Rain, rain, go away! Because we’ve got a full weekend of outdoor fun planned—like yoga in the garden and movies in the park.


Welcome to the neigHBOrhood. (No, not that neighborhood.) Stay Home to the Movies inside one, or more, of the cable star’s pop-up tiny houses while watching a rotating list of curated films, from action-adventures and thrillers to comedies and kid flicks. Friday, July 26–Sunday, July 28; Domino Park, Grand Street and Kent Avenue, Williamsburg

Live Music

Who better to close out Brooklyn’s On Stage at Kingsborough’s outdoor concert series than a couple of Grammy-nominated musicians? Drummer Dan Pugach and vocalist Nicole Zuraitis lead a nine-piece jazz ensemble to create a few much-needed post-beach tunes and arrangements. Saturday, July 27; 8 p.m.; Kingsborough’s Lighthouse Bandshell, 2001 Oriental Boulevard, Manhattan Beach

Eating + Drinking (With a Literary Twist!)

The West Coast’s best ice cream shop, Salt & Straw, heads out east for an intimate cookbook launch inside Carroll Gardens’s most enchanting bookstore. Friday, July 26; 7–8 p.m.; Books Are Magic, 225 Smith Street, Carroll Gardens

The saying “going to get some air” takes on new meaning during this weekend’s Summer Sunday Wellness sessions at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Experience the landscape before it opens to the public and enjoy an outdoor vinyasa session and an al fresco meditation. As an added perk for waking up so early, you get to take home your own potted plant. Sunday, July 28; 9–10 a.m.; 990 Washington Avenue, Prospect Gardens


Slip on some spellbinding fashion and brush up on your best moves, because House of Yes is hosting the dance battle of the year, Waack to the Future. There will be dancing; there will be African drumming; and there will definitely be voguing. Saturday, July 27; House of Yes, 2 Wyckoff Avenue, Bushwick; $25.50–$100
