We had a fun time at the AGR fundraiser. Rather than being solely food related, which had come to result in people claiming a table and being small social silos, the mystery that required solving forced people to wander around the whole space and talk with improv actors playing 1940s Noir characters to get clues about the missing painting. This took the attention off of voting for your favorite food and placed it on conversation, costume, and the themes of the evening. One does need an excuse to wear a fedora these days, so I was delighted. I believe the whole evening was a great success. Margaret put a lot of energy into this over the past few weeks, as did many other volunteers. Well worth it.
