Washington, D.C.’s International Spy Museum is hosting a party entitled “Mission Impossible: Party Protocol” at its new location on August 9.
The party, organized jointly by the Brightest Young Things and the International Spy Museum, starts at 8:30 p.m. and lasts until midnight on August 10.
The popular museum’s new facility is at D.C.’s L’Enfant Plaza, which is walking distance from the National Mall to The Wharf.
“Get your secret identities ready and brush up on your Russian, agents. We have one hell of a mission planned for you. This party is the only way to infiltrate one of the coolest museums in the world and get an exclusive, tourist-free, all-access, party-time look at the new building and exhibitions!” the event brief says.
Sponsored by Heineken, Tanqueray, Smirnoff and others, the event features musical performances: Spy vs. Spy DJ Battle on the main stage, Mixmag Allstars, DJ Tezrah, DJ Dvonne, DJ Lemz and DJ Damn Kham, as well as activities like Spy-Ku Coded Poetry, Fake Passport Station, Disguise Makovers, Handwriting Analysis and OM Digital Photobooth.
Attendees are invited to become a spy and join a “live action immersive scavenger hunt.”
For a ticket priced between $65 and $80, visitors can also benefit from the open bar.
Among other sections at the event are “performances and pop-up appearances from D.C.’s greatest covert intelligence agency, the House of Sonique.” Former CIA agent Jonna Mendez, known as “chief of disguise” will deliver a speech and cybersecurity researcher Emily Crose will speak at a live episode of SpyCast, the International Spy Museum’s Podcast.
Austin Powers Silent Disco will be another attraction of the party.
Even though there is no dress code at the event, guests are encouraged to dress up as fictional spies or actors who played them.
