When: Sat., Oct. 31, 6-9 p.m. 2009
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’s 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. Was it the bartender? The maitre d’? Or that crazy ol’ hobo in the street? The answers are hidden in the details so don’t forget your over-sized 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 afterwards a dessert auction will be held courtesy of Chef Lou of West Side Drive-In fame. Though the cost is more than one would spend on a typical Halloween outing, the end result is more rewarding. All proceeds will go to the Wishing Star Foundation, who in turn will use the money to grant ailing children’s wishes. All ages are invited to the event, and costumes are not required but enthusiastically encouraged. So if you think you’ve got the gumption to be the next Sherlock Holmes, Murder Mystery Night is your chance to prove it. Here’s a hint—it wasn’t Col. Mustard.
