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.

“Last year was such a success,  think there would be riots if we didn’t do it again,” 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, and 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 is ready for summer with new hours 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
