GOWANUS, FORT GREENE, 4TH AVENUE This is it people. If you don’t get your gifts by Sunday, you may not send them off, or pack them up in time for Xmas. Fortunately there are a handful of fairs this weekend (find an updated list here), including the Brooklyn Flea’s Gifted, The Lyceum Holiday Craft Marketplace, the Brooklyn Craft Central Market, and the oddest one yet, Proteus Gowanus’s Holiday Shopping Party this Sunday, 12-6pm. This is where you’ll find one-of-a-kind gifts for your arty friends, including a Pocket Cloud, complete with silver lining ($18), Taxidermy Mice adorned with wings and costumes ($70) or Miniature Library Furniture made from library catalogue cards ($20-$25).

From the carpet of bluebells at Brooklyn Botanic Garden to, barbecues, movies and punk rock yoga, Memorial Day weekend and beyond is looking pretty ideal.
Make yourself a cherry pie, whether or not you’re a Twin Peaks fanatic prepping for the return of the Agent Cooper, Sheriff Truman and the Double R Diner.
From bike parties to floating food forests, there’s a ton of great events to enjoy this week, but you’re forgiven if you just want to skip to Twin Peaks.
Some say that the neighborhood restaurant is a dying breed in New York City. Not at River Deli, which is not a deli at all, in Brooklyn Heights.
