Named the best show of its kind in Los Angeles and Denver for four years running, The Dinner Detective arrives in Chicago to serve up a tasty whodunit along with a seated four-course dinner. And since this comedic murder mystery is set in the present day, you'll never know whether someone at your table is one of the talented cast of improvisers. In fact, everyone's a suspect -- including you. The event starts out with a reception featuring tray-passed hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar, followed by the meal, which includes salad, an entree and dessert. Between courses, you can expect plenty of murder, mayhem and hidden clues coming to light as you puzzle through the crime. This special Goldstar offer includes admission, dinner and a commemorative mug. And the top sleuth even wins a prize package at the end of the evening.
