  • International Spy Museum
    Considered to be the country's only public museum devoted to the history of global espionage, the International Spy Museum teems with multimedia displays, hands-on activities, and educational events. Filled with low-lit halls and mysterious doors, the museum backs up its exhibits with experience; many of its board members, staff, and speakers are former spies. Executive Director Peter Earnest, for one, spent more than 35 years in the CIA and its National Clandestine Service; frequent speaker Oleg Kalugin once held a position as major general of the KGB. Through special talks and an array of exhibits, the group reveals several hundred years of spy techniques and gadgetry, showcases connections between real spies and pop culture, and draws from international backgrounds to grant a global perspective. In the Exquisitely Evil: 50 Years of Bond Villains exhibit, visitors explore the most memorable villains from throughout the James Bond film series, discovering the role the series played in shaping public perception of spying and exploring how the villains changed to reflect their times. Featuring over 110 movie and historic artifacts, a series galleries allows visitors to learn about the wide variety of evildoers from many perspectives. For an additional charge, guests can opt to embark on a simulated covert mission entirely based on real intelligence case files in Operation Spy, a one-hour interactive exhibit during which participants ride in simulated truck beds and use video surveillance to find leaked nuclear-trigger technology in a fictional country.

  • ArtJamz
    In June 2010, after a late-night session of painting, drinking, and generally rousting about with a group of friends, magazine editor Michael M. Clements found himself pondering an unshakeable question: “Wouldn’t it be great if we could do this at a bar?” The seeds of ArtJamz sprouted almost immediately into a traveling paint party, where the caterers brought not only beer and wine but also all-you-can-paint palettes, for-sale blank canvases, and invaluable artistic expertise. In the years since that fateful, paint-spattered night, ArtJamz has become a citywide phenomenon, organizing collaborative events with the Smithsonian American Art Museum, and finally realizing the founding fathers’ vision of a tie-dyed capitol building. Although these creative enablers still operate pop-up events at galleries and retail venues across D.C., Virginia, and Maryland, the permanent studios in Dupont Circle and Brookland have an open-house policy to enable paint parties every week. Freestyle paint sessions and classes are offered, charging separately for studio time, canvas, and drinks. Day hours keep artists aged 5–18 in mind, whereas nightly sessions feature beer, wine, and creative cocktails for the 21+ set. More than 20 distinct colors await inspired brushes, and the walls of the cozy venues are fair game for a fresh coat. A trained staff is always on hand to offer advice if needed or requested, and to make sure nobody loses an ear.

  • Destination DC Pedicab Tours
    A certified sixth-grade teacher and a longtime resident of the DC metropolitan area, Shaady Fakhrai seems perfectly suited to deliver informative tours of the capitol. But it wasn't her professional experience or her hometown pride that got her in the saddle?it was a medical emergency. After a terrible accident left her wheelchair bound for several months, her only release was her physical therapy sessions, where she'd rebuild her leg muscles on a stationary bicycle. She made a vow in that doctor's office: "The day that I can ride a bike again, I'm going to ride my bike for, like, fifty miles, and I'm not going to stop." And that's exactly what she did. Soon after her recovery, happenstance led her to cross paths with a pedicab, and two days later, she was starting a brand-new career. Today Fakhrai oversees a fleet of pedicabs and drivers who lead not only historical tours, but also bar crawls, holiday excursions, trivia tours for prizes, and demonstrations in ponytail physics. On the Monuments Tour, locals and tourists alike get the inside scoop on the Lincoln Memorial, the Washington Monument, the Vietnam War Memorial, and the National Mall. The Lincoln Beer Tour starts out by tracing the footsteps of the assassin John Wilkes Booth, and ends at a local brewery where guests toast the Great Emancipator with free samples. The DC Wonderland Wine Tasting tour ups the ante on capitol refreshments by letting riders sip still or sparkling wine while they tour the Newseum, the Crime and Punishment Museum, and the Friendship Arch, among other locales.
