The interactive activity will then be tasked with solving the murder of vineyard owner Barry Underwood, who after six years is discovered beneath his own wine cellar.

The detectives in the crowd will have to sift through clues and search out the culprit. The person who is able to solve the crime will receive a mystery book as a reward.

The night’s entertainment will also feature a wine tasting for $15 a ticket.

Tickets for both events can be purchased at: All proceeds will go toward the Austin Public Library expansion project. For more information, email
