Lakeside Marina offers fun for all this season

News to Know
by Kelly Caldwell

Lake season is gearing up to be a fun one and Lakeside Marina is doing its part.
Beginning Memorial Day weekend, the restaurant will offer Friday Night Bingo on the back deck of the restaurant.

“We have been playing bingo on Mondays for a while now with our senior groups and they love it,” John Tinney, Lakeside owner said. “I had one of our players tell me it wasn’t entertainment for them it was therapy.”

The concept will be a simple one. There will be 15 games played on Friday and each winner will receive a prize from a local business.

“We have already gotten several area businesses on board and are excited about Lakeside Friday Nights,” Tinney said.  “It’s a great opportunity to promote local business.”
Bingo will be open to all ages on Friday nights.

“We are a family friendly restaurant and bingo will be a great way for the family to spend a Friday night,” Tinney said.

Lakeside has also spent the offseason expanding the dining area of the restaurant.
“It gets very crowded in here during lake season, there are times that it’s standing room only,” Marie Bailey, store manager, said. “So Mr. Tinney decided the best option was to expand the dining area to allow for more seating.”

The store will change to its summer hours in a few weeks which will be 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
There are also other entertainment ideas in the works for Lakeside and a schedule will be released in the next issue of Lake Wedowee Life.
