July 16th:  It’s a Mystery! Murder Mystery Dinner Show

It’s time to hit the high seas for a bit of R & R. We’ll visit exotic places, taste tantalizing cuisine and meet fascinating people. Make a point of meeting Casha Coindexter Manypenny, heiress of the Manypenny Meat empire, and her son, Sonny. Don’t miss the opportunity to rub elbows with royalty when you are introduced to Duke Stone Opalopoli and his lovely bride, Gemma. Other interesting passengers include Ponder Porterhouse, the Cold Cut King and Poppie Pendergrass, Sonny’s future wife and Casha’s present aggravation. Activity Director, Windy Gale Zephyr will keep us entertained aboard the U.S.S. Mystery of the Sea.

With so many colorful characters on the cruise, this will be a memorable vacation. Let’s hope we avoid choppy seas and cranky passengers, for that is a recipe for trouble. In the event of a shocking crime, it will be up to you and your table of fellow sleuths to discover who could commit such an evil deed. So, think of a clever name for your table, er, detective agency and listen carefully for clues. At the designated time, your agency will be asked to formulate a question that your delegated chief detective will ask a suspect. Once all tables have completed their questioning, each detective agency will submit a solution sheet indicating “who done it” and why. The first agency to name the most correct motive and culprit wins!!

Join us for an exciting, fun filled night of Murder, Mystery, & drama while enjoying dinner & your favorite Hinnant wines.  Reservations are required in advance.

Tickets: $55 general public, $50 for Wine Club Members (includes Admission for one, dinner, dessert, & one glass of wine)

Door Prizes & prizes for the winning detective team will be provided by Hinnant Family Vineyards & Winery.
