The Weekend: 11.20-11.22

There's lots of fun to be had in Brooklyn this weekend, from games to concerts and cook-offs. Here's a look at what's happening near you.

Friday, November 20

Music: Brooklyn's Bishop Allen make it a two-fer this weekend, with a show tonight at Union Hall in Park Slope and tomorrow at the Bell House in Gowanus. Bop around to some pretty perfect pop melodies. Sold out tonight, though tickets may still be available at the door (you can still get tickets for tomorrow's show). At 8 p.m. Tickets $15. Located at 702 Union St.

Saturday, November 21

Shopping: Markets are all over Brooklyn. This weekend, 3rd Ward in East Williamsburg hosts SCORE! Pop-up Swap, where the most you'll probably spend is on the $3 admission. Bring clothes, CDs, books and movies, and trade for some new goodies for yourself or friends and family for the holiday. From 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. Located at 195 Morgan Ave.

Games: Get a clue this weekend, when The Peach Tartes’ Rita Men Weep and Joe the Shark bring the classic detective board game to life, burlesque-style. Was Mr. Body done in by Professor Plum with the glove in the water closet, or choked by glitter in the ballroom by Miss Scarlett? Find out at Galapagos Art Space in DUMBO. Tickets $12 in advance (use discount code BOOBS for $10 tickets), $15 at the door. Doors at 10 p.m., show at 10:30. Located at 16 Main St.

Sunday, November 22

Food: Chili or pie? That's the choice today, with two cook-offs in Brooklyn. At the Bell House, it's the 5th annual Chili Takedown, where you can feast on nearly 30 different interpretations on this Texas delicacy At 4 p.m. Tickets $15. Located at 149 7th St. Over in Williamsburg, the first annual Brooklyn Pie Bake-Off Benefit brings blue-ribbon pies to Spacecraft. Fill up on two slices of pie, plus ice cream, of course. A portion of the proceeds will be going to Bags for the People, the local non-profit that combats plastic bag waste by giving away reusable bags. So strut around with that tote. Tickets $10. At 1:30 p.m. Located at 355 Bedford Ave.
