Third time’s the charm for Bay Ridge!

Start your Friday night off right with the summer’s third Summer Stroll on Third [Third Avenue between 80th and 90th Streets]. The 10-block stretch will close to traffic at 6 pm so that Bay Ridgites can wander along a pedestrian plaza. Neighborhood bands will play tunes out on the street, local restaurants will set up seating on the street and serve some fine food outdoors, and the BookMark Shoppe (8415 Third Ave. between 84th and 85th streets) will host authors and artists in front of the shop. There will also be plenty of activities for kids, with face-painting and glitter stickers at different spots along the Stroll. Take the evening to enjoy yourself and maybe even catch up with some old friends — you’ve got until 10:30 pm.

Continue your great weekend by getting a fantastic look at the stars on Saturday night, when the Urban Park Rangers set up at Owl’s Head Park [enter at Colonial Road and 68th Street]. The Rangers will explain the history of astronomy, folklore, and the science of our solar system — and best of all, they will provide binoculars and telescopes for star-gazing from 8 to 9 pm.

After you’re done looking at the stars, then go out on the town by rocking down to Schnitzel Haus [7319 Fifth Ave. between 73rd and 74th streets] at 9 pm. The band Identity Theft will play your favorite classic rock, pop, blues and funk bands with special guest drummer Dennis Rizzo. When you need to refuel for more rocking out, Schnitzel Haus offers an authentic German menu, along with the best German and Belgian biers in all of Brooklyn!

And if you are ready for more tunes, run down to Shore Road Park (Shore Road at 79th Street) on Tuesday night. State Sen. Marty Golden’s Concert in the Park series will feature classic rock from the band On a Good Run, starting at 7 pm.
