Review for I'm Getting Murdered In the Morning:

During the garter toss at Brenda and Eddie's wedding reception, a mysterious man falls dead on the dance floor from a gunshot. Luckily the bride's father -the wealthy Harold Montague -invited damage control expert Mr. Parker to the event. Parker tries "spinning" the murder as "nothing to worry about," but society columnist Mary Berger insists "something be done."  Something like hold the presses because this could be the "Society Scandal" of the year. Not only was a man shot during the garter toss, but it seems the mysterious dead man has ties to both the groom and bride's family. Secrets that both sides do not wish to reveal. Nonetheless, with some persuasion of Mr. Parker, the reception continues as planned and the murder mystery takes a back seat. For a while.

Dinner served will be Greek stuffed chicken, meatballs in marinara, roasted asparagus, mediterranean salad, garlic rolls, and dessert with your choice of sweet tea, unsweet tea, and water to drink. A vegetarian option is available upon request at the time tickets are purchased. 

Tickets are $22 per adult and $17 for students/seniors. Children 5 and under are free.

When The City Was Silent

I don't know how to say this without getting my head handed back to me on a platter as is often the usual case. But at least I no longer receive the hateful (even threatening) emails and insults I became accustomed to. So I'll just bite and say it: I honestly don't see anything expressed by the NSM that hasn't been said locally on some level at one time or another, and ... (click for more)
