The Weekend: 3.19-3.21 and beyond

Spring is here! Here's a look what's going on in a neighborhood near you to get you out and about.

All weekend long:

Food: Dine in Brooklyn is still going strong. Find out what restaurants are participating near you here.

Window shopping: Shop and take in art in Clinton Hill through "Imprint," featuring prints on display in storefronts on Myrtle Avenue storefronts between Vanderbilt and Hall.

Saturday, March 20

Art: Due to the torrential downpour last week, Smack Mellon's open studios was postponed until today. Spend the day in DUMBO taking in new works. From noon-6 pm. Located at 92 Plymouth St.

Sunday, March 21

Brunch: Enjoy a homemade meal and and vintage jazz at Bruncha Libre, a brunch/dance party at the Brooklyn Urban Sanctuary in Prospect Heights thrown by Gemini & Scorpio. The adorable Moonlighters will serenade you while you eat. Tickets $5 at the door/$15 food. From 1-5 pm. RSVP for location.

Beefsteak: Rather indulge in meat? The Brooklyn Beefsteak is back at the Bell House in Gowanus, this time with more meat. Tickets $45. Two seatings at 2 and 6 pm. Located at 149 7th St.

Tribute: Mourning the loss of Cory Haim? The Knitting Factory hosts a tribute to the '80s teen heartthrob, as Brooklyn-based comedy group The Raspberry Brothers celebrate his film work. At 7 pm. Tickets $5. Located at 361 Metropolitan Ave.

Tuesday, March 23

Opera: The highlight of BAM's opera festival, "The Fairy Queen," starts tonight with a gala and dinner. It's a pretty pricey affair (individual tickets for full event access are available at $1,200 or $2,500, with a select number of non-dinner tickets available for $300), so you might want to try your luck at attending Wednesday's performance. Your wallet will thank you.
