Murder at the Bross HotelAvailable dates:Price from: $100
Murder Mystery Nights at the Bross Hotel B&B are participatory activities. You do not watch actors portray a murder scene. You are a guest when a murder occurs and it is up to you and the other guests to determine which of you is the murderer. This is done through questioning among the guests during the evening and over a themed dinner.
For this to work smoothly, you need to know your role and something about that person before the evening begins. Thus, registration is three weeks prior to the event so that you can receive your role and information about your character (not a script), and prepare your costume.
February 20. A night of mystery and intrigue in the roaring 20’s! With the passing of prohibition and organized crime on the rise, Rosie’s speakeasy has been jumping. To celebrate its success, she’s planning a party to remember and you are invited! One of the names on the guest list is also on someone else’s hit list. No one is safe from murder…but everyone will have a chance at solving it. Can you finger the culprit? Reservation deadline is January 30th. 970-527-6776.
Cost: $250/couple or $175/single. Price includes a role in the murder mystery, dinner, one night stay at the historic Bross Hotel, breakfast. Without overnight stay: $150/couple or $100/single.
