You've all seen the signs on the subway: the world is ending this Sunday. But that just means you've got to live it up even more for your last weekend on earth. We thought we'd help:

Madison Square Park Food Market1

When: Every Day, 11AM-9PM (until June 3rd)
Where: Madison Square Park

Fleece Fest @ Brooklyn Zoo
Why: If the world ends, at least you'll know how to sheer a sheep and make your own sweaters. Awesome for kids and bizarre adults.
When: Saturday and Sunday, 1-4 PM
Where: Prospect Park Zoo, 450 Flatbush Ave., BK; 718-399-7339

Don't Look Back @ Film Forum

Do it Yourself Post-Apocalyptic Puppet Making Class

Where: The Observatory Room. 543 Union St., BK; 718-243-1572
