Bay Ridge has not given up going out for Lent! In fact, the Ridge is packed with plenty of chances to sin this weekend. You can always repent on Sunday, right?
On Friday, you can indulge while abstaining from meat with the deep-fried seafood Lent specials at the Kettle Black (8622 Third Ave. at 87th Street). Sink your teeth into an ale-battered shrimp po’ boy served on a bed of Cajun fries, the jumbo lump crab cakes tossed in Creole tomato sauce — “red gravy” as it is called in New Orleans — or go for the gluttony with the Big Jim Fish Sammi, a citrus-crusted fillet sandwich served with wasabi tartar sauce. Entrees range from $13 to $15.
Come Saturday you have plenty of options to imbibe at local watering holes and get down to the devil’s music – rock ’n’ roll! And the party gets started while the sun is still up! Kick things off at Leif Bar (6725 Fifth Ave. between 67th and Senator streets) at 4 pm with classic British invasion rockers London Fogg. Or you can dash over to Red, White, and Brew (8910 Fifth Ave. between 89th and 90th streets) for a psychedelic set list from Generation Gap at 4 pm and plenty of drink specials — we suggest the $6 Bloody Mary. Then let your better angels guide you to the Greenhouse Café (7717 Third Ave. between 77th and 78th streets) at 10 pm for rock trio Full Disclosure, who will bring down the Greenhouse with covers from the likes of Led Zeppelin, Guns ’N’ Roses, and AC/DC. Finally, cap off your wild night with the Wild Hearted Sons at the Wicked Monk (9510 Third Ave. between 95th and 96th streets) at 11 pm. You can truly cut loose at this naughty monastery — it’s a judgment-free zone — although your head may hurt like the devil in the morning.
