Murder mystery dinner at Trailblazer Grille Oct. 29
Help solve a murder at the Trailblazer Grille in Burnet when the restaurant turns into the Petulant Express at 6 p.m. Friday, Oct. 29. Guests are urged to come in period costume, dressed for dinner in a railway dining car in the year 1937.
At some point during the four-course meal, entrepreneur Peter Petulant will be murdered! Eight cast members will mill among about 80 guests — detectives — telling their version of events. It is up to diners to determine who did it.
“We try to do something every year that gives the adults in the community something fun to do around Halloween,” said Liz Catlin, who owns Trailblazer Grille with her husband, Trace. “This is our 11th murder mystery.”
Liz Catlin wrote the first one, “The Pumpkin Caper,” for a 30-person guest list. She moved 72 pumpkins into her home for the event. When the murder mysteries moved to the restaurant and included a bigger audience, she turned the writing over to Little Red Car Dynamics in Conroe.
Tickets for the event are $50 and can be purchased at the restaurant, 216 S. Main St. in Burnet, or by calling 512-756-7636.
The menu includes chips and dips, a garden salad, and a choice between chicken breast with rosemary cream sauce or an 8-ounce grilled sirloin steak. Both are served with potatoes and asparagus. Dessert is death by chocolate cake — a fitting end. Soda and ice tea are free. Beer and wine are available for purchase. Reservations are required.
“It’s a fun time,” Catlin said. “I hope to never outgrow the excitement of dressing up and eating candy. It’s a very special time of year for me and my family.”
