Who’s bad?

The Prince and Michael Experience
Pick your pop icon, dress accordingly (sparkle glove, phallic guitar), and defend him on the dance floor, as DJs mix album cuts, remixes, rare tracks, and radio hits.
Why: Strong, supporting vocals from Sheila E., The Jackson 5, and Janet (Ms. Jackson, if you’re nasty).
When: Fri., 11 p.m.
Where: Brooklyn Bowl, 61 Wythe Ave., b/t N. 11th & N. 12th Sts., Williamsburg (718-963-3369). Admission is $5.

Grady’s Cold Brew
The New Orleans-style iced coffee concentrate ($15) makes eight cups of chilled joe.
Why: Mix with milk or cold water, pour over ice, and add sugar. Chicory-infused caffeination never tasted so good.
When: Urban Rustic, Mon.-Fri., 7 a.m.-9 p.m.; Sat. & Sun., 7 a.m.-8 p.m.; The Brooklyn Kitchen, Mon.-Sat., 10 a.m.-8 p.m.; Sun., noon-6 p.m.

Carte Blanche: Dieter Kosslick, the Culinary Cineaste
Ingenious food-and-film pairings devised by the Berlin International Film Festival director and chef Gabriel Kreuther (The Modern).
Why: Ratatouille-inspired panna cotta with yellow tomato coulis and three pinot noir varieties (plus charcuterie) for a Sideways perspective.
When: Thru Aug. 30. Schedule online at moma.org.
Where: Museum of Modern Art, 11 W. 53rd St., b/t 5th & 6th Aves. (212-708-9400).

The Hipster Puppies Pageant

What: Celebrate the Tumblr-turned-book with pugs that sport plaid and faux specs or bulldogs with a penchant for trucker hats and veganism.
