Don't stay home this week when there is so much going on. Here are our picks for things to do:

Head to Freddy's Bar at 627 5th Ave. Go for the free live music that can be heard all night long but stay for the divey ambiance and full bar and menu.
a night of folk, old-time and blues music. You will see and hear people playing banjos, guitars, washboards, tub-basses kazoos and harmonicas. The night is hosted by Feral Foster and features a stellar group of musicians. Plus, it's free!
Long-time Brooklyn resident and artist, Jonathan Fritz, has opened his art studio/gallery to the public in conjunction with Target First Saturdays at the Brooklyn Museum to present his unique pop art.
