No Trump at this presidential debate!

Culinary who-done-it at Mount Hope takes participants back to 1916!

It may end up being Hillary vs. The Donald in 2016, but 100 years ago it was Republican Charles Hughes (left) and Democrat Woodrow Wilson. Exactly who will be debating next month at Mount Hope remains a mystery.

Hope remains a mystery.


Mount Hope Estate & Winery is hosting interactive culinary who-done-it murder mystery dinner theaters in February and March.

Inside the mansion, the year is 1916, a presidential election year, and everyone, it appears, is throwing their hats into the ring. And why not? The Panama Canal has recently opened, the outlaws of the Wild West have been brought to heel, and there is a major war raging across Europe. If ever there was a time when America needed strong leadership, it is now. The United States is poised to be a true world power, and this election is her moment of truth. Which path will she take?

Three candidates will meet this evening in a no-holds-barred debate that could very well turn bloody.

The event’s four-course culinary experience begins with an amuse bouche, an edible spoon with whipped boursin. The first course will be a savory salad with house-made dressing and Parker House rolls. The second course will feature chicken with sage dressing with béchamel, green beans and baby bakers. The meal will conclude with a dessert of a coppa café with coffee and chocolate covered coffee beans or coppa crema with pistachio. Vegetarian and gluten free meal options are also available.

Murder at Mount Hope Mansion runs Fridays (7 p.m.) and Saturdays (1 and 7 p.m.), Feb. 5 through March 20. Sunday matinee performances have been added this season, at 1 p.m., March 6-20.

Participants under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Admission is $42.95 per person.

Seating is limited and reservations are recommended. Reservations can be made by visiting or by calling the box office at 665-7021 x231. Visit for more details.
