So, if you’re into interesting experiences, this coming weekend provides two fascinating events: Tombstone Poker at the Historical Congressional Cemetery (Hoover is buried there). If you’re wondering, Tombstone Poker is part of an immersive game called Last Call Poker, part history, part game, part scavenger hunt, part puzzle, Last Call Poker is proving to be an interesting trip through history and some inspired writing.
Of course if you find playing poker with tombstones of dead civil servants not quite up your alley, there’s always the DC Rat Race, which will be a scavenger hunt with digital cameras and puzzles about local history. Get a few friends, $15, and a metro ticket to Metro Center. The race starts on Freedom Plaza, and could end with $500 to split with your pals. Show up at 1, and give it a run.
