Lovers of mystery novels and whodunnit movies are in for a treat at these murder-mystery dinners hosted throughout the year at different Cape Town restaurants – at the end of which the murder culprit will be revealed.
How it works
Once you have booked for one of the dinners, you will receive an email a week before the event with information about your character (personality, profession and background). At each table there are eight characters (suspects), while inspectors (the organisers of the dinner) walk around, offering clues and facilitating the process.
A minimum of two is required when booking: you can get a few friends together to form your table of eight, or you can join some strangers to make a group. On arrival, you are offered welcome drinks (which would be for your own account) during which the dead body is discovered (no staged crime scene, as that would be a little too grim), and the mystery party begins. Clues are presented with each course and, by dessert, the murderer is revealed.
So go ahead and book your table! Someone has to solve these dastardly murders.
