Beginning this Friday, Jan 9th, you can taste the life of a spy for an evening. No, really! Intrigue, deception, daring escapes, delicious drinks and five-star treats – it’s all yours for a night at the International Spy Museum.
It’s a weekly special operations event for adults only. License to Kill card not required.
Every Friday and Saturday night starting at 6 p.m., enjoy a visit to the museum’s interactive experience, Operation Spy. After the hour-long mission, toast your success (or drink away your failure) and your team from the Zola Kitchen bar menu.
It’s not just all about OpSpy, either. The museum is offering games, challenges and contests throughout the evening. Every Friday night will offer a different expert tradecraft demonstration, from handwriting analysis to lie detector testing. Former intelligence agents and officer will be on hand to regale you with stories, such as Melissa Mahle, who ran operations against Al Qaeda throughout the Middle East, Central Asia and Africa.
So if you’re looking for a way to pass the doldrums of winter, consider heading down to Penn Quarter. Tickets are available at the museum’s website. Who knows, maybe you’ll see the WLDC crew there!
The International Spy Museum is located at the corner of 8th and F St, NW, near the Yellow, Red and Green lines.
