The Weekend Guide

terrance simien!

Everyone left. It’s yours for the taking.

Cajun Dance Party
Mardi Gras moves to Brooklyn Bridge Park with legit Louisiana Creole (and Grammy-toting) Terrance Simien and his zydeco beats.
Why: Replace your go-to noodling with free dance lessons from Jalopy Theatre and School of Music, while Jesse Lége and Bayou Brew provide traditional Cajun tunes.
When: Tonight, 7 p.m.
Where: Pier 1, 2 Old Fulton St., at Furman St.

Rooftop Films: Dark Toons
What: Get sufficiently creeped out by eleven frightening animated shorts while lounging atop a high school in an artfully tagged space.
Why: Stave off nightmares with free drinks that follow at R Bar.
When: Fri., 8 p.m.
Where: Open Road Rooftop, 350 Grand St., at Ludlow St. Tickets ($12) at rooftopfilms.ticketleap.com or at the door.

Up-and-coming designers skip the highbrow, astronomically priced prototypes in favor of objets d’art you can actually use — and afford.
A reusable bag that collapses with parachute mechanics, citronella-scented postcards, and a music box that adjusts to the crowd.
Thru June 8. Daily, noon-7 p.m.
The Future Perfect Pop-Up Shop, 2 Cooper Sq., at E. 4th St. (212-473-2500).

Assembly New York Memorial Day Weekend Sale

What: The editor favorite marks every last item in the store (and online) 20 percent off.

Tracy Reese Sample Sale
Pop in for patterned goodness when one-of-a-kind pieces from this season’s collection go for $35-$50.
Why: Unpacking last summer’s wares wasn’t nearly as exciting as you thought it’d be.
When: Today & Fri., 9 a.m.-7 p.m.
Where: 264 W. 40th St., b/t Seventh & Eight Aves., 2nd flr. (212-807-0505).
