1. What is Mystery District? Mystery District plans mystery dates based out of Washington, DC.  Our mission is to send you to DC’s hidden gems using the preferences submitted in your survey and contingent upon what’s available for your selected dates.
  2. Does Mystery District plan mystery dates in cities outside of Washington, DC? Mystery District plans mystery dates for the DC metro area. For missions in other cities in the United States, please submit a request via the Contact page.
  3. I like the idea of a mystery but I want to know more. What’s in a date? Each date consists of three “missions” usually consisting of an activity, a meal, and drinks. That’s our typical recipe, although we reserve our bald eagle, God-given American right to tweak this formula if we so choose. If that’s too much uncertainty, you can indicate in your survey that you would like to know the details of your date (and keep it a surprise for your partner-in-crime) instead of a full-on surprise for both of you.
  4. How does Mystery District put together these mystery dates? Glad you asked! Click here to learn more.
  5. How many Agents can I recruit for one mission? Typically we plan missions for two people, but heck, the more the merrier! Just let us know in your survey if you are requesting a mission for a group.
  6. I’m sensing a “spy” theme here…are we just going to the International Spy Museum? Not necessarily! Although the ISM is an interesting and fun place to go in DC, we will not be sending you exclusively on spy-themed missions.
  7. Can I request a mystery date on a weekday? You sure can, Agent! In this case, we’ll work under the assumption that you would prefer the start time to be after 5 PM unless otherwise specified in your survey.
  8. Ummm what’s the quality of a “Ballin’ on a Budget” date? For the crafty folk, the date will most likely consist of at least one or two free activities (museums, pop-up events, scavenger hunt, etc.).
  9. Is Mystery District only for couples? Nope! Mystery District is for friends, girlfriends, boyfriends, imaginary friends, furry friends, parents, grandparents, siblings, co-workers, etc.
  10. Can Mystery District plan a mission for a corporate event? Sure! Just submit a request via the Contact page and we’ll get it going!
  11. How much does this cost? You select the budget in your survey preferences. For each budget, there is an associated planning fee. You will receive an invoice for the planning fee + any tickets or reservations Mystery District had to pay for in advance when we send you the itinerary. Payment is due one day after your mystery date.
