A Jury-Rigged Murder (current day)

Judge Prudence is the star of daytime TV’s hottest courtroom show – “Jurist Prudence.” The episode being taped today features a contentious court battle involving a canine tryst, a litter of puppies and a controversy over puppy paternity. The plaintiff and defendant are ready to battle it out and let Judge Prudence rule on the lawsuit. Tensions are high on the set though – could this be the final episode of Jurist Prudence ever?

Alienated by Murder (1947)

It’s 1947 and something strange fell out of the sky last night and landed on a nearby farm. Farmer MacDonald saw it, and even managed to grab a piece of it before the military showed up and closed off the site. General Buford Stifle is desperate to head off any rumors of a UFO, and possible confiscated alien technology.

As the Guiding Light Turns by the Edge of Night (current day)

For the staff and patients of Meadowbrook Pines Memorial Hospital, life is truly like a soap opera. Sordid love affairs, backstabbing and evil twins make things anything but orderly at this hospital. No one loves drama more than world-renowned brain surgeon Dr. Drake Scorpio, but with surgical rivals, high-profile patients and the romantic complications that come with his inexplicable allure, this doctor has all he can handle.

Deadstone vs. Tombwood: There’s Murder in Them Thar Hills
The 1870s gold rush is in full swing and ever since they found yellow nuggets in the Gray Hills, the neighboring towns of Deadstone and Tombwood have been booming. Gambling, drinking, “hospitality”…it’s all part of daily life in the wild west. This is a territory that operates outside U.S. laws (for now), but there’s talk about annexation or even a merger between the two towns. That wouldn’t go over well, given the bitter rivalries and skirmishes between the townspeople from both camps. Still, with all that gold in the hills, someone is going to make a killing!

Entree Choices:

  • Chicken Piccata, topped with lemon-infused cream sauce and parmesan cheese
  • Maryland-style Crab Cake, golden baked with Japanese panko and sauteed
  • Stuffed Ricotta shells pasta with ricotta cheese and a delightful marinara sauce

All dinners come with a salad, sides, and dessert.  Coffee, tea, and water are included.


There is a cash bar available for our guests, serving top-shelf beer, wine, and cocktails, as well as soda and other non-alcoholic beverages.


Your voyage price does not include gratuity for our volunteer servers and bartender.  If you feel they do an outstanding job, we encourage you to tip accordingly.  Your enjoyment is their ultimate goal!
