Calling all gumshoes and super sleuths--the Grove Hotel has a case for you. This Halloween, the hotel will partner with the Wishing Star Foundation for a one-night mystery event dubbed Murder Mystery Night at the Grove Hotel. Turns out there has been a murder, and it's up to you to find out who dunnit. Participants will spend the evening searching for clues and putting the pieces together until the culprit is caught. The answers are hidden in the details so don't forget your oversized magnifying glass.
After the puzzle has been pieced together, contestants will meet to determine which suspect they should point their collective accusing finger at. Prizes will be awarded to the winners, and afterward, a dessert auction will be held courtesy of Chef Lou of West Side Drive-In fame. Though the cost is more than a typical Halloween outing, the end result is more rewarding. All proceeds go to the Wishing Star Foundation. All ages are invited to the event, and costumes aren't required but are encouraged.
Saturday, Oct. 31, 6 p.m.-9 p.m., $60 per person, $450 for a team of 8, The Grove Hotel, 245 S. Capitol Blvd., 208-472-3352 or 208-345-3008, firstname.lastname@example.org.
