It’s the time of the season for Bay Ridge

Bay Ridge Nights is back, letting you know where to take cover from those pesky April showers — before the month of May flowers!

And where better to start than at the Greenhouse [7717 Third Ave. between 77th and 78th streets]? Friday night at 9:30 pm, you can catch Uncle Jack covering your favorite hits from the 1950s through today.

Feeling bad that you missed Mardi Gras last month? Don’t worry — you can still experience the dirty, greasy, down-low sounds of the Big Easy at the Schnitzel Haus [7319 Fifth Ave. between 73rd and 74th streets]. Dave Clive’s Nawlins Funk Band takes the stage at 9 pm on Saturday, playing bluesy, bassy cuts from its new Coney Island-themed album. Prefer your beats a bit more modern? Hit the Wicked Monk [9510 Third Ave. between 95th and 96th streets] at 11 pm for Hello Brooklyn’s show. The band will be cranking out top 40, dance, and hip-hop hits until the sun comes up — assuming the sun comes up by 3 am.

After that wild weekend, switch gears to a more family-friendly style of fun and help keep a great Bay Ridge tradition alive by swinging by the Norwegian Independence Day Parade fund-raiser at the Salty Dog [7509 Third Ave. between 75th and 76th streets] at 4 pm. It costs just $20 to keep the event marching on, and there will be a light buffet and dessert — plus raffles, door prizes, a 50/50, and much more to reward your support.
