Murder Mystery Dinner Party

Fun, food and friendly detecting are elements in a murder mystery dinner party. A murder has occurred so gather four couples to dine and detect who is the murderer…and it is one of you. 

Eat, Drink and Be Married set in a tiny Las Vegas wedding chapel featuring Virgen White, E. Z. Ryder, Ruby Lipps, Rock King, Dee Vorst, and Rev. Hal Fyre.


You may come in costume or just wear special nametags to identify your character. Visit over hors d'oeuvres and non-alcoholic bubbly or bring your own wine. Each person receives a script as a guide. There are suggestions for questions to ask but creative thinking is encouraged.

Diners should remain in character throughout dinner. People seem to really get into it as dinner progresses.  Even the murderer does not know he/she is the one until late in the mystery. Logical thinkers, creative thinkers and people who just like to be characters will have fun trying to finger the guilty person. After dinner you can visit as long as you like.

Here are sample menus. You can make changes or suggest foods you would like. Coffee and hot tea or iced tea will be available.  A variety of hors d’oeuvres will be served when you arrive. All bread and desserts are homemade. The price is $23 per person. Call 712-254-2254 or e-mail lavon@metc.net for reservations.
