10 Weekend Ideas Under $10: Lakeside at Prospect Park Opens and Party Like It's 1999

Categories: Events

Don't let go, Jack!
Before the onslaught of family Christmas time takes over, there's one more weekend of fun to be had. El Museo Del Barrio and Kanine Records will be hosting special holiday parties, and the Bell House takes us back in time to the '90s with a Titanic-themed showdown. Happy Holidays!


[Recreation] Just in time for the holidays, the much anticipated Lakeside Skating Center in Prospect Park features both an outdoor and covered rink and café on 26 acres of parkland. Kudos to the Prospect Park Alliance, which raised $19 million in private donations toward the cost of the $74 million skating center, which will operate year-round, with roller skating in warm weather. Only a three-minute walk from the Parkside Station on the B and Q lines, the rink is open seven days a week. -- AB

At 9 a.m., Prospect Park, Brooklyn, $6-$8, children under 12 skate for free; skate rental is $5.

[Art] The Living Gallery presents a one-night-only exhibition featuring work by Isaac Brune and Geanette Tywang. Both artists share visions inspired by life in New York, pop culture, and their childhood experiences. Brune's work has been seen in shows at Webster Hall, and this is Tywang's debut. Both artists will be on hand to discuss their art and their methods. Tonight's event includes music by DJ Jamesy, as well as free wine, beer, and light snacks.

At 8 p.m., The Living Gallery, Brooklyn, $4.

[Art] Painter, graphic novelist, and native New Yorker, Eric Drooker presents a musical slide lecture about growing up in Lower Manhattan. Also performing are punk veteran Dr. Stza Crack and Lauren Oakes. Drooker's work has previously appeared on the cover of the New Yorker, among other places.

At 8 p.m., The Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space, $5.


[Holidays] Celebrate the holidays at El Museo Del Barrio's SUPER SÁBADO! Partake in holiday activities including crown-making, lively traditional sing-alongs, and a concert by the inspiring music of El Sistema.

At 11 a.m., El Museo Del Barrio, free.
