It’s the roaring twenties! Everyone has money, and life is free and easy. It is a dynamic age. Motor cars, movies, radio and all manner of modern appliances and inventions are hitting the streets and amongst it all, the flappers are parading their redefinition of womanhood, with bobbed hair, ever shortening skirts and a release from the traditional corsets. In America, Prohibition is still in full swing and while it makes alcohol a difficult commodity to attain, it certainly isn’t impossible.
Mickey Scapone is boss of one of the largest gangs responsible for importing the contraband. He owns Swingers, arguably the most popular speakeasy in all Chicago. From bodyguards to sassy jazz singers, alcohol to fine dining, this hip club has everything. And tonight – it even has a murder. Mickey Scapone, the big boss himself, is dead.
The only problem is – who killed him?
Grab some friends and come to the Eagle ARTwalk for a Valentine’s Day Date Night Murder Mystery. Your $20 ticket for a team of two will get you a guidebook to local businesses on Broadway where you will meet suspects like Robyn Folks, Tony Tortellini, and Bonnie Enclyde. Once you have had a chance to interview them all, turn your “Whodunit” guess in at the Swinger’s Speakeasy where there will be food and drinks, a live Jazz band, and more! Teams who solved the murder correctly will be entered into a drawing for some great raffle prizes.
Guests are encouraged to dress the part and there will also be prizes for best costumes, so pull out your zoot suits and flapper dresses!
PRICE IS $20 PER TEAM OF 2 PEOPLE IN ADVANCE BY FEBRUARY 13. (Tickets at the door the night of the event will be $25 per team of 2)
All sales are final and proceeds benefit EAGLEarts, a non-profit organization that seeks to enhance the quality of life in Eagle, CO through the development of Arts & Culture.
