This week has been going amazing, so lets make today amazing too!

Here are 5 things happening in and around Victoria today!

Speakeasy – A Twenties Mafia Murder Mystery

What: Case Notes:
“The year is 1922 and the act of prohibition has forced all drinking establishments to close. Without easy access to liquor and establishments, “Speakeasies” such as The Caterpillar Club have sprung up all over the country, however, this is the first of its kind in this city. It’s a usual night at The Caterpillar Club – until, that is, the biggest organized crime boss and mobster in the city, Bulletproof Bill Mahoney, is found dead! Suddenly, the patrons find themselves suspects in a murder investigation that has to keep “hush hush” in order to keep the coppers away and the speakeasy open.
This event is a mixer event where you’ll be actively questioning other people, sharing information and trying to solve the case. Everyone will get a role as either a suspect or witness. The suspects will have a larger part to play as a character, but everyone gets involved.”
