Bay Ridge is so hot right now.

A fashion show is coming to a Ridge bar this weekend. But if you are pretty sure there’s a lot more to life than being really, really, ridiculously good looking, there are plenty of other places to strut your stuff in the neighborhood.

On Friday, pull your best “blue steel” and head to 2014’s fourth and final Third Avenue Summer Stroll (between 80th and 90th streets), where 10 blocks of Third Avenue will be closed to traffic and area shops and restaurants will spill out into the street.

Acoustic balladeer Bart Tesoriero will croon to crowds outside of Fillies (Third Avenue and 84th Street) at 6 pm, and piano impresario Tony Travis will work the keys at Third Avenue and 88th Street starting at 8:30 pm.

On Saturday, sashay over to Schnitzel Haus (7319 Fifth Ave. between 73rd and 74th streets), where you can channel your inner diva with ’60s throw-back songsters Steppin’ Back at 10 pm.

If contemporary rock is more your style, Three Jolly Pigeons (6802 Third Ave. at 68th Street) has you covered. High-energy blues-rockers Rag Tag will rock the block starting at 10 pm.

After you rock out, put the finishing touch on your Saturday night when Tarantino-chic rockers Reservoir Doggs set the soundtrack for the Wicked Threads fashion show at the Wicked Monk (9510 Third Ave. between 95th and 96th streets). You can show up fashionably late, but the show starts at 11 pm.

Reach reporter Max Jaeger at or by calling (718) 260-8303. Follow him on Twitter @MJaeger88.
