Winter weather is here, so let Bay Ridge’s myriad bar rooms swaddle you in their bourbon embrace!

There is plenty to do this weekend, so bundle up and get out there.

The sounds of the deep South will warm you on a cold Friday evening. Blues outfit Tomcat and the Whiskey Rats is firing off red-hot blue notes at Greenhouse Cafe (7717 Third Avenue between 77th and 78th streets) at 10 pm.

On Saturday, you can do a good deed and get a little tipsy at the Police Families Matter Fundraiser at No Quarter (8015 Fifth Avenue between 80th and 81st streets). The pirate pub is raising money for the Stephen Stiller Tunnels to Towers Foundation, which aims to gather $275,000 to help pay slain officers Rafael Ramos’s and Wenjian Liu’s mortgages. Ten bucks at the door gets you a free shot, food, and raffle tickets. Do your part at 6 pm.

And just when you thought your night couldn’t get any more patriotic, head to the Leif Bar (6725 Fifth Avenue between 67th and Senator streets) for the blue-collar anthems of Bruce Springsteen tribute band Saints in the City at 9:30 pm.

On Sunday, get schooled in rock by a school administrator, an insurance agent, and a criminal court judge as classic rock cover group Whippoorwill shakes, rattles, and rolls Hunter’s Steak and Ale House (9404 Fourth Avenue between 94th and 95th streets). They do a mean Traveling Wilburys cover. Class starts at 5 pm.
