You don't have to be a weatherman to look at the view from space above (from Friday afternoon) and recognize any inclement weather is a long way away. The eastern U.S. is virtually cloud-free and will remain that way through Sunday. So how to take advantage?

Here are five top outdoor picks for the weekend...

1) Support the Susan G. Komen Walk for breast cancer (through Sunday).
2) Take in the Senior Players Championship at Avenel. It's a great field of veteran golfers including Fred Couples, Fred Funk, Mark O'Meara, Tom Kite, and others (through Sunday, Potomac, Md.)
3) Enjoy some of D.C.'s finest cuisine at the Taste of Georgetown (Saturday)
4) Root on the Redskins as they take on the Packers at Fedex Field (Sunday, 1 p.m.).
5) Soak in the sun at the Fairfax Fall Festival, featuring a crafts fair, rides for kids, a car show, and more (Saturday).

See the Going Out Gurus for more of this weekend's best bets.

What are you doing this weekend? Any tips for CWG readers? Comment below...

What? No love for DC United taking on San Jose on Saturday evening? :-)

Coming up with a Top Five things to do in Washington is always a tough cookie.

We're checking out RiverfrontFest at the new Yards Park in Southeast by the ballpark.

I'd recommend enjoying some of the hundreds of miles of bike/ped paths throughout the region!
