Bay Ridge is hopping!

Looking to pass over Passover and grease your Easter? Look no further than a night out in Bay Ridge.

Friday is looking good, as Maybe Monday and its dance-happy mix of classic soul and Top 40 pop takes the Greenhouse [7717 Third Ave. between 77th and 78th streets] at 9 pm. At the same time, Cool Table will be rocking the Schnitzel Haus [7319 Fifth Ave. between 73rd and 74th streets] with classic ’60s acoustic tunes.

And that is just a preview to jam-packed Holy Saturday night.

If you like the oldies — the reeeeeally oldies — head out to Ristorante Vaccaro [6716 Fort Hamilton Pkwy. between 67th and 68th streets] in Dyker to hear singer Johnny Doo Wop belt out hits from his eponymous era. If that school is too old for you, head to the Monk [9510 Third Ave. between 95th and 96th streets] to hear Staten Island’s Good Noise covering everything from Weezer to Sam Cooke. Helping the band out will be Brooklyn’s own DJ John Paul Venuto, mashing up hip-hop and R&B with electronic dance music.

Or if you are looking to do some good on this sacred weekend — and have a good time doing it — hit a fund-raiser for a great causes, when No Quarter [8015 Fifth Ave. between 80th and 81st streets] throws a bash to combat multiple sclerosis at 7 pm. Just $5 at the door gets you a night of music and food, and there will be raffles and a 50/50.

Happy Easter and a blessed Passover!
