This month’s Mappy Hour, by OutdoorFest, will be on the theme of adventure travel. Bring your big adventure ideas.

As always, Mappy Hour is free, but beer will set you back a few of your hard-earned pennies. This month, they partner with REI and move to the outdoor Wunder Garten in NoMa.

I’ll be backpacking four days in Colorado next week. Can you come up with bigger adventure goals?

Carpark Records, based in DC and Brooklyn, is celebrating its 16th anniversary this month with a special series of concerts, including one at DC9 on Saturday, March 7.

The first show actually will take place with nine artists at Brooklyn’s Baby’s All Right on Friday, March 6. The DC show will feature five bands, including Lexie Mountain Boys, Greys, Chandos, Adventure and Jimmy Whispers. The final anniversary show will be held on March 19 at Saw Dive in Austin, Texas, as part of SXSW.
