I have enjoyed the circa 1900 established Spanish restaurant El Cid since my first time there with a crowd of musician friends. Â Pitchers of margaritas flowed and tons was eaten and, well, the rest is a blur, but its always a good time filled with great food. Â You can just imagine the hollywood legends that have poured into (and out of) the Silverlake establishment over the years — after all it was built by D.W. Griffith and was the site for the screening of “Birth of a Nation.” By the 50′s it was converted into a mini theatre before becoming the restaurant in 1961 that is still enjoyed today. Â Dark, moody and romantic, it’s a perfect spot for Murder Mystery fun.
The large space has room for a mystery show (they also do others) and so on Friday nights you can register and for $49 you get a 4 course dinner and mystery show! (Actual murderer info not provided. Â Frame your dinner mates, live out your Clouseau dreams and have a blast!
They even offer prizes for best and worse solution!
Thousands have enjoyed the show and so if you aren’t a Halloween fan, or you are and are looking for something different to do, you can do this the night before.
Sign up and get your detective on. Â If it was good enough for D.W. Griffith..
