Weekend Update: Water, water everywhere


(Linda Davidson/The Washington post)
In today’s Washington Post Weekend section, we head for the water. Check out six excursions worth diving into, from crab-boat tours on the Potomac to a quirky water ballet in Baltimore.

You’ll also find our top picks for the weekend: There’s Belgian Restaurant Week, Latin Night at the Carter Barron and a French Festival on the heels of Bastille Day. Of course, there’s also good old-fashioned American fun with the the D.C. Summer Carnival and the opening of “The Great American Hall of Wonders.”

Here’s the rest of what you’ll find in today’s paper:

• Latin jazz band Orquesta La Leyenda headlines our concert tonight at the Carter Barron Amphitheatre. Get your free tickets at the venue’s box office beginning at noon!

•Quick spins of new albums by EMA (Sunday at Red Palace); Wild Beasts (Saturday at the 9:30 Club); Gomez (Monday at the 9:30 Club); Buck 65 (Thursday at Iota); and Nikka Costa (Sunday at Jammin’ Java).

•And speaking of the 9:30 Club, the food they serve is no sideshow.

•Popular with critics and crowds, the shows “The Importance of Being Earnest,” “Clybourne Park” and “The Ramayana” deserve to be seen again.

Manipulated photographs in the new “Possible Worlds: Photography and Fiction in Mexican Contemporary Art” exhibition create haunting images and surreal worlds.

BLT Steak chef Victor Albisu takes students way beyond burgers and dogs at the restaurant’s grill and barbecue class.

•In movie openings this weekend, there’s “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2” and everything else.
