Saturday, September 22: Oktoberfest kicks off today. In celebration, head over to the Brooklyn Brewery to sample their Oktoberfest beer — brewed in small batches once a year and only available until it all sells out. If you can’t make it to Munich, Williamsburg is a close second in our book.

Sunday, September 23: We’re still torn up about Heath and Michelle, but today will learn about Brooklyn’s stars of yore.

Field of dreams
Monday, September 24: It was 50 years ago today that the Brooklyn Dodgers played their final game at Ebbets Field. This is the perfect year to join the crowd that gathers at the corner of Bedford Avenue and Sullivan Place — where housing projects stand now — and bow your head in mourning.

Wednesday, September 26: Tonight, Sonic Youth front man Thurston Moore brings his solo act to Brooklyn in support of his new solo record, “Trees Outside the Academy.” After Sonic Youth’s performance at the McCarren Park Pool this summer, catching Moore at an intimate venue is a real treat.

Chalk it up
Saturday, September 29: Stop by the DUMBO Art Under the Bridge Festival where 100+ artists are showing their work, but stick around to see Eve Mosher’s “High Water Line” project; the artists travels around the city marking areas that are 10 feet above sea level and are likely to flood. It might be scary, but her science and art combo is definitely one to watch.
Sunset in the park at the foot of Washington Street in DUMBO. Free. For information, visit www.highwaterline.
