The Color Run Be a human canvas during this 5K, during which Downtown runners get regularly doused in powdered paint. It’s exercise, sure, but it’s also a selfie gold mine. February 27, 8 a.m., $15-$40.

Breaking Bad Walter White’s favorite meth-cooking getup, plus two gas masks and a rubber apron also used in the revered TV show, are now on permanent display at the Mob Museum. Begins February 26.

February 26 & 27, 8 p.m., $65-$100; February 28, 1 p.m., $30-$35; Brooklyn Bowl.
