Dead Man’s Chest - Murder Mystery Dinner Party at the Castle

Friday and Saturday, August 14th and 15th, 6 pm to 9 pm
 
The Mystick Krewe of Cochon is having an end of Mardi Gras Ball hosted by Governor Fayette Warren and his wife, Raylene. There are lots of surprises planned, including some pirates, of course, so you absolutely must attend!  Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to solve a murder (or two). Are you up the challenge? We’re taking you back in time to 1857 New Orleans during Mardi Gras. We want you to be fully involved in the murder mystery, so please come in costume.

Enjoy dinner in the Preston Castle Courtyard and be part of the action as events unfold around you. Observe, ask questions, and use your super sleuth skills to figure out “who done it?”

A no host bar will have a nice selection of drinks available for purchase, including our killer Hurricane.

Limited to 100 tickets, each night. Get yours now!

Tickets: $45, available at Clark’s Corner or online
