Most of us have played the game Clue, or at least have seen the movie. You know, "Colonel Mustard in the conservatory with the lead pipe." It can be a thrilling game, and when you solve the mystery you get to feel a bit like an armchair Hercule Poirot. If you'’re the type of person who wants to take it a step further, there's a New Year’s Eve event custom-made for you. Keith & Margo's Murder Mystery Midnight Madness is an intriguing alternative to the usual Dallas New Year's tradition of getting really drunk and shooting your gun into the air at midnight. This all-inclusive package is a fancy-dress affair complete with Champagne, dinner, a DJ and, most important, a real, live fake murder that the guests get to solve. It's an interactive murder party for the upper-crust mystery buff. Clue yourself in from 8:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. at the Dallas Omni Hotel, 1590 LBJ Freeway. Keith & Margo suggest top-shelf attire, up to and including black tie and evening gowns. Admission is $129.50 per person. Visit murdermysterytexas.com.
Wed., Dec. 31, 8:30 p.m.-1 a.m., 2008
