Get Out! The Weekend Guide

Our picks for fun and local weekend events.

Still have no idea what to do this weekend? We’ve got you covered. Here are your best bets for a good time come Friday:

Where/When: , 200 Eastern Pkwy, Friday, July 27 at 11 a.m.

Why Go: Why not prepare for the London Olympics by learning about past Olympiads? The Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art’s Dinner Party exhibition showcases four women who were involved with Olympics dating as far back as 396 B.C. 

Cost: Free!

Where/When: , 837 Union St, Friday, July 27 at 9 p.m.

Why Go: Often compared to singers like Janis Joplin and Lucinda Williams, Nicole Nadine's soulful voice has been received with acclaim by everyone from CBS Late Show Musical Director Paul Shaffer to rock icon Oasis, who hired her to perform in their recent documentary. Jessica Smucker writes what could be considered "dark pop" songs: catchy melodies in minor keys, lyrics that masterfully infuse sad stories with tiny flecks of humor and hope.

Cost: Free!

Where/When: Brooklyn Artists Gym, 168 7th St, Saturday, July 28 at 7:30 p.m.

Why Go: New York-based photographer and painter Jaimee Todd will have her first photography solo exhibition this summer entitled, Visions of New York. Visions of New York is a celebration of Jaimee Todd’s love for New York that is seen through vibrant street photography that breathes life into the buildings, neighborhoods and people of the city. You can see some of Jaimee’s work by visiting her online portfolio at http://jaimeetodd.com.

Cost: Free!

Where/When: 9th St & Prospect Park W, Saturday, July 28 at 7:30 p.m.

Why Go: Why are there so many songs about rainbows? Ask the Loser’s Lounge. Before the screening of The Muppet Movie (the 1979 original) that all-star tribute ensemble gets its Kermit on with a salute to the Muppet musical oeuvre. And who better to dig into it than the Loser’s Lounge, which has covered everyone from Elton John to Dolly Parton to Simon and Garfunkel to Prince? (who have all, it’s worth noting, appeared on The Muppet Show) Bring your kids, your voice, and your sense of childlike wonder and delight—because the whole night is a sing-along.

Cost: Free!

Where/When: , 217 5th Ave, Sunday, July 29 at 12 p.m.

Why Go: Don’t miss the final days of Bob & Judi’s Coolectibles! The store closes on July 31, so come by and enjoy huge savings up to 50 percent off all furniture, lighting and much more. The extended hours are from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Everyone is invited to come say good bye and have a snack and drink with Bob and Judi! 

Cost: Free!
