Murder Mystery Dinner

I’m excited about tonight. My talented friend Susan (who is not me, obviously) is putting on a Murder Mystery Dinner at her house this evening. The setting is at the Culinary Institute of America in the 1940s where we’ve all gathered to honor a renowned chef but we discover (gasp!) that he has just been murdered.

We’ve all been given roles to play – my character is a French chef so I’ve had an adventure trying to find the right costume. I was able to put most of the outfit together – kitchen shoes, beret, checkered pants – but couldn’t find a chef’s jacket. I checked all the thrift stores and costume places with no luck so I started calling around to the nice restaurants until I found a place willing to lend me one for the evening. So now I am complete! Oh, I’m sorry, that should be: Maintenant je suis complet!

It promises to be a lot of fun. Chris is going as a 40s  detective. He has the whole trenchcoat with a fedora thing going on – it looks so natural on him! I know two of the other people who bought tickets (Susan is putting this on as part of a charity auction) and they have neat characters, too – my sister is a jazz singer and my mom is a wealthy patron of the arts.

Au revoir pour le moment mes chéris. Avoir une grande soirée!

    I used to live near Hyde Park, where the CIA is located. :) And my mother’s friend teaches Italian there, so she gets to eat there for free. Yummy! Have fun at the party!
