Going "under cover" in N.W. Washington DC

OK cloak and dagger fans, here is your chance to live the Bond lifestyle at the International Spy Museum located near China Town in Northwest Washington DC, and a middle length walk from the JW on Pennsylvania Avenue.


Having been involved in the creation of the place and considered (ever so briefly) as curator for it, I feel a warm spot for the museum.  If you can prove that you're in the trade (and that's very hard to do) there is a one dollar discount for admission.  If you have an ID card that says spy on it you most likely made it yourself!


But is is a fun place to visit, to assume new identities, gaze on gadgets that even Bond and Company never tried, and have a nice few hours.  The gift shop has expensive items that you might never wear at home or abroad unless you enjoy being spotted and tailed.


Jaleo, a Tapas place around the corner, is an excellent pre- or post-Museum dining spot.
