Ultimately, guests break into teams, forming their own detective agency to solve the crime.In the end, it’s hard to know what’s sweeter: Pastry chef extraordinaire Ned Archibald’s dessert creations, including a chocolate fountain and brownie bread pudding with crme anglaise, or knowing that you helped solve the crime of the decade.But if you’re up for intrigue, make sure you reserve a seat soon; last year, Keystone’s Murder Mystery Dinner was quite a hit. “I think people enjoy the interaction with the actors and other guests, and that is why they continue to be popular,” said Autumn Wesson, Keystone’s hospitality marketing coordinator.
