With the thermometer gradually moving upward between rain spells, outdoor events and weekend celebrations are popping up all over the place. It's a great time to get outside and explore what the world around you has to offer. Stay out late on Wednesday and tap into your inner rhythm at the Full Moon Celebration and Drumming Circle or take a break from the urban landscape and head down to Big Sur for some folkie fun at Hipnic II, featuring Mother Hips, Jackie Green, and other artists. Get a spectacular view of San Francisco and enjoy your favorite wines at the Vino Moda Angel Island Wine Festival, or let loose Euro-style at Norway Day Festival and the Polish Festival. Berkeley will play host to the Urban Assault Ride, a cycling obstacle race through the city that culminates with a celebration of bikes and beer.

This week's question: What is the name of Broken Social Scene's new album? The first person to answer correctly to [email protected] will receive a copy of It's Complicated on DVD.
