Happy New Year, Bay Ridge!
You made it through another year! And although 2016 was a bumpy ride, here’s hoping the best is yet to come in 2017! And if your New Year’s resolution is to tap into your inner party animal and enjoy the finer things in life — such as wetting your whistle at local watering holes — Bay Ridge Nights has got you covered!
On Friday, hustle over to the Greenhouse Cafe (7717 Third Ave. between 77th and 78th streets) for a musical time warp with disco duo Generation Gap. It’s a great stop if you resolved to shed some pounds this year, because this vocalist-keyboard team will have you groovin’ on the dance floor like it’s 1979. The disco fever will take you over at 10 pm.
Then trek over to Red, White, and Brew (8910 Fifth Ave. between 89th and 90th streets) on Saturday for seven-piece Brit-rock band London Fogg at 4 pm. Sip on a gin and tonic in proper Brit fashion as you twist to hits from the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, and the Animals, among others. Or hit the sauce hard with the bar’s $40 all-you-can-drink beer, wine, and well drinks special.
Wind the weekend down on Sunday at Hunter’s Steak and Ale House (9404 Fourth Ave. between 94th and 95th streets) with local songster Tommy Andersen. Sit back and enjoy a hearty meal at the bistro while being you are transported to simpler times with soulful oldies by the likes of Frank Sinatra, and from the Brothers both Righteous and Everly. The classic crooner will take the stage at 5 pm.
