Murder Mystery Party

OMG. It was a hoot!

It was my brother-in-law's 50th birthday and after searching the web for a decent "Murder Mystery Party" I found  Dinner and a Murder. Impressed with the attention to detail and the fact that they also have a website where you can send character profiles and invitations electronically, I ordered the boxed set for about $60 US. "Murder at the Four Deuces" was chosen largely for the fact that it would be less of a hassle to get guys to dress up as gangsters.
Set in the late 1920's prohibition era, a murder occurs at the grand opening of The Four Deuces, a speakeasy with very close connections to the mob. Guys were dressed as gangsters and girls were flappers. As anticipated, the guys were cool with the dress code.          

Fortunately, (The Birthday Boy) Inspector Neville 'The Nose' Nutella just happened to be attending the gala event as part of an ongoing investigation.

In total,fourteen guests attended the Grand Opening of The Four Deuces. The color scheme was black, red and white, the food was Italian (of course) and the atmosphere was hilarious.

What fun and you're right about the gangsters. I am so weary of the boys playing mafia on facebook and posting it ad infinitum.

That looks like SOOO much fun! As usual, the decor is marvelous.

I have "Go to a murder mystery dinner" on my list. I'll have to get right on that!
