Looking for a wickedly good time? Join us for our murder mystery, “Bloom Where You’re Planted”. The evening begins with dinner at the Starved Rock Lodge’s Dining Room, where you’ll meet a cast of colorful characters. The suspense builds as you ride the trolley to the Bleeding Heart Manor (The Hegeler Carus Mansion) for a party hosted by the Manor’s unusual owner, famous florist Phil O’Dendron. There are bound to be some—seedy– events that take place!
