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 today’s Groupon: for $69, you get an evening for two at Mystery Cafe Dinner Theater at the Imperial House Restaurant (a $129 value).

$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)

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—either chicken cordon bleu, 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.

Mystery Comedy Dinner Theater

As San Diego’s oldest interactive mystery-comedy dinner theater, Mystery Cafe Dinner Theater dazzles audiences with live comedic mystery performances. Each show boasts an interactive format in which actors engage with the audience, possibly involving them in plotlines and using them in cameo appearances.
