The cherry blossoms are expected to be in full bloom this weekend. But if you're looking to take in more than trees, the region has plenty of fare for you to enjoy with your other "buds."

(April 2) CHERRY BLAST The Cherry Blast is the official explosion of peak-festival-pizazz sure to put you in the spring spirit, with live music, DJs, dancing and performance art tonight at 9 p.m. at 1701 Florida Avenue Northwest, in D.C.'s Adams Morgan.

(April 3) ANIME-UP! The best cherry blossom event you may never have heard of sets up shop at the Freer Gallery of Art on the National Mall all day Saturday. The National Cherry Blossom Anime Marathon showcases some of the finest full-length films of this Japanese form from 11 a.m. on.

(April 3) WALK THE U-LINE And outlaw country celebrates a birthday tomorrow night at the Iota Club and Cafe in Arlington when local roots-rockers The U-Liners take the stage at 9 p.m. to pay tribute to the "Okie from Muskogee," Merle Haggard.
