Things to Do: Spies of Georgetown Walking Tour

I just came across an interesting event being sponsored by Things to Do DC and wanted to share.  I'm thinking about going to this myself.

Spies of Georgetown Walking Tour
Thursday, September 2, 2010 7:00-10:00PM
 A small tobacco port 250 years ago, Georgetown today is one of the most fashionable areas of Washington, and is associated with high-profile political figures, media moguls, and society leaders. However, there is another side of Georgetown: espionage and intrigue.

This approximately two and one half hour walking tour will highlight sites associated with spies, counter-spies, and covert action successes and failures, and will include personalities as diverse as Alger Hiss, "Wild Bill" Donovan, James Angleton, and Betty Pack, an auburn-haired American beauty who successfully spied for the Allies during World War II.

Come learn real-life stories that took place in the narrow historic streets, trendy restaurants, and stylish homes of "fashionable Georgetown."
Suggested Attire: Casual

Meet in front of the Georgetown Public Library, corner of Wisconsin Avenue, NW and R Street, NW

Cost: $20.00

Price subject to increase 5 PM Tuesday, August 31
