Mark your calendars. The Tiki Barge has set April 13 as its opening date for the season.
Tiki's manager Bud Craven confirmed the news Thursday. Craven is still nursing his wounds from a March Liquor Board hearing that denied his plans to build a seafood restaurant and raw bar barge right next to the existing Tiki.
At the time, the board concluded that the foot traffic to the combined barges would be too heavy for Harborview Marina.
When the old Tiki Barge re-opens next Friday, it'll be back to what fans have gotten accustomed to for the past two years, Craven said.
