Free movies, a very educational happy hour, and a whole lot of rock are waiting for you in Bay Ridge this weekend.

Talk about shot for teacher! On Friday, school is out for summer, and The Pour House (7901 Third Ave. between 79th and 80th streets) is throwing a party for the area’s hard-working pedagogues. But you don’t have to be a teacher to enjoy the drink specials. Glass is in session as soon as school dismisses, so don’t be tardy.

Then, stumble over to the Narrows Botanical Garden (Shore Road between Bay Ridge Avenue and 72nd Street) for a free screening of the 1989 John Candy classic “Uncle Buck” at 8:30 pm. In the flick, a family entrusts wacky uncle Buck Russell (Candy) to watch their kids for the evening — the greatest idea ever, second to showing free movies at the garden.

Saturday is supposed to be a rainy one, so stay dry — and wet only your whistle — at some of the neighborhood’s best watering holes.

It is a color-themed match made in heaven when rockers Out of the Blue play at Red, White, and Brew (8910 Fifth Avenue between 89th and 90th streets) at 4 pm.

Get to the Greenhouse Cafe (7717 Third Avenue between 77th and 78th streets) by 10 pm to catch Brit-pop and garage throwback maestros The Windsor Terrors. These guys have been around the block a hundred times and they still know how to rock, so go show them some love.

You saw him in Out of the Blue, now see him solo on Sunday — Max Christopher will play at Schnitzel Haus (7319 Fifth Avenue between 73rd and 74th streets) at 4 pm.

Then gambol back over to Greenhouse Cafe to catch crooners Tommy Andersen and Mary Ellen at 6 pm.

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