Bay Ridge’s biggest day may be in the rear-view mirror, but there are plenty of reasons to keep on truckin’.

We wanted to extend our special Saint Patrick’s Day-themed Bay Ridge Nights for another week but alas laddies, it seems most of Bay Ridge is still recovering from last weekend’s parade — and its associated drinking.

But on Saturday, one local pub is keeping the Irish fires burning! Traditional Irish trio Brooklyn Bards will fiddle around the stage at Red, White, and Brew (8910 Fifth Ave. between 89th and 90th streets), starting at 4 pm and will staying until 8 pm. There is no green beer, but buckets of domestic bottles are $20, and margaritas and sangria are $5 a pop.

Then you have plenty of time to mosey up to Three Jolly Pigeons (6802 Third Ave. between 68th Street and Bay Ridge Avenue) for a double-header starting at 10 pm. It starts with “a raucous set of surf instrumentals, whiskey-soaked cowboy crooning, and rowdy rockers,” from locals Band of Others, and the Good Yeggs follow them at 11 pm with a mix of original and cover tunes.Or you can head to the Wicked Monk (9510 Third Ave between 95th and 96th streets) at 11 pm to catch New Jersey cover rockers Johnny Drama. These boys from the Garden state will stay on stage until 3 am, so no matter where you start your night, you can still end your night — or your early morning — with a bang.

Plenty of Bay Ridge’s great restaurants will serve up a special Easter brunch on Sunday, but the Greenhouse Cafe (7717 Third Ave between 77th and 78th streets) has flipped that tradition on its head by serving Easter dinner starting at 11 am. The Easter bunny must have used up all the eggs, so instead of an omelette, you can skip right to the roasted rack of lamb, shell steak, or shrimp scampi.
