The Brooklyn Paper

Want to know Where to GO today and during the week? Here are some can’t-miss ideas!

Sunday, August 18: Presenting Bushwick

A party night in the style of a Ted Talk that’s less inspirational and more informational, with talks ranging from history lessons to laser demonstrations. This week's Presentation Party Night celebrates the Bushwick food and arts community.
7 pm at the BatHaus Coworking Space (279 Starr St. between Wycoff and St. Nicholas avnues in Bushwick, Free.

Tuesday, August 20: Hulkmania

Join wisecracking movie watchers in seeing professional wrestler and actor Hulk Hogan in the film “Suburban Commando,” where he plays the character Shep Ramsey, an interstellar hero who crash lands in suburbia. Also starring Christopher Lloyd.
8 pm at Berry Park (4 Berry St. between N. 14th and N. 13th Streets in Williamsburg, Free.

Thursday, August 22: Loud neighbors

Garage rock band Slim Wray’s latest single “Bear” immediately snaps you into its infectious blues machine with a throbbing drum beat and dirty guitar riff. You can almost imagine enjoying it muddled through the walls of an apartment.
9 pm at Trashbar [256 Grand St. between between Roebling Street and Driggs Avenue in Williamsburg, (718) 599–1000,]. 8–9 pm open bar, $7.

Monday, August 19: The lonely people

Look at all the long faces on the subway — what happened to you people? Well, according to Mark Epstein, the author of “The Trauma of Everyday Life,” we’re all suffering. It’s kind of Buddhist, it’s kind of psych 101, but mostly it’s empathy.
7 pm at Book Court [163 Court St., between Dean and Pacific streets in Cobble Hill, (718) 875–3677,]. Free.
