A free flick, tons of music, and a party in the park await you in Bay Ridge this week!
On Friday, swoop into Narrows Botanical Garden (Shore Road and 70th Street) for a screening of Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Birds” at 8:30 pm. Tippi Hedren and Rod Taylor star in the surreal classic in which all hell breaks loose and birds attack the residents of a small California town. Don’t forget a blanket and snacks, but maybe skip the bird feed.
Come Saturday, soar over to the Brooklyn Firefly (7003 Third Ave. at Ovington Avenue) for cocktails and an open-mic jam session hosted by Herbert “Bert” Jantsch, serenading the jazzy pizza joint starting at 8 pm.
Then on Sunday you can join the 11th Annual Bay Ridge Arab American Bazaar and Eid Celebration at Shore Road Park (Shore Road and 79th Street) from noon to 7 pm. The family-friendly fun day will be packed with musical performances and food from across the Arab world, along with henna artists and a myriad of vendors hawking crafts, clothes, and jewelry.
After breaking bread with your neighbors, reward yourself with even more live music and booze at the Wicked Monk (9510 Third Ave. between 95th and 96th streets). Brooklyn rockers Whippoorwill will bring the house down with classic riffs starting at 5 pm.
You can keep the party going on Monday at No Quarter Tavern (8015 Fifth Ave. between 80th and 81st streets) with the brutal Quartet of Catastrophe. Known for their screaming guitar riffs and raspy vocals, the metalheads will start head banging at 10 pm.
Finally, take advantage of Tuesday’s balmy weather with an outdoor concert at Shore Road Park’s Concerts in the Park (Shore Road and 79th). Classic rock ‘n’ rollers the Groove take the stage at 7 pm. Bring your dancing shoes if you want to get down, or a blanket if you want to lie down and soak up the beats.
