A double date with danger! Dine with the ultimate covert couple. Tony and Jonna Mendez, both former CIA chiefs of disguise, will share their amazing stories of how they used their artistry to enable intelligence officers and agents around the world to slip away from surveillance, clandestinely infiltrate and exfiltrate denied areas, hide top secret information, and pass stolen secrets. Both officers spent their careers in the CIA's Office of Technical Service, often compared to Q's laboratory in the James Bond stories. The Mendezes will recount their extraordinary disguise exploits evading the KGB, Stasi, and DGI, and you'll learn how George Clooney and Ben Affleck are immortalizing Mr. Mendez's most famous exploit "The Canadian Caper” in a movie set to release in 2012. You will be one of only 20 guests at Zola for a three-course dinner and wine-pairing where you'll talk with the Mendezes about their remarkable careers and their thoughts on today's intelligence issues.
