A favorite across the country, The Dinner Detective serves up a tasty whodunit along with a seated four-course dinner at Eddie Deen’s Ranch in Dallas. And since this popular comic murder mystery is set in the present day, you’ll never know whether someone at your table is one of the talented cast of improvisers. In fact, everyone’s a suspect, including you. The event starts out with a reception featuring tray-passed hors d’oeuvres, followed by the meal, which includes salad, a buffet with entrée and dessert. Between courses you can expect plenty of murder, mayhem and hidden clues coming to light as you puzzle through the crime. The top sleuth wins a prize package at the end of the evening — not to mention serious bragging rights.

One hotel suite, four tenors, two wives, three girlfriends and a soccer stadium filled with screaming fans. What could possibly go wrong? It’s 1930s Paris and the stage is set for the concert of the century — as long as producer Henry Saunders can keep Italian superstar Tito Merelli and his hot-blooded wife Maria from causing runaway chaos.
