Classics Exclusive Day Trips

Murder Mystery!

Wednesday, October 18th
Activity Level 3 - Join us for an exhilarating event, “Murder Mystery in the Hangar”, where thrill and entertainment are guaranteed. We will travel to Hangar Two in Glenview, where you will have the opportunity to become a detective for the day and solve the enthralling “Murder in the Hangar”. This event is steeped in a captivating Gangster Theme, promising an afternoon of intrigue and suspense.  While you’re unraveling the mystery, indulge in a fabulous lunch and explore a curated selection of beers in our tasting session. Don your detective hat and dive into this immersive experience of suspense, good food, and great company! After, we will visit the unique ABT Electronics store, which is much more than a typical electronics and appliance retailer.  The store spans 100,000 square feet and features an array of unique attractions. These include a 7,500-gallon aquarium that’s maintained by a fulltime marine biologist, a “Time Boutique” with a wide range of luxury watches, and even a “Connect Store” showcasing mobile technology. The store also has a recycling center, an atrium with a fountain, and a cookie shop. It’s not unusual for customers to spend hours browsing the store and enjoying the various exhibits. Despite being primarily an electronics store, it has something for nearly everyone, making it a unique destination that transcends the traditional shopping experience. Price includes transportation, show, lunch, and gratuities. RSVP by September 18.  Payment is due at the time of registration. Members:$140 • Guests: $154
