Murder Mystery Weekend

Email or call (919) 880-3539 for details.

The Murder Mystery takes place at the Fuquay Mineral Spring Inn and Garden. It starts with a evening of wine and cheese at the Inn and Garden. The event will take one around Fuquay-Varina to local business for clues as you investigate.

Malcolm Melee owner of Melee Vineyard takes great pride in pouring his famous Cabernet, the wine that tickles the palates of wine connoisseurs around the globe. Over the past decade, his small operation has built a record of supplying a quality product, even though Melee’s surly personality has produced more adversaries than advocates.

The celebration was open to the public and the assemblage included both his supporters and detractors, some of whom openly expressed their opinions about his business practices. Melee simply laughed off all negative words, even dismissing the notion that someone was determined to end his reign as cabernet king.

This event will have local business people from Fuquay-Varina will play roles and be part of the weekend event. The guests will take on the roles of investigators.

Unlike many Murder Mysteries, at the Fuquay Mineral Spring Inn, there is no need to don special costumes or worry about memorizing character descriptions, we do most of the ‘work’ for you. However, your assistance will be needed throughout the weekend should any murders occur that our detectives have difficulty solving.

If you enjoy playing detective, having fun and enjoying good food, you will love our Murder Mystery weekend. It all begins on Friday night with a social that includes light hors d’oeuvres, wine, and draft beer in the garden. Unfortunately some ‘uninvited guests’ may join in the festivities.

We try to keep the evening under control yet, in the past, murders, hysterical antics and arguments have occurred – not necessarily in that order. We ask that you are continually on guard and make note of any shady characters or unusual activities. Friday night dinner will be on your own at one of several good restaurants within walking distance.

Your Saturday morning will begin with a fanciful breakfast enjoyed in the Inn or Gardens. Maps of the area will be provided. Should there be a murder, we do ask that you be on the look out for clues throughout the community. Fuquay is a small town with many quaint shops and in the past local storekeepers have had information that has assisted with necessary convictions. Enjoy browsing through the bookstore or one of several antique shops. Enjoy a cup of java, a spa treatment or try on a new outfit. Do be careful – you never know who may be lurking.

We will all gather again for a dinner party at the Inn. However, we will meet an hour earlier should our detective need assistance. During dinner you may work alone or with a team to develop questions for suspects. You will have time to question and determine who you find guilty before dessert – after which the guilty party will be put away.

If you wish to add a Massage to your stay, the cost will be $95.00 to 125.00 plus tax per person, the booking of your accommodations will be separate. Massage services should be booked in advance.

These events are a huge success and space is limited. Please make your reservations as soon as possible.
