Crowded dining rooms, ill-prepared food, annoying companions — going out to dinner can be a real drag. Sometimes it’s hard to resist the urge to kill your fellow diners and the waitstaff. Now you don’t have to. This Saturday, Cafeina Lounge (297 NW 23rd St., Miami) invites you to do just that. Well, sort of. The Murder Mystery Company, in participation with Cafeina, will let amateur sleuths and foodies alike attempt to solve a case of death and deceit as they dine. The company will stage Crime and Pun-Ishment: A Mobster Murder Mystery, a classic caper set in the 1920s, with mobsters and gangsters galore. The Murder Mystery Company’s clever troupe of improv actors engages guests as they try to get to the bottom of a hysterical web of lies in the seedy underworld of dinner parties. You could wind up living your Boardwalk Empire fantasies as the iconic thug or the classy dame while your tablemates attempt to solve the crime. The three-course meal includes an appetizer, an entrée, and dessert with, ahem, a bang. Drink specials will also be available during the show. Attendees are encouraged to wear Clue-style attire for what promises to be a killer dining experience.
