Why This Weekend Will Be Spectacular

Cool things to do in Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill, Boerum Hill and nearby

Searching for something to do this weekend? We've got you covered. In fact, there are so many events competing for your attention, you may find yourself double-booked! Let us narrow it down for you.

Here are five cool things in Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill, Boerum Hill and nearby:

1. The Last Hurrah for Dekalb Market 

The pop-up market at Flatbush Avenue is closing for the season after this weekend. Say bon voyage by shopping your heart out on Saturday or hitting the Goodbye Party on Sunday, September 30. From 3 – 9pm there will be various activities, including authentic cebuano lechon roast, endless games of ping pong, shopping specials, a bouncy castle and live music by the likes of Monogold, Dinowalrus, Sinkane, and DJ Beacon. 

2. The Last Pie Social at Bubby's Before it Closes

The pie social is an annual event at which amateur bakers bake pies to benefit Public School 150 in TriBeCa and the High School for Food and Finance. Then the lucky public gets to taste them. This year is extra special because it is the last one that will take place at 1 Main Street, before Bubby's relocates to another Brooklyn outpost. Event will take place on Sunday, September 30 from 12 to 3 p.m.; tickets are $27.37. To purchase tickets and find further details, visit Bubbys.com 

3. The 38th Annual Atlantic Antic (Definitely Not the Last)

From Hicks Street to Fourth Avenue, vendors will line Atlantic selling goods, serving delicious foods and creating a convivial, festive time all families can enjoy at the Atlantic Antic.

Be sure to pop by Boerum Hill restaurant Hopeland Food & Liquor's stand, which will be cooking fresh Cavatelli with short rib ragu—one of their signature dishes—as well as Black Italian Kale Salad (vegan) and Porchetta, all in the style of an Italian Sagra...

4. The Last Exit Atlantic Antic After Party

Still fired up after a day at the best street party in Brooklyn? Keep it going over at Last Exit, where DJs will spin '60s rock, reggae, and soul. 

5. First Taste of Roman Street Food at Broken English

Try a new “on-the-road version of Roman cuisine." Prepared hours in advance, trapizzino is chef Stefano Callegari's own creation made from triangles of flatbread topped with a variety of Roman flavors, such as chicken cacciatora, oxtail in tomato sauce, salt cod and beef meatballs, then served in folded paper. Some will be sampled on Saturday, September 29 at Broken English from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.


Bonus: The Deedle Dees will perform their last children's concert of the season at Carroll Park on Saturday, September 29 from 2 to 4 p.m.
