Always wanted to play detective? Detect and dine at the Murder Mystery Theatre and Dinner event at Socrates Greek Taverna in Burnaby on Sunday, May 27.

The event includes a full course dinner and a murder mystery show, with customers and professional actors participating.

"The show is good old-fashioned fun," the event's producer, Trevor Jenkins, says in a press release. "Clues, a body, intriguing tidbits of who, what, where and when will entice the sleuthing abilities in every watcher."

The actors will perform vignettes between courses, the press releases states, and there will be prizes at the event, as well.

Socrates Taverna is located at 6633 Hastings St. Bagga family shares the success

Rajeev Bagga and a team of Lower Mainland students recently won first place and $25,000 at an international business plan competition in Atlanta after participating in the TYE Business Mentorship Program.

Rajeev's cousin Rattan Bagga, CEO of Burnaby-based New World Natural Foods Inc., started the program in 2011 with Amit Sandhu, CEO of the Ampri Group of Companies. Both co-chaired the program this year.

The students won the competition with a plan for spray-on casts for broken bones.

They donated $5,000 from their winnings to the B.C. Children's Hospital and are asking that others donate as well through the group's GenAid fundraising page, to bring the total amount donated to $15,000.
