Fall in love with everything Bay Ridge has to offer this weekend!

On Friday night, stroll hand-in-hand with your partner to the Danish Athletic Club (735-741 65th St. between Seventh and Eighth avenues), where crooner Martin McQuade will serenade attendees with three hours of classic romantic tunes, accompanied by pianist Dan Furman. The 7 pm show is free with dinner, or $10 without, and the bar will be open until 10 pm.

Those in more of a cold-hearted mood can instead rock out to Heartless Band at the Greenhouse Café (7717 Third Ave. between 77th and 78th streets). The quartet will cover songs of heartbreak and breakups — including “Love is Pain” and “Love is a Battlefield” — from rock legends Joan Jett, Pat Benatar, and Blondie, among others. And the free show does not start until 10 pm, so you lovebirds can still stop by if McQuade’s lovey-dovey serenades have left you feeling cynical.

On Saturday, take your date to dance the night away to classic party tunes by Cause and the Effects at the Wicked Monk (9510 Third Ave. between 95th and 96th streets), where the septet will play hits by Barry White, the Jackson Five, Justin Timberlake, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, among many more. The show starts at 11 pm, and it will be a cheap date — admission will only set you back $7.

And on Valentine’s Day itself, take a midweek music break with your sweetheart by waltzing over to the Brooklyn Firefly (7003 Third Ave. between Ovington Avenue and 72nd Street), where jazz vocalist Cristina Gatti will take the stage to belt out hits for a free two-hour show at 8 pm.
