Join author Troy Taylor for another night of our “An Evening with…” series of events! This eerie evening will include a catered dinner, served in our private ballroom at the Mineral Springs Mall. After dinner, Troy Taylor will be presenting “Evening in the Valley of the Kings,” a journey back in time to the opening of King Tut’s Tomb and the mysterious curse that was said to plague everyone involving in its discovery.

Was the curse real, or simply mythology? That’s up to you to decide on this special night of the strange, unusual, and the macabre – you don’t want to miss it.

Despite popular stories, there was no curse carved into the stone above the entrance to the tomb of King Tutankhamen, but even so, it’s hard to ignore the strange deaths, murders, fires, and tragedies that were linked to the opening of his burial chamber.

All Dinner and Spirits events will take place in Alton's haunted Mineral Springs Mall ballroom and will be catered. For more haunted tours, dinners, and spooky events see Rivers and Route's events page or visit
