Calling All Scandal Fans: Take A Tour Of D.C.'s Down-and-Dirty Past
Can’t get enough
on Thursday nights? Well, fortunately for you, our nation's capital is no stranger to salacious scandals. While the ABC show's deliciously dramatic storylines may be fictitious, this town has seen a slew of real-life political transgressions dating back to the days of the Founding Fathers. And, provided that Hurricane Sandy doesn't make a total mess, you can embark on DC Walkabout’s adults-only American Scandal tour this weekend, and experience all that dug-up dirt for yourself.
Speaking of Scandal and Sandy, here's a happy coincidence for you: You can use your day(s) off to catch up on the first season on Netflix and current episodes on ABC online as well as Hulu. Once you're fully hooked, we bet you'll be psyched for a two-hour trek through storied downtown landmarks where generations of scandals have taken place. If you’re in the mood to uncover the dirty little secrets behind our town's polished political exterior, reserve your spot today — and let the gossip-mongering begin.
When: Tours take place Fridays at 7 p.m. and Saturdays at 3 p.m., through November 10.
Where: Tour group meets at Lafayette Park, corner of 16th and H streets NW; 202-421-4053.
