)-- “Murder at the Four Deuces” to benefit PICU at Holtz Children’s Hospital 7 – 11 p.m. Monday, October 31 at Tobacco Road.
WGIRLS Miami, a non-profit organization, will be hosting an incredible, not-to-be-missed murder mystery fundraiser in the upstairs room of Miami’s oldest watering hole, Tobacco Road, to benefit People in Crisis United (PICU) at Holtz Children’s Hospital.
The party, dubbed “Murder at the Four Deuces,” will take you back to the year 1920 for the grand opening of the Four Deuces Speakeasy where a murder will take place and detectives (guests) will search for clues to decipher the inconspicuous assassin. The event will feature drinks, passed hors d’oeuvres, raffles, prizes and many other surprises.
Guests are invited to choose from a variety of characters, if they wish, or they may attend as detectives as they scroll through the infamous speakeasy halls in their 1920’s themed costumes in search of clues.
The fundraiser event will take place on Monday, October 31st, on Halloween night from 7:00pm to 11:00pm. The game will begin promptly at 7:30pm and it takes approximately 3 hours to complete. Tickets will be sold in advance at the low price of $35 at wgirlsmiamigrandopening.charityhappenings.org and will entitle the guest to two drinks and passed hors d’oeuvres. There will be a selection of signature drinks from the 1920’s offered at Happy Hour prices. A portion of the signature drink sales will go to PICU.
Tobacco Road is the official sponsor of this event.

About Tobacco Road
Tobacco Road is considered Miami’s oldest bar having first opened its doors in the early 1900’s. During its first years the establishment was a bakery, apparently to serve as a front for a speakeasy during prohibition. In the years to follow, Tobacco Road survived important events such as the Great Depression, Mariel Boatlift, Al Capone, wars, hurricanes, race-riots, cocaine cowboys, homeless squatters and a crack house across the street. Although throughout its history Tobacco Road has served as a speakeasy, gambling den, gay bar, strip joint and a blues & jazz bar, it doesn’t fail to continue being what it was originally intended to be – a neighborhood watering hole. Today you can rub elbows at this popular hangout joint with downtown professionals, celebrities, locals and tourists.
