Winter weather is here, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a hot night in Bay Ridge!

There are tunes, theater, trivia, and more waiting for you on Friday, Saturday, and beyond in the Ridge.

This weekend you’ve got four chances to go see a Tony Award-winning musical without leaving the 11209. Jeff Samaha Theater is putting on “Parade” at the High School of Telecommunication Arts and Technology (350 67th St. between 67th and Senator streets). The production dramatizes the trial and lynching of a Brooklyn man framed for raping and killing a teenager in Atlanta. Heavy stuff, but it sounds like Samaha and crew are going to put on a really good show. Check showtimes at Tickets are $22–$26.

And there is plenty to do when you are not soaking up high art.

On Friday, traipse or trapeze over to Schnitzel Haus (7319 Fifth Ave. between 73rd and 74th streets) to catch throw-back classic rockers Bonzo’s Flying Circus. Zeppelin drummer John “Bonzo” Bonham may be long dead (rock gods rest his booze-addled soul), but these guys are keeping his spirit alive starting at 11 pm.

Then on Saturday, relive the glory days of the ’90s at the Wicked Monk (9510 Third Ave. between 95th and 96th streets), where Wild Hearted Son will kick out hard-rocking jams from the likes of Danzig, Alice in Chains, and Toadies starting at 11 pm.

And on Wednesday, show everyone how much of a brainiac (okay, nerd) you are during trivia night at the Harp (7710 Third Ave. between 77th and 78th streets). Things get quizzical at 8 pm.

Reach reporter Max Jaeger at or by calling (718) 260–8303. Follow him on Twitter @MJaeger88.
