About Death by Chocolate

Nick Noir, a Humphrey Bogart wannabe private eye, has fallen on hard times. His botched last case has cost him whatever jobs may have come his way. Now he's at the end of his rope and is forced to fire his devoted secretary Selma. That is until a call from Coco Purvis offers a tantalizing case that just might pay off for Nick. Coco and her sister, Bonbon, run Precious Perks Coffee Shoppe, which is known for its signature drink, Death By Chocolate. Unfortunately, the name came all too true for a fellow named Vinnie the Leech who died while drinking it one month earlier. Now, the business has fallen off and the shop might have to close unless somebody figures out what happened to Vinnie. With the coffee shop full of some strange characters, who may or may not be who they say they are, and events escalating, Nick is in just a little over his head. Thankfully, his brilliant secretary dons some unusual personas to help Nick save the day. Since there is no butler in this story, just who did the murder, Vinnie? Hmmm? Dinner includes the Charley Creek bibb salad, home-baked rolls, and whipped butter, chicken piccata with a lemon caper sauce, chef's choice of starch and vegetable, & fudge brownies for dessert. A cash bar will be available.
