Our in person Murder Mystery Scavenger Hunts are a great way to socialize with other members of the group as you work together to solve the mystery.  The event will start and end at The Playwright Pub where you can eat and drink. Y0u will also get to learn fun & interesting historical information about the area! Following the hunt you can join our Happy Hour at The Playwright.

The Story

Sammy Social is a member of several social groups in the city.  One particular day Sammy attended several events, met with friends and toured some historic sites near Herald Square.  By the end of the night Sammy met a horrible fate and the police need your help to solve his case!   Join us for this fun evening where you will join other members of our group to set out on a mission to find clues to solve Sammy’s case. Along the way you will learn amazing bits and pieces of NYC history that you probably never knew.  The best part is that at the end of the hunt you can socialize with all the teams to talk about your adventure!

How it works:

-Meet at the Playwright on 35th Street between 5th & 6th Avenues for registration from 6:30-7pm.

-If you don’t have a team we will put you with other fun people in teams of 4-5.

-Once you are on a team you will receive a sheet retracing Sammy’s steps that day.  You will go out into the neighborhood to find clues and facts that will help you solve Sammy’s case.  Along the way you will also learn a little NYC history!

-Each group will have 90 minutes to find as many clues as possible and solve the case.  You will return to the Playwright for more socializing, food and drink while we tally up the scores.
