Til Death Do Us Part

Here's a picture of my little mobster, Biff, aka Blake.
OMGosh, I know he's mine, but isn't he just too handsome!?!
Blake has been in many productions such as Westside Story, Sanders Family Christmas, Grease to name a few. His lateset drama part was the character Biff Buffolini, in "Til Death Do Us Part". This is a murder mystery of a Mobster Wedding. Our church put on the dinner on Friday, February 15. Here's a little about this murder mystery, Til Death Does Us Part.

This summer, I am planning a Mystery Dinner myself. This dinner is like no other mystery dinner, as there is not a murder. The food itself is a mystery. The way it works is this: Each guest receives a menu. There are 3 courses to the dinner, and you choose 5 items for each course. On the menu, are 15 items, however, you will not know what you have ordered. You MUST make all your choices for each course before anything is served. You must choose all items, no item can be chosen more than once. Once all orders are placed, menus (with the guest's name on it) are collected and taken to the servers. EVERYTHING is cleared before the next course begins. Now, it sounds simple enough, but you have to know that all items are a mystery. Here's what I will see a sample of item names (that the guests see) and what the item really is (which they WON'T see).....

lover's delight.....spoon
coward's special.....chicken

The thing is, utensils are included in the item list, so someone may get mashed potatoes and a toothpick, but NO fork or spoon. You may get all utensils, a piece of cheese and a napkin for one course. As I said before, everything is cleared before the next course is served, so that won't help you any! Since Emily Post's Etiquette does not apply, guests are left to find creative ways to eat their dinner. This is such fun!! I have been hostess to a Mystery Dinner twice, and both were SO AWESOME! The guests had the best time! I look forward to hosting a Mystery Dinner again this summer!!

Hugs and Blessings,
