 value).
Exercise detective skills and untested telepathic abilities at the two-hour murder-mystery dinner, an evening of mock murder and faux fatalities unfolding over a three-course meal from Eamonn's. In between an introductory salad and a bread-pudding or ice-cream epilogue, guests can nosh on their choice of a sizzling steak, a plate of roast pork loin with mashed potatoes, a baked cod in lemon-butter caper sauce, or pasta primavera. As mouths occupy themselves, the comic mystery begins with a murder, with a detective arriving on the scene to locate the perpetrator in the audience. Work with tablemates to clear your good name, slyly sleuthing and sorting out clues while sketching out blueprints for a deer-stalker hat with integrated deer radar.
Though drinks are not included with this Groupon, there will be drink specials 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 the light-hearted night of death. It is recommended to arrive 30 minutes before the show; check the website for a full listing of showtimes.
