NEED INPUT! Would you pay $40 per person for a Murder Mystery Dinner. Price includes dinner: Your choice of steak and lobster or chicken alfredo; Both come with veggie, potatoes, dinner roll and dessert.
OR do a cheaper dinner to bring price down to the $25-$30 range.

I think $40 is reasonable. We went to one a few weeks ago in Galena and it was just over $50/person.

I think $40 is reasonable. Maybe add a salad option. But I've always wanted to do one so I would definitely be interested.

I think $40 is reasonable. Sounds like a lot of fun!

Yes, I would

I would pay $40 per person!!! For many reasons... 1) You are getting a delicious meal (2) you are enjoying a fun night out solving a murder (3) It is a fundraiser

When is it I totally want to do it

I think it's reasonable

I would go

I would

Yes!

Idk but whatever you guys decide, let me know because I'm in for sure

Would totally do it!!!

In trying to decide on a price I need to clarify the murder mystery dinner is not a play or theater in any way. It is set up with each table being a character (incase you want to dress the part). Each table has a portfolio so to speak of all the info needed on their character. You will then go around asking others question to try to figure out who the murderer is. You do not have to tell all the truth but you can not lie. During desert your table will chat about what they found out and try to decide who did it. It is very fun I have done this for a work Christmas party and had a blast. Now that you know how it will go, please let us know what you think about the whole thing and the pricing. Thank you
