A Chicago Caper...

So let's take a quick break from all this crazy Operation Jellyman Kelly stuff and talk about something more fun...

like Murder Mysteries!  ; )

This New Year's Eve we hosted our first Murder Mystery at our place. 

It.Was.Hilarious.

The Scenario:
You have received an invitation to S.P. Keasys place, a private club near the headquarters of notorious gangster Hal Cappone. Upon arriving, Hal is discovered murdered!

The Players:


















From left to right:  S. TREIGHTON HARROW (US District Attorney and chief opponent of the criminal element), EDDIE ("SOCKS") R. GYLE (smooth fashionable and clever, avid golfer and gambler, owns the exlusive gaming house Green Tables where the affluent gamble), ANNA MARIA CARLOTTA SASSINE (sultry voice, exuberant style and traditional blues renditions have earned here the nickname "Torchy", this smoldering beauty currently featured at the Green Tables), MALISSA F. ORRTHOT ("Scoop" made a name for herself as a crime reporter for the citys leading paper The Trumpet, her considerable beauty and lively charm helped further her career on both sides of the law), MOLLY M. AWBSTERR (society dame from NY, the ultimate flapper in Chicago for the action, maintaining a most exclusive penthouse apartment), ERNIE ("BET A MILLION") G. AMBLER (Chicagos most colorful millionaire), "SILKY" M. ADAM (shady owner operator of the The Everlay Club, Chicagos most prominent private establishment) and not pictured above-BILLY ("THE KID") THROWER (star pitcher for the Stock Kings, currently holds the league strikeout record, off the field The Kid is fun-loving, hard-drinking, warm-hearted, lustful, brawling and hell-raising).



















We got off to a rocky start because we didn't time out the food prep as well as we should have...but we dove right in and got the backstory....heard about the crime scene.....and began interrogating one another...

















Because all of our characters were a little...sleazy...there was very little trust when it came to questioning....

A few hours, arguments and random outbursts later it was time to toast to the New Year...and make our accusations....

believe it or not...the killer was....

just kidding, I wouldn't ruin it for you!  It's too much fun!!!

Here's a better shot of the gals.....


















And here's one with the guys....

















What a FANTASTIC way to ring in the New Year!

Happy 2011 all!!!!
