Murder and Merriment Mystery Dinner Theater Company

Vinoklet is so excited to announce two new shows in this year's Mystery Dinner Series. Both evenings in October will be centered around Halloween featuring a different show each night.

As many of you know, these shows usually sell out sell-out fairly quickly. Because of the continued success of these events, Vinoklet is hosting another set of shows and we asked Murder & Merriment to Join us again in October for two more unique Mystery Dinners in the series. For those of you that have made them all so far, let's keep the ball rolling and for those of you that are new, we look forward to seeing you and welcome you with open arms.

Yes! This is also the perfect opportunity to dress up in your favorite Halloween costumes; Thursday is set in the 1940's and you can come dressed as though going to a 1940's movie screening of "Return to Horror Island", and Friday you get to dress up in your favorite Halloween costume!.

As always, you can come by yourself, as a couple, or bring your friends and book an entire table for what promises to be an exciting evening full of fun, food, wine, Murder & Merriment!
