The Weekend: 10.30-11.1

Lots going on this weekend, being it's Halloween and all. Here's a look at what spook-tacular parties are going on in Brooklyn, as well as non-costume related events.

Friday, October 30

It Came From Brooklyn: This isn't in Brooklyn, but will certainly include many from here making the trek to the Upper East Side. The Guggenheim's monthly series returns tonight, with Yeasayer throwing a 3-D light show. You'll just have to see it to get it. Also on the bill are Tanlines, author Rachel Sherman, and comedian Max Silvestri hosting. At 8 p.m. Tickets $40 for members, $45 otherwise. Located at 1071 5th Avenue in Manhattan.

Theater: Ireland’s premiere company, Druid, returns to the Brooklyn stage this season with more powerful storytelling in Enda Walsh’s “The New Electric Ballroom.” Now through November 22 at DUMBO's St. Ann's Warehouse (38 Water St.). Tickets range from $27 to $68.

Music: Boston-based R&B throwbacks are also back for a good time in Brooklyn, playing at BAMcafe in Fort Greene tonight. At 9:30 p.m. Free. BAM is located in Fort Greene at 30 Lafayette Ave.

Saturday, October 31

Hallloween!: Check out our guides to Halloween, for families and those not safe for kids. You're sure to find something that suits your fancy.

Zombies: A new mention for Halloween festivities: the Greenpoint Zombie Crawl, make its way through Diamond Bar, Black Rabbit, td bar and the Mark Bar in search of brains and booze. Starting at 8 p.m. at Diamond Bar (43 Franklin St.). Features drink specials for all zombies, so get into character.

Sunday, November 1

Clocks: This isn't really an event, but remember to turn back those clocks back in the wee hours of the morning for a sweet extra hour of sleep. I love Daylight Saving Time.

Marathon: The ING NYC Marathon makes its way through all five boroughs today. For all you spectators, see where it'll be heading by you in Brooklyn, from Bay Ridge up to Greenpoint, and what do to along the route. It most certainly won't involve running.

Reading: The Brooklyn Lyceum in Park Slope continues its monthly literary event, First Sundays Writers Series, today, joined this time around by Galway Kinnell. Making a rare appearance in Brooklyn, Kinnell is a Pulitzer Prize-winning poet, as well as a MacArthur fellow. Catch him starting at 7 p.m. Tickets $10. Located at 227 Fourth Ave.
