A little rain never hurt the weekend.

Thursday

SALE-ING

50% Off at Hollander & Lexer

This antique-flavored and retro-leaning menswear boutique is knocking half off just about everything in the store, which means Robert Geller linen shorts for $120, Nice Collective's safari pea coats for $197 and an Engineered Garments "baker" jacket for $145. Sadly, the butcher and candlestick-maker jackets are still full price.

Mon-Sat 11am-7pm, Sun 12-6pm, thru Aug 15, 358 Atlantic Ave, Brooklyn, 718-797- 9190

Pop-Up Wine Bar at MAD
MUSEUM-HOPPING

Pop-Up Wine Bar at MAD

Highbrow design goes down a lot easier with a few glasses of wine on the side—or better yet, a few bottles. Columbus Circle's art and design museum is trying out the oldest room-filler in the book with a pop-up called MADCrush, which will feature wine-box furniture, a seventh-story Central Park view and a whole lot of vino. It's just like a Met fundraiser…give or take the cardboard bar.

Friday
An LES Bea Arthur Tribute
BEA YOURSELF

An LES Bea Arthur Tribute

Nothing draws a crowd like a Bea Arthur tribute, so the nostalgists at Mason Dixon are devoting this Friday night to the fallen Golden Girl, with Arthurian screenings, interpretive reenactments of a few historic performances and a beer-and-vodka cocktail dubbed Bea Arthur's Underpants. Like the underpants themselves, it's not for the faint of heart.

8:30pm, July 31, Mason Dixon, 133 Essex St, 212-260-4100

Jay-Z at All Points West
99 PROBLEMS

Jay-Z at All Points West

With the Beastie Boys suddenly sidelined, Mr. Carter is stepping into the headlining spot at tomorrow night's All Points West show (also including Fleet Foxes, Vampire Weekend and The National) featuring Jersey-defying levels of insouciance and new diss tracks targeting Soulja Boy, Bruce Ratner and the cast of Grey's Anatomy.

Saturday
South Street Seaport's New Corn Cart
COBBING

South Street Seaport's New Corn Cart

The city's cart food renaissance continues with this looser riff on the spiced cobs at La Esquina. This time, it's cups of steamed corn, shaved off the cob, laced with anything from Parmesan to honey and chili pepper. The catch: like the schnitzel truck, this cart can be elusive, and you'll have to get lucky to catch them when they're open. Just cross your fingers and follow the line of kernel-covered bankers.
