Spring is in the Bay Ridge air!

The mercury is steadily rising and the Ridge is in bloom, so it is time to take advantage of the warm weather with some yoga in the park, a street festival, and sip some seasonal brews at your local watering holes.

On Friday, limber up at Shore Road Park (enter the park at 79th Street and Shore Road and hang a left to the parkhouse) with this year’s first session of Yoga In The Park at 7 pm. Whether you are a seasoned yogi who can contort into the wounded peacock pose, or a newbie who prefers meditating in the child’s pose, you will be welcome at this class for all skill levels. Just bring your own mat (or a beach towel) and you will be all set to get supple at sunset.

Spring may be here, but winter is coming to Longbow Pub and Pantry (7316 Third Ave. between 73rd and 74th streets)! Upstate brewery Ommegang has released the latest in its “Game of Thrones” beer series to honor the show’s latest season, set to air on the Home Box Office on July 16. But you don’t have to know what a White Walker is to enjoy the “Bend the Knee” brew, a golden ale that balances its bitter hops with a touch of wildflower honey, now on tap at the Welsh tavern.

Then hop over to the Owl’s Head (479 74th St. between Fourth and Fifth avenues) to sample the bar’s fresh spring brews, including Stillwater’s “Insetto,” an Italian plum sour ale, Evil Twin Brewing’s “James Beer,” with notes of strawberry and olive, and “Mango Pop!” from Grimm Artisanal Ales, which has a creamsicle-inspired flavor.

Come Sunday, clear your palate at the Fifth Avenue Street Festival (Fifth Avenue between Bay Ridge Avenue and 85th Street), which will feature plenty of local grub, crafts, fair rides, and live music. And if your liver can’t handle a day without booze, there are plenty of public houses along the route where you can knock back a cold one before continuing on your spring stroll.
