The liquor board Thursday suspended Tiki Barge's license for the month of July — peak season for the floating South Baltimore bar — for disturbing the peace and misleading statements from the bar's lawyer, according to liquor board chairman Stephan Fogleman. Since Tiki Barge shares a liquor license with Sorso Cafe and the restaurant Tabrizi's, all three businesses will not be able to serve alcohol for 30 days, pending an appeal. "When one goes, they're all affected," Fogleman said.

The Tiki Barge , the legally waterlogged Inner Harbor party barge, will stay afloat in July after all. The liquor board Thursday "formally reconsidered" its April 28 decision that would have suspended its liquor license for the month of July. The Tiki Barge has paid a $3,000 fine in lieu of a 14-day suspension under an agreement between the owners and some of its neighbors. The board had suspended its liquor license after saying patrons disturbed the peace and the bar's counsel gave misleading statements.
