First of all, I apologize for the not so nice quality of photos in this post, but they were taken with my Samsung Galaxy with the zoom because I had to capture everything to of course blog about it! :)
This past weekend I had another “birthday” weekend! Yay! You can never have too many birthday weekends, why don’t we just extend it to birthday month?! :)
ANYWAYS! My family surprised me and took me to a Murder Mystery Dinner Theater! Fun! I had been to one YEARS ago, but it wasn’t quite like this one.
It was at Landoll’s Mohican Castle in Loudonville, OH which is actually a really cute place (I had never been there before)! The pictures of the castle were taken the day after the dinner theater because it was too dark to take photos the night of. :) This castle is a stately majesty of times past fit for the kings and queens in all of us. One can experience the romance of lazy afternoons, intimate fireside conversation, continental breakfasts and morning walks through private forestland in perfect solitude. The estate offers unprecedented luxury in its lodging and seclusion.
To find this place is quite the hike down back roads…and even roads that really aren’t considered roads… LOL …but it really is a neat place to check out if you’re ever in the area! :) It looked really pretty at night, which makes me wish that I would have at least tried to get a photo with the castle being all lit up!
Anyways…back to the Murder Mystery play!
It was a wedding theme play in which the best man ended up getting killed. GASP! :) We arrived and they had appetizers out that included some veggies, bruschetta, and some murderous meatballs! Then once more people (including the actors) started rolling in, the actor walked around and, completely in character mind you, to obtain some “volunteers” to join in on the fun.
As the play got underway, we were served dinner which included a buffet of chicken (Italian) or beef (steak), scalloped potatoes, mashed potatoes, glazed carrots and rolls. It was all tasty…especially the mashed potatoes…I literally think there was sugar in them to make them that delicious. Sorry, did not get a photo of any food…guess I was too hungry! :)
Anyways, the play went on to allow each table to work together to interview and join in on the fun of the preset play. Many characters (actual audience members) really got into it and played up their roles to make it that much more interesting. And you know every wedding always has to have some sort of relative join in on the fun…well there was and she was one of the actors (that I wish I also would have gotten a photo of)!
It was a really good time to spend with the family! We got some good laughs, that’s for sure! This particular play I wouldn’t exactly consider family friendly because there were a lot of adult “situations” discussed. There were a couple of kids in the audience though and I felt kind of awkward for them! LOL
All in all if you’ve never been to a Murder Mystery Dinner Theater, you definitely need to check one out! :)
