What You'll Get
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 $29, you get one ticket to a two-hour dinner and whodunit performance by The Murder Mystery Company at Empress Tea Room and Bistro (a $60 value). Performances are currently scheduled at 7 p.m. on select Fridays and Saturdays in September and October.
The Murder Mystery Company challenges diners to exercise detective skills and fledgling telepathic abilities in a comedic evening of mock murder and faux fatalities that unfolds during a three-course meal. Between an introductory salad and a mystery-dessert epilogue, guests nosh on one of three of the Empress Tea Room & Bistro's main-course munchables, including options with fish, chicken, or vegetables fashioned to spell out a ransom note. As mouths occupy themselves, the mystery begins with a murder, and a detective soon arrives on the scene to locate the perpetrator in the audience. Tablemates work together to clear their good names, slyly sleuthing and sorting out clues, flexing critical-thinking skills, and preparing for futures in real-life crime. All patrons will receive a photo slideshow from the performance as a way to fondly remember light-hearted death-themed evenings.
