This weekend, John and I participated in a fun Murder Mystery Dinner. I spotted the deal on Living Social and thought that it would be an entertaining and unique activity. We sat with others at a table for 10 and worked as a team to solve the mystery. Audience members took roles in the plot of the story and we interrogated suspects. It enjoyed it so much! I'm happy to tell you that our team correctly solved the crime, too! Although the food at the restaurant hardly rated as fine cuisine, it was perfectly acceptable for the event. Whenever I go to a dinner theater or show, I'm going for the main event, not the food. I highly recommend this activity; it would be especially fun with a group.
