We finally have great weather this weekend with temperatures in the mid-80s during the day and low-70s at night. So let’s get some plans on the books.

You can, if you were so inclined, pull a “Barbenheimer,” the much discussed idea of a “Barbie” and “Oppenheimer” doubleheader on both films’ opening weekend. We don’t necessarily recommend it, but if you were so inclined, you could do so at the Alamo Drafthouse downtown starting Friday.

BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! is offering up free shows and Drake wraps his decidedly not-free “It’s All a Blur” tour this weekend. Or, you can see the legendary Bertha Hope Quintet at the Brooklyn Museum on Sunday afternoon, then treat yourself to some free vanilla ice cream at Room43. There’s also a dog-friendly comedy show on Sunday night.

Even Kens can party like Barbie this weekend:

‘Barbenheimer’ hits theaters
Various showtimes at the Alamo Drafthouse
Robert Oppenheimer might’ve dropped the bomb 15 years before Barbie debuted on shelves, but they’re both getting their first major motion picture on Friday. “Barbie” is probably the only one getting a sequel, though. 445 Albee Square West.

‘Come on Barbie Let’s Go Party’ at The Springs
6 p.m.
Continue living out your Barbie fantasy at The Springs in Greenpoint on Friday night. The Springs will celebrate Barbie’s Hollywood debut by painting the town pink with a blowout Barbie Bash. Have your Malibu Moment on their Barbie-decorated patio. Throw back some Pink Party Punch along with other drink specials. Dancing is encouraged and pink attire is recommended. Kens are welcome, too. 224 Franklin Avenue.
