Be a tourist at the Spy Museum - without other tourists

Brightest Young Things is having a series of events where you can act like a tourist here in our own city -- only without the tourists.

Their first is one of the biggest tourist traps in our neighborhood - the Spy Museum.  Have you ever wondered if it's cool in there?  But you can't go in or you'll be one of THEM.

Relax.   You can go for twenty bucks (tickets here) and get access to the entire museum, but, as Pamela Sorensen puts it, without "annoying kids or sweaty tourists."

The event is March 1st from 8:00 p.m. until midnight.  It includes multiple bars serving Smirnoff Vodka, DJs, finger foods, a Cold War photo shoot, and a scavenger hunt.   They will have fake moustaches, too - in case you forget yours.

Get your tickets here.
