The Weekend: 8.13-8.15

Friday, Aug. 13

Williamsburg: At The Brick, learn the harrowing tale of Grandier, a 17th-century French priest who was executed after nuns accused him of being in league with demons. It's heavy stuff, so cap it off the next afternoon with "Spacemen from Space," a campy play on old movie serials from the 1930s.

Bed-Stuy: See rare photos from Bedford-Stuyvesant from the 1960s-1980s, a time of political and social unrest, but also of community building, at the Skylight Gallery.

Prospect Heights: Warhol comes to life - burlesque style - as the Brooklyn Museum hosts Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School.

Brooklyn Heights: Though the World Cup's come and gone, soccer ain't over in Brooklyn, as three Atlantic Avenue bars show the Premier League. While in the neighborhood, celebrate the grand opening of Crumbs with a free cupcake.
Prospect Park: Shakespeare in the Park? Feh, we've got Calderon in the Park, thanks to a free production of "Life is a Dream" at the pagoda.

Sunday, Aug. 15

Marine Park: Channel your inner gladiator at the Spartan Race, invading Floyd Bennett Field.
