2. Be entertained by the undead. Zombies: they're everywhere these days.

Suitable for kids and families, check out the play at 2 p.m. this Saturday at the Irondale Center at 85 S Oxford St. $5 per ticket, or free for Irondale Members.
3. Shop to a beat. The Gowanus Nite Market is open this Saturday from 7 p.m. to 2 a.m., and featuring vendors, bands, shuffleboard and sponsored items by Film Biz Recycling. Come for the goods, but stay for the party as a DJ will be spinning all night at 61 9th St., Loft C8.
4. Get in touch with your Irish roots. Even if you don't call Ireland home, everyone is Irish this weekend. Celebrate St. Patrick's day with a pint or a parade, or both! The Park Slope St. Patrick's Day Parade will "step-off" at 1 p.m. this Sunday and will run along Prospect Park West to 15th Street, down 15th Street to 7th Avenue, walk to Union Street, then to Prospect Park West back to the starting point. If you're busy this weekend, the following Sunday is the Bay Ridge St. Patrick's Day Parade, which begins at 1 p.m.
