The NYC Zombie Crawl. You know you want to.
New York This weekend, you could either 1) re-watch all seven seasons of Boy Meets World (because you feel like it, and NOT because Girl Meets World debuts next month), or 2) take things to the next, weird, dead-level with the eighth annual NYC Zombie Crawl, wherein you and about 1,000 other lunatics get together, dress up, drink, and stumble around Williamsburg.

Late-Night: You can check out Gwarlesque, which is -- you guessed it -- GWAR-themed burlesque, plus something everyone should at least see once in their lives: A HOT ZOMBIE CONTEST! For even more info on the crawl, head here
