Never Too Early to Think About Dinners
October 14 and 15, 2011, may seem like forever into the future, but it's only twelve weeks away, so if you can recall what you were doing twelve weeks ago (i.e., early May), then you can see how fast time flies, only forward, not backward.
It's never too early to start thinking about your dinners, especially really good ones, with mysteries for entertainment. We are not talking about mystery meats, either. Do you have a taste for MURDER? (Well, pretend homicides, anyway.) Are you good at piecing together clues to find the perpetrator(s)? Can you do this while eating a scrumptious meal? If so, then you won't want to miss the MPL Murder Mystery Dinners in October, presented by Programma Mama and the Friends of Mooresville Public Library. The Adult Dinner is October 14; the Teen Dinner is October 15. Everything happens at the Library, and we need you to enjoy the great food and catch the killer(s) before dessert. Okay, eat the dessert first, but you need to catch those palookas, too.
Our revised program trailer, much improved over last year's version, will give you the skinny.
Register using my Library's online calendar. More details will be posted on the online calendar as the event dates approach, so you should check back often. Past attendees have raved about this extravaganza. Be there or be square.

P.S. Since we already used Elvis Costello's "Watching the Detectives" (1977) as a musical closer to another blog posting, this time we'll turn to a popular 1960s spy song. Johnny Rivers recorded his cover of "Secret Agent Man" (1966), which was the theme song to the British television spy drama Danger Man (1960-1962; 1964-1968), which aired in the U.S. as Secret Agent (1964-1966). The song was composed by Steve Barri and P. F. Sloan.
P.P.S. Robert Palmer sang "Looking for Clues" (1981) on German television, which explains the wacky costumes. German TV is always ahead of the curve in pop entertainment.
