Washington Post Staff Writer

Want to take the next Meet Your Meat class on the Outer Banks? Here’s what you’ll need to know for the weekend of March 18-20 and beyond:


Duck, N.C., is about 273 miles from Washington, most easily accessible by car. Take Interstate 95 south to I-295 (Richmond bypass), then I-64 to I-664, which changes back to I-64. Take U.S. 168 south into North Carolina, where it becomes U.S. 158. Continue across the Wright Memorial Bridge to the Outer Banks, then follow signs to Duck. The Sanderling Resort is about five miles north of the town.

The $325-per night package (two-night minimum, excluding tax) includes a double-occupancy room in the resort’s North Inn, the all-day workshop, lunch at the Weeping Radish and dinner at the resort’s Left Bank restaurant (not including wine and tip).

The program is co-sponsored by Sanderling Resort and Spa and the Weeping Radish Farm Brewery and will be part of Taste of the Beach , a four-day event March 17-20 on the Outer Banks, featuring demonstrations and samples from local restaurants. The last session for this season will be held Saturday, April 9 (half-steer and pig).
