The Weekender

The Weekend Starts Here

You've been laboring hard. Take two days off. No, make it three.

Thursday
New York Burlesque Festival
THURSDAY CABARET

New York Burlesque Festival

You've always found it difficult to resist women in pasties. Don't fight it this weekend, with four nonstop days of tassel-spinning mischief. There's a teaser party tonight, a "filthy gorgeous" burlesque show tomorrow and a Saturday Spectacular at the Highline on Saturday.

Aug 30-Sept 2; for tickets to Saturday Spectacular at the Highline Ballroom, click here

Friday
Cloak Sale
FRIDAY SHOPPING

Cloak Sale

Word is this weekend you can grab up to 80% off the brand's coveted trousers, jackets, boots and—yes— cloaks.

Aug 30-Sept 3, 10 Greene (between Grand and Canal), 212-625-2828

Saturday
Hill Country Delivers
SATURDAY BARBECUE

Hill Country Delivers

What's better than steaming hunks of smoked brisket, pork spare ribs and mac and cheese? The same food wrapped in butcher paper and rushed to your door. Hill Country now delivers from 21st to 31st between 8th and Park. Or, order $200 worth and they'll bring it anywhere in Manhattan.

Hill Country, 30 W. 26th St (between Broadway and 6th Ave), 212-255-4544

Monday
Marc by Marc Jacobs Men's Store
MONDAY MARC

Marc by Marc Jacobs Men's Store

Debunking the myth that there can be too much of a good thing, Marc Jacobs opens his third store within a three-block radius. This one will sell the entire quirky men's line: sweatshirts, cardigans and jeans, plus ties and short-sleeved dress shirts, so you can resemble a hipper Andy Sipowicz.

382 Bleecker St (between Bank and 8th Ave)

Tuesday
Lexus Virtual Open at Rockefeller Center
TUESDAY TENNIS

Lexus Virtual Open at Rockefeller Center

It's all the excitement—OK, some of the excitement—of the U.S. Open without the trip to Flushing. Slam Wii serves on a mini-court for the chance to win a one-year lease on a Lexus IS F, the same car that Federer—er, the men's champ—will take away this year.
