What You're Doing This Weekend, 6/13-14

Singing along with 'Hedwig,' judging a curry-off, touring 1920s gardens and more

SINGING OUT LOUD: East Germany, a "girlyboy," a plan to escape and a botched sex-change -- unlikely fodder for a hit musical, but John Cameron Mitchell's 'Hedwig and the Angry Inch' defied logic from the get-go. 92Y Tribeca screens the brilliant, exuberant film as an audience singalong. Better brush up on your lyrics to "Wig in a Box," schnell. Saturday, 11PM.

PEEKING AT THE PAST: It comes around only once a year: during the Historic Jackson Heights Weekend 2009, wander through lush, park-like private gardens surrounded by 1920s-era garden apartments -- it'll transport you to another place and time. Saturday, 12-4PM.

HEADING TO THE ISLE OF ART: Hop on the free ferry all weekend long to take in hundreds of different works of art dotting Governor's Island during Figment '09 (download the map of what's where here). Beware, wallflowers: A lot of the installations are participatory (interactive sculpture garden, anyone?). Friday through Sunday, 10AM-5PM.

CURRYING FLAVOR: Tofu, chili, bacon… we're well due for another takedown. And so Matt Timms brings you the Curry Takedown, where cooks face off with blazingly hot recipes -- from Jamaican to Thai to Indian, it's all curry. Come and taste and judge; proceeds go to the Women's Education Project. Loki Lounge, Park Slope, Sunday, 1PM.

FLEAING ROUTINE: You'll now have two days a week to browse the lovable Brooklyn Flea market: As of June 14, the Fort Greene mainstay adds Sundays to its schedule; on those days, the Flea regulars (we love you, Red Hook pupusa vendors!) will now be camped out in DUMBO's beautiful Brooklyn Bridge Park. Sunday, 9AM(ish) 'til crowds thin.

And don't forget to pork out at the Big Apple BBQ.
