Murder at the Conservatory: An Orchid to Die For
Who will fall prey to some foul play? Looking to spice up your Valentine’s Day? Let us lure you to the Conservatory for a progressive dinner and murder mystery! Suss out the murderer and deduce their motive by exploring the gardens, searching out clues, and interrogating characters. Indulge your inner hedonist with heavy hors d’oeuvres and adult beverages while you wander the rainforest, desert, and corridors. Your ticket includes your garden admission, dinner, dessert, one drink ticket, entertainment, and investigator’s mandate. Cash bar will be available. Couples, singles, and groups are welcome. (Groups of 3 or more must register by phone at 427-6000.) Entry times are rolling: participants will be assigned to a small group and admitted at several-minute intervals so as to give each group access to clues and characters. When you register, please specify names of those you wish to be in your party. Registration deadline: February 2. Sponsored by WLDE.
