4. If you like your beer with bite, get to the Brooklyn Sour Beer Fest, featuring different styles of sour brews from Brooklyn and Queens, plus one outlier from Long Island. (Tuesday, Glorietta Baldy, FREE)

7. Go through the looking glass at brooklyn theatre club’s Welcome Alice, an unusual production of Alice in Wonderland where the audience is cast as Alice. It promises to be “part musical theatre, part drunken singalong, and all fun.” (Thursday, Muchmore’s, $15)
