Free as in beer, as the software nerds would say.  I am too lazy to get WaPo to stop sending me notices related to their PostPoints program and every once in a while something interesting comes through. This came in shilling that I could get 15 extra* PostPoints if I show my membership card** at this, but it looks like a good way to spend some time regardless.

From January 17th – January 19th, visit Through the Years, a free exhibit of historic front pages of The Washington Post. From the sinking of the Titanic to Nixon’s resignation, view 100+ years of history as chronicled in the next day’s edition of The Washington Post

The Washington Post
1150 15th street NW
1/17, 10:00 am – 5:00 pm; 1/18, 10:00 am – 5:00 pm, 1/19, 9:00 am – Noon

* Is there any kind that isn’t “extra?” I’ve yet to see any value in these things, though I’m not a big fan of loyalty programs in general…

** I have a membership card?

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
