Do you have what it takes to be James Bond? You can test yourself at the exhibit "Exquisitely Evil: 50 Years of Bond Villains," which just opened at the International Spy Museum in Washington. It runs through 2014. Props from the films are represented, including the steel teeth belonging to Jaws from "Moonraker," torture knives and a small-scale model of the Aston-Martin DB5 first driven by Sean Connery in "Goldfinger." Fifteen video clips from ex-CIA agents are called "My Bond Moments." www.spymuseum.org/ MCCLATCHY NEWSPAPERSSofitel offering a third night for free
