Bay Ridge is all about the ladies this weekend!

On Friday night, stomp over to the Bookmark Shoppe (8415 Third Ave. between 84th and 85th streets), where author Tori Telfer will discuss the deadly dames featured in her new book, “Lady Killers: Deadly Women Throughout History” at 7 pm. The tome, based on her former columns for feminist news sites Jezebel and the Hairpin, explores the crimes and media portrayals of 14 little-known female killers — truly an area where women have been underrepresented. Entry to the 90-minute event requires buying a copy of her $15.99 book.

As a Friday night alternative, you could watch some free flicks at Owl’s Head Park (68th Street and Colonial Road). Four short films — each between five and 20 minutes long — chosen by the Art of Brooklyn Film Festival will screen starting at 8 pm, including a highlight reel of comedy videos from Bay Ridgites Brian Bonz and Mike Rizzo.

On Saturday, pedal your way to art and alcohol with the Harbor Ring Torch Tour of Bay Ridge Art Spaces, hosted by Transportation Alternatives. The free, three-hour bike tour starts at 1 pm at the Arab American Association of New York (7111 Fifth Ave. between Ovington Avenue and 72nd Street), where a pair of artists will show their work. The trip will continue to nearby PrintSpace, Stand4 Gallery, and the Owl’s Head before cruising to other end of the Ridge and ending at Lock Yard (9221 Fifth Ave. between 92nd and 94th streets), where you can quench your thirst with a pint.

And on Sunday, treat Mom to a cooking-free day with a Mother’s Day lunch at Greenhouse Café (7717 Third Ave. between 77th and 78th streets): the $44.95 adult menu of an appetizer, entrée, and dessert — including options of broiled salmon, chicken francaise, and shell steak — will fill you up enough that you won’t have to eat again all day. Call (718) 833–8200 for reservations any time between noon and 8 pm.
