Happy weekend! Two words: Big trucks. The Children’s Museum of the East End is hosting its second annual “Big Truck Day” this Saturday, and we’re probably a bit more excited than we should be (given we’re in our 40s). The event, from 10 a.m. to noon, will feature a cement truck, tow truck, dump truck PLUS a pay loader, 18-wheeler cab, a pair of food trucks and more. “Kids get to learn about the important role big trucks play in our community,” says Liz Bard, the museum’s education coordinator. Many trucks are owned by area businesses, which helps further the museum’s goal of building “strong connections on the East End by providing playful experiences,” Bard adds. Can we all have a goal of providing more playful experiences, please?

And now, in breaking pottery news…

Drop everything (except for your ceramic coffee mug) and listen to this: Our friends at the Clay Art Guild of the Hamptons are hosting a Potter’s Market at the Bridgehampton Museum Archives on Saturday and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. In case you didn’t realize, pottery is cool, because it’s been done for thousands of years here in the Hamptons. As soon as the glaciers receded, people were making ceramics, dammit. So go buy some cool handmade, locally made stuff. Details here. Admission is free.

Did someone say discount rosé?

As always, the Bee likes to bring you news you can use. If you find yourself in Montauk, then stop by Finest Kinds Wine, where — starting today — rosé will be 20% off. It’s “a great way to keep the summer going and save a little money,” say the proprietors. Amen.

On tap for the weekend..

*The Watermill Center, the arts lab in Water Mill, will present the final installment of its “International Brunch Series” on Sunday at noon, followed by a special presentation by Norwegian resident artist Tori Wrånes. We hope lingonberries will be served…

*Zigmund’s, the new bar inspired by an old bar (in the same location, in the ’90s, called The Wild Rose), will host the retro sounds of DJ Drop on Saturday. “If you like 70’s funk disco, 80’s pop and old school hip-hop, you know where to be,” says Zigmund’s. But can we watch Friends?

Townline BBQ, open these days Thursday-Monday, is offering football-season drink specials — such as Cuba Libres, none of this Bud Light nonsense — and free games of pool…

Social Media Quote of the Day

“Pardon the gratuitous rainbow post but there were pots of gold in Bushwick this afternoon.” — Pilgrim Surf and Supply (which has a location in Brooklyn as well as Amagansett), posting this lovely weather-related photo to Instagram.
