The weekend: 4.16-4.18

First off - sorry we missed last week's roundup. Things got a little swamped leading up to the weekend. But there's lots going on this week that we'd love to share. Here's a look at what's happening in a neighborhood near you:

Friday, April 16

Dance: STREB's latest has its dancers running up walls, as well as dodging cinder blocks and flying through the air. Now through May 23 at their Wililamsburg SLAM - it's like a warehouse circus.

Saturday, April 17

Skateboards: Catch the action at Gowanus Grind, a all-day skateboarding affair in, naturally, the Gowanus, at Thomas Greene Park.

Toys: Like playing with LEGOs? Join Christoph Niemann, author of "I LEGO NY," at a reading at powerHouse Arena in DUMBO, where you can bring your own LEGO formations. The three best win a copy of his new coffee table book.

Dance party: Love the cherry blossom season? So does the Bell House in Gowanus, which is hosting a party tonight devoted to spring, featuring Haruka Salt 99 and DJ Tikka Masala. 11 pm. Tickets $10. Located at 149 Seventh St. between Second and Third avenues.

Sunday, April 18

Food: Eat all the lamb you can muster at the Lamb Takedown at the Bell House. Ewe will be rocked.

Art: Get a bit of history at Williamsburg's City Reliquary with their new exhibition, "The Vanishing Icons of Metropolitan Avenue: A History of Williamsburg's Handmade Shop Signs," featuring work by pioneering graphic artist Stanley Wisniewolski. Runs now through mid-July. Located at 370 Metropolitan Ave. near Havemayer Street.
