The Smoke & Mirrors Mystery Soiree
November 2 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm$75
You are cordially invited to the Smoke and Mirrors Mystery Soiree – an evening of sleuthing, spirits, and sustenance at Woodlawn Mansion.
The year is a rowdy 1924, and you are cordially invited to the rather enchanting post-All-Hallow’s Eve Soiree thrown by the mysterious Miss Elizabeth Montgomery Sharpe, heir to an eerily-substantial fortune, who has established herself as a hostess of great parties at her home estate, Woodlawn. The 1805 Mansion is rumored to be haunted, and despite Prohibition, spirits of all kinds will flow, along with savory and sweet treats.
We have some tricks up our sleeves, so expect to be surprised and, while you are at it, hone your sleuthing skills, because there could be a rather unexpected puzzle to be solved in our candlelit halls. Era-specific costumes and cocktail attire are optional, but are very much encouraged. It is going to be the best fright, ooops we mean, night, of the year and you are going to want to be there!
If you dare to come, your invitation to this most important fundraiser (we have to protect those ghosts after all) includes our Mansion mystery “game,” as well as tasty bites and signature cocktails, wine and beer in the Speakeasy tent. Invite holders will receive more instructions post-purchase. Scared to have such a good time? Good. An evening like no other awaits!
