2. After 20,000 people showed up for one of the Brooklyn Museum's Target First Saturdays dance parties, the organizers decided to take a break -- at least on that part of the evening's festivities. Tomorrow there will still be plenty of reasons to check out the free event, including a conversation with the artist Mickalene Thomas at 8:30 p.m., and performances by the all-girl tribute band Lez Zeppelin (7:30 p.m.) and Das Racist's Heems (9 p.m.).
