Lakeside Bar & Grill will celebrate its 14th anniversary with what it calls a “Lakesiders Only” birthday bash on Saturday, May 14.

From 11 a.m. to midnight, guests are encouraged to dress in beach-themed outfits.

According to a statement, the name of the party is an ode to the neighborhood and community that have supported Lakeside Bar & Grill. It is also an inside joke because the restaurant is nowhere near a lake. The name derives from the fact that it was one of the few options on the way to Lake Pleasant Parkway.

On May 14, the specials will include:

• All-day happy hour, including $6 glasses of select wine; $4.50 well cocktails, beer specials; and $1.50 off shareables, excluding bone-in wings.

• A specialty drinks menu.

Guests can also participate in a hula-hoop contest for free Lakeside gift cards. The Crown Kings will perform from 8 p.m. to midnight.

The sports bar touts wall-to-wall televisions, a family-friendly atmosphere, daily happy hour from 3 to 7 p.m., and weekday lunch specials.

Customer favorites are the two dog-friendly patios and live music on Saturdays. During NFL season, Lakeside offers Sunday breakfast, all-day happy hour and games via NFL Sunday Ticket.
