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 five o’clock Friday:

Prospect Concerts: Mamie Minch with Wool & Grant

Where/When: The Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture, 53 Prospect Park W, Friday, Sept. 28 at 8 p.m.

Why Go: Mamie Minch is known around town for her Piedmont-style fingerpicking chops, her big deep voice and her self-penned antique-sounding songs. Bev Grant and Ina May Wool create a musical alchemy of fire and feistiness, wisdom and wit, rocking clear-eyed political songs along with a window on to their travels.

Cost: $10

Party Like It’s 1999: Sabrina in September Edition

Where/When: The Bell House, 149 7th St, Friday, Sept. 28 at 10 p.m.

Why Go: If you’re old enough to remember Sabrina the Teenage Witch then you are most certainly old enough to enjoy partying like it’s the 90s to rock, pop, R&B and hip-hop from the decade.

Cost: Free!

Reggae In The Slope

Where/When: 837-839 Union St, Friday, Sept. 28 at 9:30 p.m.

Why Go: Once a month, NY Reggae artists unite to bring Park Slope the finest Jamaican music in the city. The event always features live bands and boss DJs. Always with respect to the originators.

Stories About the Body: A Yoga and Storytelling Workshop

Where/When: Bend & Bloom Yoga, 708 Sackett St, Saturday, Sept. 29 at 1 p.m.

Why Go: We will begin our experience with a heart opening yoga practice to free up the anatomy of the upper torso and find a place of deep comfort and improved breath awareness. The short yoga practice will set the foundation for creative introspection and honesty. We will then learn how to tell a story that only you can tell: Your story. We will explore different ways to listen to ourselves and others, engage in collaborative story excavation exercises and learn specific tools and methods to tell your story.

Cost: $35

Tamar-kali: Pseudoacoustic

Where/When: Brooklyn Academy of Music, 30 Lafayette Ave, Saturday, Sept. 29 at 7:30 p.m.
