The Murder Mystery Company's thrilling performances challenge diners to exercise detective skills in an evening of mock murder and faux fatalities that unfold over a three-course meal. Between an introductory house salad and a French vanilla ice cream dessert denouement, each guest noshes on a selection from Brann's signature entrees, including an 8-oz. sizzling steak brushed with garlic butter, a 1-lb. rack of steaming pork ribs slathered with honey barbecue sauce and arranged in the shape of the true killer's initials, or a mesquite-flavored grilled tilapia fillet served alongside a baked potato.
As mouths occupy themselves, the comic mystery begins with a murder, and a detective arrives on the scene to locate the perpetrator in the audience. Totally 80's, Totally Murder adds intrigue to the proceedings by transporting its audience to a deadly concert during the decade of excess. Tablemates work together to clear their good names, sleuthing and sorting out clues to flex critical-thinking skills and prepare themselves for futures as presidents of the Agatha Christie fan club. Drink specials throughout the evening fuel detective skills for solving the mystery of what the bottom of one's glass looks like.
