Experience a night of murderous mayhem at the Grand Traverse Resort and Spa in Acme during “Murder at the Speakeasy.” The four-course Murder Mystery Dinner is set for Saturday, April 1 and has a Roaring ’20s theme.

Tickets are $50 for an individual, $90 for a couple or $450 for a table of 10. Tickets are available at MyNorthTickets.com. Seating is limited, so please purchase tickets in advance.

The drama unfolds in the resort’s Michigan Ballroom with an opening reception from 5–6 p.m. featuring prohibition-era cocktails like the Old Fashioned, Gin Spritzer and Rum Runner. Dinner and the murder mystery show will begin at 6 p.m. and conclude by 8 p.m. As the murder mystery plays out, guests will enjoy a delicious four-course dinner, featuring pepper crusted roasted beef sirloin, paella, penne pasta, Caprese salad, and a warm bourbon pecan tart that would delight the most hardcore gangster.

Dress ideas for the night: flapper dresses, zoot suits, feather boas and headbands, pinstriped suits and fedoras. The resort will reward the “Best Dressed Man” and the “Best Dressed Woman” with a variety of prizes. If you aren’t feeling that jive you can dress as a private detective to help solve the crime, just don’t frame the wrong guy. In addition to a prize for the best dressed male and female, the fastest detective will walk away with a prize! All guests will receive a complimentary mugshot. (Costumes are encouraged but not required.)
