YOU ALL KNOW the Washington Monument. You probably also know that it was damaged in the 2011 earthquake (yes, our very own earthquake) and has been shut down for 32 months for $15 million worth of repairs. You may even know that the Monument is reopening on Monday, May 12.
What you may not know is that tours on that first day will be available starting at 8:30 am on a first-come, first-served basis, meaning a long ceremony followed by long lines.
Not your style, you say? We’re with you. MyLittleBird has a better idea: We secured a handful of tickets for tours on Tuesday, the second day (the whole first week is now sold out).
A few are for the 10 am tour and some for the 3 pm. And a pair of them can be yours.
How? Just tell us whom you want to take and why.
The most moving, or the most hilarious, or most something, will win an hour (approximately) for two of you high over the glorious cityscape that is Washington, D.C.
