Our evening offers the most delicious buffet in the Black Hills catered by the renowned Cheyenne Crossing Restaurant, accompanied by live music, followed by the unveiling of the murder. Also, you may now stay where we play and enjoy the conveniences and luxuries of the Deadwood Comfort Inn which offers plenty of parking, newly remodeled rooms and facilities, and a beautifully stocked bar.
