Messina Hoff: Murder at Twilight – Saturday, October 31 at 7:00pm
Trick-or-treating is for kids, solving murders on the other hand? Join Messina Hoff for their well-known Murder Mystery Dinner on Halloween night.
In the last three weeks, vampires around the world have been murdered at an alarming rate by a fellow vampire of unknown identity. The leader of the International Vampire Coven has called an emergency meeting at Messina Hof Winery and Resort.
Before the date of the dinner, you will receive a character assignment to help you decide on a costume. Once there, your host will set the stage and guide you through the story as you dine on a three-course meal each expertly paired with one of Messina Hoff’s award-winning wines. In between courses, interact with other characters and collect clues to catch the murderer, or if you are the murderer, then duck from suspicion.
Who will you be?
