“APRIL 18: COSMIC CAPER  Something is amiss at the planetarium!"

You've just received a cryptic letter from an old associate—they want you to attend a gala at the museum and recover an artifact of great value hidden in the exhibits. Can you follow a series of elaborate clues, solve cryptic puzzles, uncover the mole, and find the item before more sinister people do? Time is running out, and only YOU and your crew can solve this caper of cosmic proportions.

In between your sleuthing, don’t forget to:

Try a special beer brewed just for the event in collaboration with our friends at Empirical Brewery
Check out a special talk by Adler astronomer Mark Hammergren and curator Pedro Raposo on some of astronomy’s greatest mysteries and the history of searching for “hidden things” in the cosmos
Enjoy special performances by Lakeside Pride Music Ensembles, a musical organization committed to the education of the LGBTQ community through public musical performances

It's a mystery to end ALL mysteries this April at Adler After Dark. Make James Bond, Charlie’s Angels, and Maxwell Smart proud and don your best sixties-era formal wear!”
