Smoke + Mirrors Mystery Soiree

Story + Photography by Jeremiah “JD” Davis

The Smoke and Mirrors Mystery Soiree kept everyone on their toes recently at Woodlawn Mansion. The evening focused on discovering and assimilating clues scattered throughout the mansion and its property to solve a mystery; the mansion was rumored to be haunted and featured 1920s decor that added to the atmosphere of the evening. Participants dressed accordingly for the theme, and 1920s music by live performers accompanied the night. Participants also used the game night as a networking event as it is a popular pastime for Alexandria professionals. The night ended with a final performance by the band, food and drinks, and the answer to the night’s mystery puzzle.
