The Gin Kingpin Game 

The biggest bootlegger in San Francisco has just been put in the clink. Now, the competition is on to see who's got what it takes to be the new kingpin. Could be a guy, could be a gal. Whoever's got the most gumption can win.

The adventure begins when you receive your invitation to get in the game on the eve of the event. It instructs you to gab with the flapper who's wearing the same color as your invitation, upon arrival at the party, to get you on your way.

Follow the clues, sling some gin, collect cash and figure out who you can trust. If you've got the biggest stash of green at the end of the evening, you'll be crowned the new Gin Kingpin of San Francisco and be awarded a stupendous prize!

Quantum Leap 

An Interstellar Celebration Beyond the Imagination



Bring the Space theme to vivid life by transforming the venue into a space craft, on a virtual, intergalactic journey to a distant planet, to be colonized by the Cruise Automation team.

This immersive, multimedia experience features custom, futuristic environments on all 3 floors of the venue, interactive sci-fi characters, alien close-up magic, leading-edge dance performances and audience participation, for an out-of-this-stratosphere experience.



The pioneering Cruise Automation team will board Cruise One for an intergalactic journey of discovery to their new home world, Alter Domi - the first colony of its kind.

The evening’s entertainment plays out in four experiential phases:

Phase 1: Boarding the rocket, Cruise One, in preparation for takeoff, with character greetings in the entrance portal

Phase 2: Countdown to blast-off with exciting multimedia and custom soundscape

Phase 3: Exploring three futuristic environments, with entertainment in each

Phase 4: The space jump into the Hyperdrive Finale, an eye-popping multimedia experience


Character Greeting

Upon arrival, guests hear an ambient, space soundtrack and the soothing feminine voice of the vessel’s Al greeting them.

"Welcome to Cruise One. Please proceed to the Main Deck. A crew member will prepare you for takeoff."

Guests are then greeted by the vessel’s 5 crew members (the entertainers), a diverse mix of humans and aliens, who act as the team’s guides.


Countdown to Blast-off

Once guests are all aboard, they will experience the excitement of a countdown to blast-off. The countdown from 10 is displayed on the big screen on the Main Deck and everyone joins in. At 0, the sound of the rocket ship blasting-off fills the room, along with rumbling sound effects. 

*Recommendation: Lights flicker on and off to signify blast-off, and the large screen displays a rocket ship launching. The DJ plays directly after take-off. Displays on the video screen and lighting design is provided by the venue. We will coordinate and manage the delivery of these elements from the other vendors.

Exploring 3 Futuristic Levels

  • Main Deck (Ground Floor): Bright white lighting and stars falling downward slowly on the large screen (to illustrate space craft motion). DJ is playing and guests are dancing, dining and experiencing alien, close-up magic.
    *Recommendation: White couches and cocktail tables and chairs. We also recommend an Oxygen Bar as an added attraction.
  • Engine Room (Lower Floor): Dim red lighting and ambient mechanical sound track. The voice of the space craft's AI can be heard assessing functions: "Oxygen levels are normal... Coordinates, entered."
    *Recommendation: Red couches and coffee tables
  • Cultural Assimilation Room (Upper Floor): Green lighting and ambient space sound track plays. Room is filled with artifacts such as sepia photos, rocks and plants from the planet Altera Domi. Guests interact with aliens from this planet to learn of their culture. The Altera Domians mesmerize guests with other-worldly performances featuring glow spheres, ethereal music and magic, every 45 minutes. 
    *Recommendation: Green couches, a round stage and theatre seating.


Space Jump Finale

For the exhilarating, multi-media conclusion, guests are invited to participate in a final countdown.

Once the space craft reaches the stargate, it makes a heart-pounding leap through a worm hole to Altera Domi, the final destination. Guests watch this momentous event on the Main Deck's big screen.

In celebration of this scientific feat, the cast launches into a high-energy, futuristic dance performance, infused with magic, for a satisfying and electrifying finale.

*This would be a perfect point in the program for Kyle Vogt to say a few words if this is on the agenda.

*The venue provides the video footage on the big screen. We will work with them to make this deliverable. We provide the sound effects.

A Dazzling Murder Mystery 


CE 2, 20'S.jpg

Bring the Roaring 20s murder mystery theme to vivid life by first converting the Monroe nightclub into a swanky speakeasy complete with performing flappers and a slick jazz trio, then, staging a criminal caper for the guys and dolls of Tapingo to solve.

This custom, ab-so-lute-ly swell, interactive experience features razzle-dazzle close-up magic, Charleston-dancing jazz singers and music, a murder mystery-inspired plot, clue-dropping skits, feel-good audience participation and a show-stopping, whodunit-revealing finale.


CE 3 20'S.jpg

The Monroe juice joint is hopping on a Thursday night and the fellas and dames are dressed to the nines and looking for some kicks.

Then, just as the golden-voiced jazz singers are performing  a sultry rendition of “Ain’t Misbehavin”, a shrill scream chills everyone’s spines, and halts all music and chatter...

CE 4 20'S.jpg

Jeepers Creepers! A big cheese from Tapingo is lying spread-eagle on the floor. Murdered.

The evening’s rip-roaring entertainment plays out in 3, fully customized, interactive phases:

Magic & Mayhem: Ritzy jazz music and doll-faced flappers greeting and performing snappy magic, until... a melodramatic murder causes mayhem!

Music & Mystery: Charleston-dancing flappers mingle with guests, croon with the band and perform titillating, pop-up, mystery-solving skits.

Whodunit: The performers and guests come together to determine whodunit in a thrilling game of elimination, for a riveting and satisfying finale. 

Magic & Mayhem

CE 5 20'S.jpg

Upon arrival, guys and dolls hear live, finger-snapping jazz music and are greeted by three sequin-clad flappers, who are reallookers.

Two of the dancing dames escort guests to their cocktail tables and then kick up their heels, while the other dazzles them with magic that will have everyone saying, "This is the bee's knees!"

Music & Mystery

CE 6 20'S.jpg

A trio of dapper, jazz musicians play upbeat, well-known tunes from the Roaring 20s including “When You’re Smiling”, “Mack the Knife” and “Dream a Little Dream of Me” while guests dance the Charleston, Fox-Trot or free style.

The three fabulous flappers alternate between singing with the band, strolling in character and performing pop-up, audience-activating skits that provide guests with clues as to who committed the crime.

Fingers will be pointed, lies will be told, people will be double-crossed… but the truth will come out!

CE 7 20'S.jpg


For a satisfying conclusion to a fun-filled evening of Roaring 20s misbehavin’ and mayhem, Tapingo guests gather by the stage to take a shot (no pun intended!) at whodunit. Only then is the motive, weapon and murderer revealed in one of two ways:

1) Flapper gals facilitate suspect eliminations with the assistance of guests, until the culprit is the only one left standing. (Package 1)
