on parties

3 Feb

This weekend, we went to a Murder Mystery Dinner at the Zimel’s. Amber-Rose planned the whole party for Adam’s birthday, but it was so much fun, we all felt like we were at a party just for us!

The scene was a Napa Valley Winery. All of the characters came to the winery for its usual anniversary party, and much to their dismay, found the body of the winery’s past owner under the floorboards of the entryway! The previous owner had gone missing and been decided dead five years before. Now, we all had to figure out whodunnit.

Jon’s character was Otto von Shnapps a german wine merchant who had lots of money and would buy the best wines he could find. I was Marilyn Merlot, who left the town for Hollywood, where she became an accomplished actress. Jon was hilariously funny and I had to act like I wasn’t nervous to “act.” Jon won best costume!

Me, telling my defense as to why I was NOT the killer…(Otto helped me re-enact the scene I was describing)

    And might I add that the lovely Marilyn Merlot (Morgan) was the runner-up for best costume! Thanks for helping to make the party a great one!
