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 $25, you get one ticket to dinner and a whodunit performance by The Murder Mystery Company at Brann's Sizzling Steaks and Sports Grille (a $55 value), located on Leonard.

Put your detective skills and untested telepathic abilities to good use at the two-hour murder-mystery dinner, an evening of mock murder and faux fatalities unfolding over a three-course meal from Brann's. In between a garden-salad starter and an ice-cream ending, guests will nosh on their choice of a sizzling six-ounce steak, a rack of barbecued pork ribs, or a mesquite-grilled tilapia fillet. While mouths are busy with the cuisine, minds can clue in on the trouble afoot. The comic mystery begins with a murder, with a detective soon arriving on the scene and suspecting all audience members as the possible perpetrator. Work with your tablemates to clear your good name, slyly sleuthing and sorting out clues to determine the identity of the killer. Is it the invisible butler that only you seem to be able to see, or could the heart of a homicidal maniac linger within the cardigan'd exterior of your elderly dinner date? Anybody and everybody is a suspect.
Though drinks are not included with this Groupon, there will be drink specials available during the show. Lap up your libation as you look around the room for guilty eyes and enjoy the theatrical thoroughness of The Murder Mystery Company. All patrons will receive a photo slide show from the performance as a way to fondly remember the light-hearted night of death.

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.
