The 9:30 Club, your grandmother’s kitchen, and Otis from The Andy Griffith Show—all likely candidates for inclusion in the “Smelling Bee,” being held in conjunction with National Sense of Smell Day. That the event is sponsored by the National Olfactory Fund raises certain questions: Are our tax dollars involved? Is this just another front for the Trilateral Commission? What stinks in here? Perhaps a sweeter reaction is called for. After all, a keen sense of smell is almost as important as a sharp sense of outrage. In addition to puppet shows and lectures on animals’ odor awareness, there will be potpourri-making workshops. Breathe deep and arrive between 10 a.m.-5 p.m. at the Capital Children’s Museum, 800 3rd St. NW. $4-6. (202) 543-8600. (Dave Nuttycombe)
