This year the DMA officers decided to not make the holiday season more stressful then necessary by hosting the 2007 Holiday dinner in... 2008!
Yep, we pushed the event out to January 5th of 2008 in order to make it a bit easier for everyone to fit in during the busy holiday Season.
Club Activities Director Stephen Card took the wheel for this event and arranged a truly unique experience for all of us to remember the holiday party by booking a murder mystery party with a 1970s theme.
The show was titled "Death By Disco" and was featured at a restaurant in the middle of Peddler's Village in Bucks County, PA.
Peddlers village is a great location to shop before, during or after the holiday season. Although the dinner party was not scheduled for later in the evening, many members who attended arrived earlier in the day to browse the many shops the village has to offer – Jewelry, antiques, crafts, clothing, and countless other stores await you and your credit card.
As the afternoon continued the DMA members started to meet up within the village and chat or shop together.
Actually bringing you DeLorean to the Holiday party is optional, but most people tend not to drive them that time of the year.
We all finally arrived at the restaurant for the dinner mystery party. While we waited to be seated for the show several members gathered around the large stone fireplace to warm up from the chilly January weather at the outdoor shops at the village.
It was the first time that any of us had attended a murder mystery dinner, and we were not sure exactly what to expect, how to solve, the crime, or how the events would be played out before us. It was almost like the mystery BEFORE the mystery. As the seating for the show began, the actors explained how everything would work, and we were more excited then ever.
Dinner and the Mystery show kicked off, and we knew right away it was going to be a blast. The actors were dressed in their best 1970s garb as the dance competition at the "DiscoTeria" (The best Disco cafeteria in town) kicked off.
The cast added a bit of audience participation to the show, and Kevin Abato was transformed into the disco dancing sensation "Super Fro"!
As the evening progressed, so did the story, the murder, and eventually the solving of the crime. It was a great evening, and everyone who attended really enjoyed themselves.
