I saw this deal on GROUPON and could not wait to give it a go for one of me and Hubby's date nights! 2 tix $59 was a great deal considering the normal price was roughly about $50 a ticket! First off, the location is great, IKAROS Restaurant, which has awesome Greek food. If nothing else, go to this event and enjoy the food! The theme of our Murder Mystery was Murder at the Doo Wop (A 50s theme prom). We came dressed for the THEME, whereas, many people DID NOT. Which I hate! Either case...they have you wait in line to take a "mug shot" at the beginning of the night, you are then seated at a table with approximately 4 other couples, and served a three course meal throughout the event. Prior to the event startin the Troupe will come around and randomly put "special" hats on audience participants to play a role in the mystery and they are then"a suspect". My hubby was selected as one of the suspects, but to be honest with yall...most of the time he had no idea what was expected from him outside of a few lines they wanted him to read from a binder on the table,. The acting of the Troupe was pretty terrible in a campy, cheesy way, but I kinda expected that, so I was'nt upset. Overall, this was a cool experience, we actually had a lot of fun and cant wait to do it again! The food and drinks were awesome, service was great, convenient location, free parking.Annnd, I was relieved to know that my Hubby "WAS NOT THE MURDERER"...LOL ...The only reason for not giving it 5 stars...Did'nt like the long wait to get into this event. We waited 2 1/2 months to get an opening. This event gets booked up waaaaaayy in advance. The company has a terrible cancellation/rescheduling policy...(NONE)lol....If you do TRY to reschedule they charge u $15 a tix to change to another date (ROBBERY). Also, I was under the impression we would leave with a pic (assuming it would be the mug shot), but at the end of the nite they tried to get us for $20..(almost as much as my ticket?... please ... Ill pass)... Otherwise, its a good date nite and family outing alternative. Worth checking out!
