By Malia Wooten

The themed-speakeasy won’t be the only thing chugging its way through Napa Valley!

Ahhh, nothing sets the tone quite like Napa Valley wine, nostalgic train rides, and a bit of murder mystery.

Experience the thrills of the book and film plots you’ve always promised you were too smart to fall into, thanks to Napa Valley Wine Train. It was just announced that the company will be hosting a number of wine-catered speakeasy-themed murder mystery dinners through November.

During the course of each dinner train ride, passengers will travel “back in time to the 1920s to solve a murder on a three-hour journey” while served a multi-course gourmet meal. Though it’s not mandatory, guests are encouraged to dress up in their best Dick Tracy attire a.k.a tassel skirts and pinstripe suits galore! You probably don’t want to stand out in modern wear while solving a case involving ’20s mobsters, jealous lovers, and old-timey federal agents.

Since that the suspenseful event takes place in good old wine country, you won’t have to worry about an empty glass considering train will pass a number of wineries along the way. Besides, a little wine will probably ease the tension and give you the confidence you need to expose the murderer!
