Dance. Art. Theater. Food. We've got you covered in Brooklyn this weekend.

DUMBO: Between the DUMBO Dance Festival and the Art Under the Bridge Festival, the neighborhood down under the Manhattan Bridge overpass is the place to be this weekend. Both run Friday through Sunday.

Beyond Brooklyn: While not happening in the the borough, the Guggenheim is all about Brooklyn tonight, with its second installment of its "It Came From Brooklyn Festival." While the name sounds like a horror flick, don't be turned off. Tonight's show include's Julian Plenti (aka Paul Banks of Interopol), I'm In You, authors Rivka Galchen and Hampton Fancher, and comedian Eugene Mirman. At 8 p.m. Tickets $45/$40 for members.

Ride the train: Here's another inter-borough mix. The G-Train Salon continues its journey, stopping off in Park Slope for a collaboration with Urban Alchemist Design Collective.
