Legendary entertainers Kenan and Kel made theatrical history when they broke down the fourth wall, and then, to the consternation of the set designer, broke down the second and third walls as well. Experience the magic of the stage with today's Groupon: for $40, you get one VIP admission to The Dinner Detective, a murder-mystery dinner show at the Embassy Suites Hotel on Commerce Center Drive (a $78 total value). VIP admission includes a four-course dinner with nonalcoholic beverages (a $53.65 value, including tax), a keepsake water bottle (a $12 value), and a picture with the cast (a $12 value), as well as prizes for Top Sleuth and karaoke in the bar with the cast after the show. Audience members must be at least eight years old.
Put your detective skills and Jessica Fletcher tendencies to good use as a murder mystery unfolds throughout four scrumptious courses. Performances of The Dinner Detective are interactive, meaning the cracking of each case relies on the participation of audience members. A troupe of actors (theater, TV, and film-industry vets) will be posing as average patrons in the audience, causing even the most instinctually astute diners to throw around false accusations, make citizen arrests, and suspect their tablemates.
Gourmet appetizers will pique sleuthing skills, followed by a mixed-green salad to cleanse the palate before diving into a choice of entree. The menu proudly accommodates diners of diverse dietary persuasions, including carnivore-pleasing grilled top sirloin with cabernet-peppercorn sauce, lemon-pepper-artichoke chicken with mushrooms, grilled salmon with lemon-herb butter, and vegan-friendly rigatoni primavera with garden vegetables. Contemplate potential suspects between forkfuls of dessert or sips of complimentary iced tea and coffee. Other beverages and libations are available for a nominal fee.
