Bay Ridge Nights gets hot and heavy

The weather report predicts a hot and heavy weekend above 65th Street — because Bay Ridge is for lovers.

On Feb. 14, the warmest and fuzziest day of the year, bring your funny Valentine to Schnitzel Haus [7319 Fifth Ave. between 73rd and 74th streets] to hear the classic acoustic sounds of Max Christopher at 7 pm. Christopher usually plays with popular local band Out of the Blue, but Friday night he will be going solo, playing classics of the 1960s and ’70s.

Or maybe you are dying to hear that special song you and your special someone danced to so long ago — the one you cannot seem to find on iTunes. Then the place for you on Valentine’s Day is the Greenhouse Cafe [7717 Third Ave. between 77th and 78th streets], where DJ Suds will be manning the tables. Suds is a veteran crate digger with a 220,000-song catalogue, ranging from ’50s classics to contemporary hits, and he will be taking your requests starting at 10 pm.

On Saturday, bring the one you are head-over-heels for to see Head Over Heels at the Monk [9510 Third Ave. between 95th and 96th streets]. The band will start blasting out its repertoire of everything from Southern rock to today’s hits at 11 pm. Or hit No Quarter [8015 Fifth Ave. between 80th and 81st streets] at 9:30 pm to hear Off the Record play a high-intensity set of everything from Stevie Wonder to Smash Mouth.

You cannot go wrong with the classics, so bring your steady date back to the Greenhouse Cafe on Saturday night to hear a set by everyone’s favorite party band Frankie Marra & His Band.
