The “Marble Palace” hosts an all new Murder Mystery, this year based on one of the most important events in Chicago’s history…

In 1893, the biggest fair in the world attracted millions of visitors to Chicago. Sadly, some of those people were never heard from again. On the evening of “Chicago Day,” October 9, a small group of 16 revelers were enjoying the fireworks from the roof of the Pabst Casino. One such fellow, Francis Furter, was found dead in a beer barrel the next morning. However, the mysterious case was never solved.

A cold case investigator travels back in time to the first Big Wheel, to the first box of Cracker Jack, to the White City-to the Columbian Exposition of 1893. Come one, come all to the Chicago World’s Fair! This is one for the history books…

Your ticket includes a reception of cocktails and hors d’oeuvres followed by a three-course dinner in the historic Ballroom. Period attire is highly encouraged but not required. Guests must be 21 years of age. Advanced ticket purchase is required.

Proceeds from the Murder Mystery support programming at the Driehaus Museum.

Murder Mystery is presented in partnership with Get Away with Murder Productions.

Ticket Refund Policy:  Tickets are fully refundable up to 10 days prior to the event, 50% refundable up to 72 hours prior to the event and non-refundable less than 72 hours prior to the event.

Tormented Artifacts: home of the deranged artwork, custom leatherworks, and other imaginings of Dmitri Arbacauskas

Not much is known about Dmitri Arbacauskas, before he came riding in out of the east with only a paintbrush, a leather punch, and a host of mad ideas snaking their way through his head. It’s said that he’s one of the few people to have attended both Cornish College of the arts and Miskatonic University. It’s also said that he’s been known to howl at the moon, and to hold strange rituals on its dark, demanding sacrifices of rum, tobacco, and entire bottles of paint.

But then, people tend to say a lot of things.

Who am I? An artist. A bit of a geek. A bit crazy, sure, but then, that’s all of us these days. I’d rather let my work speak for itself, rather than you try to deduce how my own personal history affects it (generally, it doesn’t), but should you feel the need to find out more about me, you can always try my personal Twitter or Tumblr accounts.
