Comedy Murder-Mystery Dinner Theater in Minnesota

“I’ll Be Homicidal For Christmas” – Manitou Grill, Delwood Country Club and Owatonna Country Club

It’s December 23rd, 1978.

Albee Humphrey used to be household name, but these days his star is fading. He’s got one last shot at his big comeback – with a network televised Christmas special. There’s celebrity guests, variety acts, and there’s even rumor of a reunion with his former comedy partner – who he hasn’t spoken to in 20 years. He’ll be using members of his studio audience as extras, so you may even find yourself getting in on the act!

This is his last chance to be a star again. He’ll either make it back on top…or die trying!

The Mystery Cafe dishes out a hilarious comedy caper, where you and your table are invited to solve the crime…all while enjoying a delicious 3-course meal.

Upon arrival, you’ll be seated by members of the cast. Clues are all around, and you’ll also be provided with “Mystery Money,” so you can bribe characters for more information.

The evidence points to one answer, and a prize is awarded to our “Super Sleuth” winner. We also give prizes for the most…shall we say…“creative” answer. Right or wrong, you’ll be laughing all the way to the solution. Whether or not you crack the case, you’ll certainly bust a gut!
