Gotta go with another murder mystery, last year’s was so much fun. Join us Friday August 26 for a“Whodunit” Dinner Cruise Event in partnership with The Acme Mystery Co!  This year’s storyline: Homestyle Homicide: the Freagan Family Reunion.
  Come a running’ cousins ’cause it’s time again for the annual family reunion and the whole Freagan family is gonna be there! We’re gonna have vittles, singing’,   hooting’ and hollering’ and, of course, no family gathering would complete without the annual pig-calling contest! Dang, you might even win a big ol’ slop bucket full of money! Yeehaw! Best watch your step on the farm this year though. Pa’s been hitting the moonshine a might too hard and is about to lose the farm to that no good snake Beauregard Hogwallerin. When the girls find out somebody could end up on the barbecue!
