Weekend Update: D.C. by land, by sea and by Segway


(Matt McClain/For The Washington Post)

Stop wishing: Whether you’re a lifelong Washingtonian, here only for a summer internship or still unpacking froma recent move, all of this — the monuments, the memorials, the museums — is yours, too. In today’s Weekend section, we help you get acquainted (or reacquainted) with Washington through guided tours by land, sea and Segway.

Read on for more from today’s Weekend section:

•As always, our picks for the weekend, including the D.C. Caribbean Carnival along Georgia Avenue NW, and the Safeway Barbecue Battle on Pennsylvania Avenue.

•Headed to Carter Barron tonight for the Going Out Guide concert series? It’s reggae night; get to know Archives.

•Quick spins of new music by Ben Sollee; David Bazan; Holcombe Waller; Todd Rundgren; and the Gift.

•Looking for a lunch break near Friendship Heights? Head for the patio at Lia’s.

•Artist Chris Martin fills the Corcoran’s atrium with jumbo-sized paintings that become more interesting on closer examination.

•Gallery opening of the week: “Bite: Identity and Humor” includes a talk by artist Jefferson Pinder.

•Disconnect at the no-frills log cabins at Fairy Stone State Park in Stuart, Va., named for the small, six-sided crystals that can be found there.

A Pixar flick about talking cars that go around the world, and Cameron Diaz as a sultry, money-grubbing educator are the two big movies this week.

Alex Baldinger is editor of the Going Out Guide blog, which covers food, drink, arts, music, events and other curiosities in the D.C. area. He is forever in search of a great sandwich.
