Pssst, don't look at me, just listen. Were you followed? Good. I've left the information you requested at a drop right in front of The International Spy Museum which opens today in Washington, DC.

I work right down the street and yesterday the neighborhood wafted with sounds of the James Bond theme as two Rolls Royces kept driving in and out. The huge red carpet was in place as everyone was practicing for this morning's ribbon cutting ceremony.

The Drop. Be discrete but pass it on.

I live in the area too, and was considering going this weekend after seeing it on the news, but the admission prices are a bit steep for a lone visitor. How a bout a DC-MeFi'ers Spy Museum EB?

Same here - how many of us are there, anyhow?

Yeah, I noticed that too. Do you think they're funding any covert operations with admission revenue?

Cute that DC gets spy museum and NY get Museum of Sex!

Going to be hard to fork over $11, when there's so much free stuff here in DC. I hardly ever go to the Corcoran, and it's only $5.

From what I've seen, there's a big DC MeFi contingent. Have a look at the meetup.com page for info about a get-together.

Just walked over to the ribbon cutting. I just missed two repelling the side of the building and Chris Rock's 2 cents. Lots of media coverage from all over the world, from the looks of it.

Chris Rock is a SPY!?

OMFG I just KNEW it! Like in that movie!
