North Coast private dicks and dolls, don your detective hats and help solve a mystery when the Clarke Museum hosts a dinner theater fundraiser, Murder in the Museum, this Saturday, Feb. 17 at 5 p.m. at Bayside Community Hall ($55, $50 museum members).
Valentine's Day just wrapped but for those for whom it wasn't disastrous enough, there's always the St. Valentine's Day Massacre, when Al Capone's hoods gunned down "Bugs" Moran and members of his Southside Gang. At this evening of eats and shrieks, the 1920s roar to life and those fateful events are still fresh. Then another poor chump gets snuffed out. All of it plays out while you drink and dine with gangsters and molls milling about. Keep a keen eye on the events that unfold and help solve the crime after dessert. Tickets include dinner, a drink ticket and a commemorative photo, so snazz it up in your best fedora or flapper dress.
The caper comes courtesy of Murder By Dessert and the proceeds benefit the Clarke Museum. Music, singing, dancing ... and murder. Hard to say no to this Valentine request.
