The Weekend: 4.29-5.1

Friday, April 29

DUMBO, Brooklyn Heights: Wills and Kate may already be wed, but the party continues all day long in DUMBO, under the Archway, and at the Chip Shop on Atlantic Avenue.

Park Slope: Move to the electronic R&B stylings of Body Talk at Southpaw. Or, if you're in the mood for some awesome aerial feats, head to the Brooklyn Lyceum of "Insectinside."

Fort Greene: Derek Jacobi stars in the titular role in Donmar Warehouse's production of "King Lear," running at the Brooklyn Academy of Music through the beginning of June.

Manhattan Beach: Noche Flamenca brings flamenco to the Kingsborough Performing Arts Center, straight from Spain, in its new show, "ALBA."

Saturday, April 30

Cobble Hill: Find all your Brooklyn favorites in By Brooklyn, a new boutique opening today on Smith Street.

Park Slope: Lots more going on in Park Slope today, from the veteran art at Prophecies Gallery — you can't miss it, the entrance is covered by a bunker! — to the Spring Craft Market at the Brooklyn Lyceum (also Sunday), to the Fifth Avenue Family Festival at the Old Stone House.

Fort Greene: If you're in the mood for an eco-friendly vacation, look no further than One Skylight Hanson, which hosts Green Getaways, a green travel expo, today.

Crown Heights: Sakura Matsuri, the annual cherry blossom festival, returns to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden this weekend — which should be especially poignant this year in the wake of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan in March.

Sunday, May 1

Brooklyn Heights: Take a look at how the other half lives — the kind that lives in 100-year-old renovated townhouses — when the Brooklyn Heights Association throws its annual house and garden tour today.
