Good morning, Fort Greene and Clinton Hill.
So much for that sunny summer-like weather, at least for today. We’ll likely see some rain for the next few days, according to the National Weather Service. Temperatures will remain warm, sticking around the high-60s through Sunday. What are your favorite rainy day activities? Tell us in the comments.
Here’s some ways to spend your time this week:
- Early risers interested in exploring the factories and manufacturers at the Brooklyn Navy Yard should get a move-on: this morning, BLDG 92 hosts a tour of the woodworking workshops that have made the navy yard their home. Come meet the cabinet makers and furniture builders in their own spaces and learn about their crafts. Tickets are $15, or $12 if you’re a member of BLDG 92, and can be bought here. The tour starts at 10:30 a.m.
- The Brooklyn Academy of Music’s “Eat, Drink & Be Literary” festival continues tonight with a talk by cartoonist Alison Bechdel. The Eisner Award-winning author of “Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic,” “Are You My Mother?” and the comic strip “Dykes to Watch Out For” will be joined in conversation by fellow author Ben Greenman. Tickets are on sale here for $55 or $46.75 with a subscription. The event begins at 6:30 p.m. tonight at the Peter Jay Sharp building on 30 Lafayette Avenue.
- Starting tomorrow, BRICArts Media’s 26th Annual Student Exhibition will be joined by a pair of solo art shows covering the walls outside of the building. The artists, Vandana Jain and Melissa Godoy Nieto examine contemporary culture through their work: Jain places corporate logos and slogans in religious contexts, while Nieto’s Mexican heritage is evident in her hand-made pieces. These free exhibits will be on display at 647 Fulton Street Tuesdays through Sundays from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
