It’s that time of the week again — the weekend. So let The Weekender be your guide:

• Need some peace and quiet this weekend? Check out our guide on how to get some in Brooklyn.

• In a baseball mood? Watch the Cyclones, who have a five game lead in the McNamara Division, take on the Jamestown Jammers in a three game series.

If you are looking for some new laidback music to finish your summer with check out Porter Block’s new album. Our writer loved it.

• Kung fu fans will love the classic Shanghai silent film “Red Heroine,” accompanied by the Devil Music Ensemble, on Sunday.

• The force will be with you as you watch “Star Wars” at an outdoor screening Sunday night at Habana Outpost in Fort Greene.

In the mood for some street theatre? Check out Theater for the New City’s performance of “Tally Ho!” in Herbert Von King Park on Sunday afternoon.

• Go to Prospect Lefferts Gardens and see the “greenest block in Brooklyn”!

• Learn what Walt Whitman really thought of Brooklyn, at “Whitman’s Brooklyn” on Sunday at the Old Stone House.

• The Makers Market is on Sunday. It’s a great place to pick up handmade crafts.

• Hungry? Eat some bugs. We did — and we also gave you recipes!

• Take a trek to Governor’s Island this weekend.

• Craving dim sum? Check out our guide to the best dumplings in town!

• Check out the one-man, outdoor, interactive play, “Life in a Desert Island,” based on Robinson Crusoe, in Prospect Park on Sunday.

• Take a free ride on the IKEA water taxi before those corporate suits start charging $5 in August.

• Get to know the Brooklyn Paper’s small army of summer interns with our online video.

• The Ringling Bros. circus is still in town in Coney Island. Mike McLaughlin raved, while Dooley didn’t.

The Fifth Avenue art walk continues all weekend long.

• There’s always the Brooklyn Flea in Fort Greene, the Indie Market on Smith Street and Artists and Fleas in Williamsburg on Saturday. Or the Makers Market at the American Can Factory on Sunday.

And, if you insist on staying inside, here are some options:

• Pick up the new mind game book by Brooklynite chess grandmaster Maurice Ashley.

• Puppetworks still has “Aladdin” running at its Sixth Avenue theater on Saturday and Sunday.

• Try the new “Sopranos” wine. Here’s what we said about it.

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