Whatta weekend! As such, The Weekender is going to be making the most of it. You should, too, by:

• Head to Coney Island — but don’t go without reading our exclusive Coney Island guide!

• Seeing the Heights Players’ production of “Shakespeare in Hollywood,” which our critic, the Butcher of Flatbush Avenue Extension, loved. Or you could see “Bus Stop” at the Gallery Players, though the Butcher savaged it.

• Heading to the trombone festival at IBeam on Saturday night. Yes, a trombone festival!

• Enjoying the last Brooklyn Flea winter antiques market in DUMBO.

• Going out and buy Giulia Melucci’s funny new book.

• Eating at Ignazio’s and see if it stacks up to Grimaldi’s.

Taking racy photos or sending nasty texts from your cellphone for all to see!

• Picking out a really nice bottle of New York wine at the Greene Grape, which just won an award!

• Getting a guilt-free manicure!

• Partying for Coney Island on Saturday at Southpaw.

• Heading to the Central Brooklyn Jazz Festival to hear a great show.

• Welcoming the UniverSoul Circus back to Prospect Park.

As always, these and other great events are in our exclusive family calendar, our great nightlife calendar, and our matchless events calendar.

Today we went to a production of The Heights Players Theater for Children entitled The World of the Brothers Grimm and the children were enchanted. They will do the show again next Sat. at 11:30 am and 1 pm. A wonderful local ensemble perform charming adaptations of classic children s stories.
