Get ready for a sugar-fueled Easter weekend in Bay Ridge!

Kick off your weekend with a visit to the Coop (9504 Fourth Ave. at 95th Street) coffee shop on Friday night to check out the exhibit “We Live in Bay Ridge,” featuring the work of local artists who have painted the neighborhood’s brownstones, historic buildings, and — of course — its beloved bridge. The cafe closes at 7 pm on Friday, but the show will continue all weekend.

On Saturday, your kids can get an early start on their Easter-fueled sugar high by hippety-hopping to Shore Road Park (79th Street and Shore Road) for a free Easter Egg Hunt kicking off at 2 pm. The event, which is sponsored by Sen. Marty Golden, will also feature arts and crafts, music, and activities to distract the little ones from the jelly beans and chocolate rabbits.

Later that night, get in some adult activities by rocking out at the Wicked Monk (9510 Third Ave. between 95th and 96th streets), where you can hear the eclectic party band Screaming Broccoli cover hits by Guns ’n’ Roses, the Beatles, the Killers, and more. The set blasts off at 10 pm, and the cover will be $5, so you can afford some of the night’s shot specials.

On Sunday, roll over to John J. Carty Park (95th Street and Fort Hamilton Parkway) for another Easter celebration starting at 1 pm. The free two-hour event from United City Church will feature family photo shoots with the Easter Bunny, eggs hunts, and refreshments.

Once you have worked up an appetite hunting down those eggs, head to the Greenhouse Café (7717 Third Ave. between 77th and 78th streets) for its three-course Easter dinner, featuring a flame-roasted rack of lamb with mint jelly — among other options — from noon until 7 pm. The meal will set adults back $45, and the kids’ menu — featuring chicken parm or chicken nuggets and fries — rings in at $21. Call (718) 833–8200 for reservations.
