Bushwick Open Studios

If you’ve always fancied a nose round this postindustrial neighborhood but weren’t sure where to start, begin at Bushwick Open Studios, a three-day fest that puts the nabe’s creative side on display. Start at the hubs set up in galleries and storefronts to help direct visitors to what’s on offer, but here’s a couple of choice events to hit: The launch party at Shea Stadium (May 31 8pm–2am) features local bands Eula, Air Waves, Lodro and Darlings, plus a Brooklyn Brewery open bar (8–9pm); premier arts venue 3rd Ward hosts an exhibit of more than 30 Brooklyn-based and international artists (Fri 7:30–11pm; Sat, Sun noon–7pm; May 31–June 16); the music continues with live, local combos performing at Don Pedro (May 31 8pm–2am) and Lone Wolf (1089 Broadway at Dodworth St, Bushwick, Brooklyn; 718-455-2028; June 1 7pm–3am), while DJs cater to the late-night electronic-dance-music fan at Bossa Nova Civic Club (June 2 10pm–4am); finally, catch the the closing blowout CinemaSunday, a video-art screening party and backyard barbecue at Bat Haus (279 Starr St between St. Nicholas and Wyckoff Aves, Bushwick, Brooklyn; 347-790-9204, batha.us; June 2 6pm–1am).
