Pop-up parties, hip-hop show-ups and shows up in the sky are on tap this weekend in the Hamptons.
FIREWORKS ON THE FOURTH
You'll find them on the South Fork Friday in Montauk at 9 p.m. (All town beaches are considered good viewing spots.) Otherwise, the place to be is Southampton Fresh Air Home's annual picnic benefit gala, which caps with a dazzling fireworks display over Shinnecock Bay ($300, 36 Barkers Island Rd., sfah.org).
Nightlife impresario Travis Bass has a history of launching pop-up clubs in Manhattan -- see what he's up to now at The Bathing Club at Capri, where he's hosting a party Saturday. No cover charge, but reservations are a must. 2-7 p.m., 281 County Rd., Southampton, 631-504- 6575, email@example.com
Grammy-nominated MC 2 Chainz is currently on tour, but he'll be stopping between shows in the U.K. and Seattle to host and perform at 1 OAK Saturday. Table reservations the best bet. 125 Tuckahoe Lane, Southampton, 631-204-5433, reservations@ 1oakhamptons.com

WE HEAR THAT...
A rare exhibition of art by Bob Dylan (yes, that Bob Dylan) will be shown at Mark Borghi Fine Art (2426 Main St., Bridgehampton, 631-537-7245, borghi.org). “The Drawn Blank Series,” featuring paintings based on drawings and sketches Dylan made while on the road from 1989 to 1992, opens July 3 from 6-9 p.m. and runs until July 18. It marks the first time the works are being shown in the U.S. outside of the Gagosian Gallery.
