Rock the vote in the Ridge this weekend!
You made it through Election 2014, and now that you have done your civic duty (you did vote, right?), it is time to sit back, crack open a cold one, and wait for the freedom to roll in. In the meanwhile, you can elect to check out some great neighborhood music.
On Friday, head over to Schnitzel Haus (7319 Fifth Ave. between 73rd and 74th streets) and order up some wine punch, because classic rock cover band Spodie Odie takes the stage at 9:30 pm.
After the Spodie Odie starts going to your head, head to Greenhouse Cafe (7717 Third Ave. between 77th and 78th streets) where Maybe Monday’s soulful song-craft will be a constant reminder that it is still Friday and the weekend is laid out ahead of you.
Start your Saturday night by taking the high road to Three Jolly Pigeons (6802 Third Ave. between 68th Street and Bay Ridge Avenue), where Belt Pkwy West will rock the coop. The traffic jam starts at 10 pm.
Then, prostrate yourself before the altar of rock as medley and mash-up maestros No Standards shake up the Wicked Monk (9510 Third Ave. between 95th and 96th streets) at 11 pm.
On Sunday, it is time to embrace that wee bit of Irish in us all. Jig over to Hunter’s Steak and Ale House (9404 Fourth Ave. between 94th and 95th streets) to catch guitar-and-penny-whistle duo Brooklyn Bards at 5 pm.
