My wife and I decided to attend a Murder Mystery Dinner at the Briarhurst Manor in Manitou Springs to celebrate Halloween. The Manor was built in 1876 by the founder of Manitou Springs, Dr. William Bell of London, England. The Manor, located at 404 Manitou Ave., is listed in the National History Registry.

Not that having the address helped us much. We followed our Google Map friend to the location and made the right turn the map indicated. It didnít go to anything even close to a Manor. We backtracked and didnít see a sign anywhere.

We called the Manor and tried to get directions. The gentleman at the end of the line was rather curt and rude. Perseverance led us to discover we needed to travel an additional 10 feet before we made the right-hand turn into a large estate like place. There were still no signs to tell you where you were.

That was actually the second conversation we had with the gentleman. We had buyerís remorse a day or two earlier over the $100/each cost. We called to cancel our reservation and were told by the same curt, rude man we couldnít do that. That may have been an omen about the course of the evening.
