Travel back to the 90’s: Cowabunga, dudes! The 21st Century is so overrated, so you can take a trip back in time at Brooklyn Bowl, where a live band will play everything from Third Eye Blind to the Spice Girls, and from The Backstreet Boys to The Beastie Boys. After that, you can get jiggy with a 90’s-era DJ, who Brooklyn Bowl promises will drop “dope tunes” all night long. Even better, this time it’s Pride-themed! Proceeds to go to the Trevor Project.

$16. Doors at 6 p.m., show starts at 8 p.m. Brooklyn Bowl, 61 Wythe Ave. in Williamsburg. Tickes here.


Saturday, June 25

Flirt with disaster: Hop onto one of Green-Wood Cemetery’s graver trolley tours: the Murder, Mayhem and Disaster tour. Aboard, you’ll learn about the tragic and disastrous deaths of some of its eternal residents. Stops along the tour include the grave of Evelina Bliss, who was poisoned by arsenic-laden clam chowder, and the resting places of those on the sinking SS Morro Castle.

$30, $25 for members. 10 a.m.-noon. Green-wood Cemetery, 500 25th St. at the intersection of Fifth Avenue in Greenwood Heights. Tickets here.

Sunday, June 26

The Gay Agenda, but make it brunch: Join Dream Queens Pixel the Drag Jester and Nikita Petrovna every Sunday throughout the month of June for either of their two showings of “The Gay Agenda: A Drag Queen Pride Brunch.” The show features flips, twists and fun boozy games.

$25. Noon-2 p.m.. Queen, 247 Starr St. at the intersection of Wyckoff Avenue in Bushwick.

Midwood Mardi Gras: Bourbon Street comes to Brooklyn (sort of) this weekend. Head on over to Midwood for the neighborhood’s annual Mardi-Gras-themed block party. The family-friendly event will feature traditional fun and games — and some special surprises.

Free. Noon-6 p.m. Avenue M between E. 13th Street and Ocean Avenue in Midwood.

All weekend long

AAPI pop-up market: Shop over 40 Asian American and Pacific Islander-owned small businesses and creatives at ACE’s “Celebr-Asian of Love,”  a weekend-long pop-up market celebrating the diversity of the AAPI community at Industry City.
