Murder Mystery Dinner Show “Eat, Drink And Be Murdered” Is Aug. 25-26

Tuesday, July 25, 2017

The Murder Mystery Dinner Show “Eat, Drink and Be Murdered” will be at the Colonnade Center on Friday and Saturday, Aug. 25-26. 

Review for Eat, Drink and Be Murdered:

Grandma Rose O'Riley McFadden took the O'Riley recipe for homemade whiskey, handed down to her by her father, and gave it to her husband, Finian McFadden. He built a distillery, and now Wild Irish Rose Whiskey is one of the top selling brands in the world. The McFaddens are filthy rich because of the O'Riley family recipe. To make things even worse between the two families, many of the O'Rileys have to work for the McFaddens at the distillery because there's no other employment in the area. 

Finian and Rose have one child, Conor. When Finian died, Conor took over running the distillery--but not with absolute control. When Rose gave away the O'Riley family recipe, she purposely left out one ingredient as an "insurance policy." To this day, only she knows what that ingredient is. For years, she's gone in and added the ingredient to each mix. Rose always knew the family recipe was a worth a fortune; she also suspected that Finian married her for the recipe. She married him because his family had the money to start the distillery, and she hoped she could eventually convince him to include the O'Rileys. Finian turned out to be a real bad guy. He hated the O'Rileys, treated them like dirt, and gave them the lowest jobs at the distillery. Rose never divulged the secret ingredient and held out hope that when Conor grew up, he'd take over the business and include the O'Rileys. Unfortunately, Conor turned out to be a chip off the old McFadden block, a real O'Riley hater. 

Now, Rose's health and mind appear to be failing, and both families are worried. If she dies before revealing the secret ingredient, it's curtains for Wild Irish Rose Whiskey and the McFadden empire. 

The McFaddens need the secret to stay in business. The O'Rileys want the secret to begin producing what they feel is rightfully theirs. Family members on both sides have their own reasons for getting their hands on that secret ingredient. To make matters worse, today is Rose's 80th birthday, and both families have been forced to gather under one roof to honor her. It's a family reunion in the middle of a family feud. 

Doors open at 6:45 p.m., dinner at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 7:30 p.m.  Tickets are $22 per person and can be obtained online at colonnadecenter.org or by calling 706-935-9000.

Am I Alone?

 Am I alone seems to be quite apt as I begin to form sentences, thoughts and concerns regarding the state of this country.

Six Things We Can Do About Mass Shootings - And Response (3)

All politics aside, the recent shooting in Florida, and every other shooting in a public place, is a senseless and, possibly, preventable tragedy. It is absurd that we can’t gather in a free society without the fear of some nut job or terrorist using us as targets.   And then the cries of “do something!” from every quarter. But, other than the obvious attempt by agenda-pushers ... (click for more)
