The Palm

Solve a baffling murder mystery while feasting on a three-course meal during The Palm Atlantic City’s murder mystery dinner theater 6 p.m. Monday, July 24.

“Assassination Idol” is a twist on the former television show “American Idol.” Watch as their version of the musical talent show - “Big American Star” - takes a dangerous, violent turn as the competition heats up during final night.

Look for clues and try to solve the case during dinner, which begins with a baby arugula salad or classic Caesar followed by filet mignon paired with either lobster tail, crab cake or shrimp scampi. Family-style sides include apple-smoked bacon mac and cheese and green beans with pancetta, pepper flakes and pine nuts. Top it all off with either flourless chocolate cake or key lime pie.

The event, which is $85 per person, repeats 6 p.m. Aug. 27. The Palm is located inside the Quarter at Tropicana Atlantic City, 2801 Pacific Ave. Call 609-344-0483.
