Find romance in the Ridge!

The temperature is dropping, but things are really steaming up in Bay Ridge!

A Christian singles night could help you find someone to share body warmth in the coming winter — which is lucky, because Grandmother’s Predictions down in Coney is forecasting a cold one! Sure, you could always snag some stranger at a neighborhood watering holes, but how fun could life with a barfly be? Wait, don’t answer that! Instead, we are suggesting a compromise — one night of debauchery followed by a lifetime of devotion.

So Friday night is all about getting those promiscuous urges out of your system. Get your game face on with Lords of the Fjords at Pipin’s Pub (9701 Third Ave. between 97th Street and Marine Avenue) at 10 pm. Then fly over to Three Jolly Pigeons (6802 Third Ave. between at 68th Street) for karaoke with Jukebox Johnny, where you can sing, preen, and otherwise strut your stuff in search of a nest mate. But get him or her home quick, because your polyamorous party carriage turns into a sober, dignified pumpkin of monogamy at midnight.

On Saturday, it is time to start the long game. Head to First Evangelical Free Church (6501 Sixth Ave. at 66th street) for a singles night that could secure you an eternal bedfellow and stave off eternal damnation. The religious romantics will get your mojo flowing with a hot Italian buffet and dessert, and it starts at 5:30 pm, so you will have plenty of time to see where the night takes you. Did we mention free parking? The whole shebang is $15.

Whatever you do after the singles night, steer clear of the Wicked Monk (9510 Third Ave. between 95th and 96th streets) at 11 pm — Screaming Broccoli is playing and the whole affair sounds decidedly unwholesome.

Instead, take your new sweetheart to Owl’s Head Park [Colonial Road and 68th Street] to watch the sunset. Your days of partying Bay Ridge-style are over — until next week!
