If your ambitions lie in the sweets arena then check out the Dessert Goals fete coming to Dobbin St in Williamburg/Greenpoint on Saturday and Sunday. Think of it like a giant Instagram fest, with over a dozen sweets pushers selling their milkshakes, cookies, egg tarts, toffee, donuts and other sugary treats designed to be photographed. An "Instagram Garden" will be erected for the event and workshops ($50) will center around things like food styling and food photography. General admission to the event is $15.

New York City has tons of great breweries, but unless you have a hook up you're not getting to taste all the homebrews being secretly created in apartments around the five boroughs. The Brooklyn Homebrew Takedown is your opportunity to sample these small batch beers—and maybe taste the next great beer from a forthcoming brewery. The competition will be held at Hill Country Brooklyn on Sunday from 1 - 3 p.m.; tickets $25.
