Saturday, June 26: The death metal band of art galleries is back with “Zombies Attack Brooklyn,” a show inspired by the living dead. The best piece? A sculpture of a mermaid in all its bloody, gray-skinned glory — no Disneyfied vision here. We also liked the fake B-movie horror poster for “Brooklyn Nightmare,” starring Angelina Jolie and Harvey Keitel.
7–10 pm. “Zombies Attack Brooklyn” at MF Gallery [213 Bond St. between Butler and Baltic streets in Gowanus, (917) 446-8681]. For info, visit www.mfgallery.net.
Reclaim the street
Saturday, June 26: Williamsburg Walks, a car-free party on Bedford Avenue between N. Fourth and N. Ninth streets, returns with a two-day version primed for picnicking or browsing galleries and street art. And it wouldn’t be Williamsburg if there wasn’t music (so expect lots and lots).
1–7 pm. Williamsburg Walks (Bedford Avenue between N. Fourth and N. Ninth streets). For info, visit www.williamsburgwalks.org.
Sunday, June 27: It’s about time that the Fancy Food Show at the Javits Center had some serious competition. The “Unfancy Food Show,” our borough’s own answer to the high-end version in Manhattan, is now bigger than ever, thanks to a new home at the Bell House. A $5 cover gets you beer, bands and plenty of samples of the artisanal fare. Better than the “fancy” version.
Noon–5 pm. Unfancy Food Show at The Bell House [149 Seventh St. between Second and Third avenues in Gowanus, (718) 643-6510]. For info, visit www.thebellhouseny.com.
Big laughs, Littlefield
Monday, June 28: Comic Kurt Braunohler, of the variety show “Hot Tub,” is back with partner in crime, “Daily Show” correspondent Kristen Schaal (pictured) for an absurdist comedy show that relies more on the physical than quick one-liners or elaborate storytelling. The night will also feature Bradford Jordan.
8 pm. “2nd Borough: A Night of Comedy Hosted” at Littlefield [622 Degraw St. between Third and Fourth avenues in Gowanus, (718) 855-3388]. Tickets are $5. For info, visit www.littlefieldnyc.com.
Beat the Yankees
Thursday, July 1: The Brooklyn Cyclones have christened their newly named stadium in fine style — by taking two out of three from the hated Staten Island Yankees last week. Now, the Baby Bombers return for another early season mauling — so head to MCU Park and start learning all the new players (hint: Cory Vaughn is awesome!).
7 pm. Brooklyn Cyclones vs. Staten Island Yankees. MCU Park [1904 Surf Ave. at W. 17th St. in Coney Island, (718) 449-8497]. Tickets are $8-$16. For info, visit www.brooklyncyclones.com.
