There is too much activity in Bay Ridge to limit it to the nights!
We have a whole mess of things to do while the sun is still out this weekend! But some of it happens at the same time, so spend Friday night making your plan of attack for Saturday.
Parents of Bay Ridge can start Saturday at the Appletree Natural Market (7613 Third Ave. between 76th and 77th streets) at noon, where the Owl’s Head Park Horticulture Group offers a ton of free owl-centric kids’ activities, including making snow owls from pine cones and coloring owl images. And any donation to the group gets you a free potted herb! It is all part of the Bay Ridge Arts and Cultural Alliance’s Fourth Annual Embrace Winter Festival, which has other as-yet-unspecified activities happening at stores along Third Avenue between 69th and 81st streets, from noon to 5 pm.
At 4 pm you face a choice: The Canny Brothers Band will play an “Almost Saint Paddy’s Day” party at Red, White, and Brew (8910 Fifth Ave. between 89th and 90th streets). Or if you prefer the Grateful Dead, you can commune with the Dead Ridge Boys at Leif Bar (6725 Fifth. Ave between 67th and Senator streets).
After either show you can catch some rockin’ classic rock, blues, and alternative cover tunes courtesy of the Neighborhood Skells at Three Jolly Pigeons (6802 Third Ave. between 68th Street and Bay Ridge Avenue). They go on at 9:30 pm and will play past midnight.
Fans of the dramatic arts have two more chances to catch Narrows Community Theater perform local playwright Joseph Simonelli’s hilarious romantic comedy “Men Are Dogs” at Saint Patrick’s School Auditorium (401 97th St. between Fourth Avenue and Fort Hamilton Parkway). The final shows are on Saturday night at 8 pm and on Sunday at 2 pm. Tickets are $20 ($15 for seniors, so bring grandma!).
End your weekend at the Owl’s Head (479 74th Street between Fourth and Fifth avenues) for the Bay Ridge Poets Society open mic poetry night starting at 7:30 pm. Grab the microphone if you are a poet and you know it, or just sit back and enjoy the wine and verses.
