The mercury may be dipping below freezing, but Bay Ridge is heating up with sultry jazz and rock ’n’ roll!

You may have survived the first storm of the season, but it’s going to be another cold one on the Ridge this weekend with plenty of snow flurries. Rather than going stir crazy for the second weekend in a row, we suggest you cozy up in a local watering hole and give yourself the illusion of warmth with a few cold ones.

On Friday, warm up your heart with some crooning at the Greenhouse Cafe (7717 Third Ave. between 77th and 78th streets). Local rock-pop-doo-wop fusion group the Remnants will ease you into the weekend with some soulful slow jams at 10 pm.

Come Saturday, kick it up at notch at Red, White, and Brew (8910 Fifth Ave. between 89th and 90th streets) with Rock Farm. The four-piece group will plow through all the best rock and dance tunes of the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s as you plow through the barroom’s drink specials. Sip $5 margaritas and sangria or bask in warm euphoria with the $40 all-you-can-drink beer, wine, and well drinks. The boozy bash kicks off at 4 pm.

Once you’re liquored up, go hard with the aptly named heavy metal group Quartet of Catastrophe at No Quarter (8015 5th Ave. between 81st and 82nd). Known for flashy light displays, screaming guitar riffs, and raspy vocals, the band will have you head banging to the beat starting at 10 pm.

Or if the booze has made you mellow, cap off the evening at pizza joint and jazz club the Brooklyn Firefly (7003 Third Ave. at Ovington Avenue). Starting at 9 pm, sultry songstress Julia Haltigan will break some hearts with tunes from her new album “Hot Tears” — including the romantic but apocalyptic song “Beneath the Mushroom Cloud.” You can match the song with a mushroom pie, and drown any sorrows with the bar’s fiery Firefly Hot Toddy.

Reach reporter Caroline Spivack at or by calling (718) 260–2523. Follow her on Twitter @carolinespivack.
