Dinner, a Murder and a Mystery: An Interactive Date Night

**Disclosure: We were provided with complimentary tickets to Wanted Dead or Alive in order to conduct an accurate review. No other compensation was received. All opinions are 100% my own.

Sometimes thinking of a fun date night can be a little bit of a challenge. Looking for something new to do or a movie you want to spend money on seeing or a band you would like to listen to can be a fruitless endeavor. Yet, we all need to get out! From time to time, my husband and I like to try something a little different than are normal go-tos for a date night. Life is too short to not be willing to try something new! So, when The Murder Mystery Company invited me to one of their shows, I knew that we had to go! Who doesn't need a little suspense and mystery in their lives--especially when it will all be solved in an evening?
