A Rolicking Good Time at Adams Mystery Playhouse!

Our table was one of three who correctly identified the killer at the end of the evening, so I'm feeling pretty smug.
The whole mystery dinner theater event was a heck of a lot of fun, complete with a conga line and audience members brought up on the stage to dance with the actors.

Suspense and romance author Colleen Collins made a great strumpet suspect, mystery author Christine Goff was making sure not to get her fingerprints on the evidence, and mystery short story author R.T. Lawton's lap got a lot of use. A good time was had by all! Now I'm off to shop for some of that blood-red vodka the bartender was mixing drinks with...
