Murder Mystery coming to the museum October 14th

It’s 1923 and the speakeasy at the museum is packed for the birthday party of Al Spumoni, the world-famous bootlegger. A waiter dims the lights for Al to blow out the candles on his cake. When the lights come back up, Al toasts the crowd, takes one sip of his special drink, then chokes and dies. Who poisoned Al’s bathtub gin while the lights were out? Was it one of the gangsters in the room? A high kicking flapper? A visiting silent film star?

Solve the mystery at “Death by Bathtub Gin,” a murder mystery fundraiser hosted by the Geary County Historical Society on Saturday, October 14th at 6:30 p.m. Tickets include the password to enter the museum speakeasy and join the murder mystery experience, hors d’oeuvres, desserts and one ticket for a signature cocktail at the bar, plus the chance to win prizes for best costume and for the table that successfully solves the murder. Seats are limited and tickets are $40 each or $200 for a table of 6. Tickets go on sale September 16th at the Museum’s annual Ice Cream Social.

Death by Bathtub Gin is sponsored by D.E.L. Motors and Subway.
