The Murder Mystery with Events & Adventures Seattle

Events & Adventures Seattle had the amazing opportunity to be a part of Mystery Weekend 2018 in the city of Langley, Washington. The annual murder mystery on Whidbey Island was a new and exciting way for members to make friends and get out of town. Plus, who doesn’t love a good mystery? This year’s Sherlock Holmes type murder mystery invited members into an interactive experience as they attempted to solve a heinous crime.

The adventure began as members boarded a luxury ferry en route to the south side of Whidbey Island. During this enjoyable ride, they were given packets containing background information about their destination, the small town of Langley. Upon arrival, a local church offered the group a free breakfast, fueling them for the exciting day ahead. Each member received a local newspaper from the chamber of congress that detailed the murder and exactly what took place.

Now it was time to put their detective hats on and head out to gather clues

Townsfolk across the city were in character as the members asked them questions in order to solve the crime. The story was written by local authors and involved live actors roaming the streets as well as additional “suspects” including characters like the mayor, the police chief, shop keepers, the librarian and basically the whole city of Langley. Everyone was dressed in character, which added to the realism and fun of the event.

At this point, everyone split up into groups and toured the city looking for clues. Their first stop was the murder scene itself, which was roped off. The crime took place right outside of a new comedy club that was soon to be open to the public. Before the club even opened, the headliner was found dead on the doorstep. This set the stage for the members to begin their quest for answers and make new friends along the way as they worked together to solve the mystery.

The members had a great time touring the local shops, restaurants, hotels and other charming locations as they participated in such a unique event

At the end of the day, everyone came back together to bring the story to a close. Many of the member’s detective work paid off as they were able to successfully reveal the culprit behind the murder. The Langley Murder Mystery gave Events & Adventures Seattle the opportunity to make friends during an adventurous weekend. Visiting Whidbey Island was a chance for members to get out of town and experience new things with new people, we can’t wait until the next great event!

Mardi Gras Valentine’s Day Party with Events & Adventures Dallas

The Mardi Gras Valentine’s Day Party Was A Special Time for Events & Adventures Dallas

For this year’s Valentine’s Day party, Events & Adventures Dallas celebrated with a twist as members experienced a Mardi Gras themed masquerade house party. When Valentine’s Day and Mardi Gras are in the same week, why not combine them for an awesome event? There was a lot in store for members, including a DJ, food, drinks and even a photo booth. Rather than stressing out on Valentine’s Day, the fun atmosphere of the party encouraged Dallas members to let loose and meet new people in a comfortable environment.

Over 70 people were in attendance and most everyone dressed the part for this festive occasion, wearing masks, bead necklaces, and other fun apparel. The DJ played songs commemorating Mardi Gras and celebrating the rich cultures and traditions of New Orleans. Additionally, there was a song request form at the sign in table so that members could dance to their favorite hits.

How could they stay in their shell when there was a conga parade winding through the house and around the yard?

The food and refreshments at this unique Valentine’s Day party didn’t disappoint; after all, it was a Mardi Gras celebration, as well! Delicious Cajun-style food was catered to the event, with non-Cajun food available to those that couldn’t take the heat. The famous frozen hurricane cocktails served in colorful take-home glasses were a highlight of the party. Members sipped on the lively drinks while watching the dancers go crazy or conversing with new friends.

A professional photographer was there to capture all of the memories, setting up a photo booth and snapping some action shots. Although the photo booth was Valentine’s Day themed, members showed off their Mardi Gras props and masks for the camera. In case they wanted to wind down, members could take a break from the dance floor and picture posing to watch the Winter Olympics being shown in the background.

Since the new members meeting took place beforehand, 30 brand new Dallas members were excited to experience this Valentine’s Day party as their first event

Not only did the new members get to taste the famous frozen hurricane cocktail, they also got a taste of what Events & Adventures is all about. It was the perfect time for them to meet the other members and enjoy a quality event.
