Weekend Update: Outdoors 101 is in session

(Dayna Smith - For the Washington Post)
Spring has sprung, which means it’s time to get back into the swing of the outdoors. In today’s Weekend section, Amy Orndorff authors a syllabus of sorts for Outdoors 101, an all-skill levels guide to hiking, camping and water adventures in the D.C. area.

Got questions for the professor? Amy will be hosting a chat today at 1 p.m. alongside kayaking, fly fishing and National Park Service experts. Need to know where you should hit the river this spring and summer? Submit your questions now.

Here’s the rest of what you can find in today’s Weekend:

Our weekly glance at the best events in the days ahead, including the debut of a new D.C. beer, a celebration of William Shakespeare’s 447th birthday and a set by breakout hip-hop star Waka Flocka Flame.

•Reviews of new albums by Title Tracks (Wednesday at the Black Cat) Dead Men’s Hollow (Sunday at the Church of the Resurrection), Danielson (Saturday at the Red Palace) and Mogwai (Tuesday at 9:30 Club).

•After a long wait, Hill Country Barbecue has arrived in Penn Quarter with dry-rubbed meats and a honky-tonk atmosphere.

•WPGC’s Lil’ Mo offers her radio personality and stellar voice to “The Color Purple.”
