Twitter has been abuzz today with a story The Sun broke about the Harbor's Tiki Barge. The outdoor pool/bar may be in jeopardy, as residents of neighboring HarborView and Ritz Carlton condos are appealing to the city's liquor board today to revoke the bar's license due to its clientele's alleged disruptive behavior.

Residents are complaining about multiple incidents, including noise, public urination, and a stolen golf cart. Other grievances include illegal parking, trampling over flowerbeds, and, most curiously, one patron's "simulated sex with a potted palm tree." More than 40 residents of the million-dollar condos banded together to file the complaint.

On the flipside, the bar's supporters have also come together, some 800 of them, to sign an online petition, which states that the bar has been a "true oasis in the middle of Baltimore where people can experience the uniqueness of the Inner Harbor and enjoy the atmosphere that has been created there."

As the warmer months approach, there could be a lot of unhappy South Baltimore residents looking forward to sunbathing and drinking poolside at one the city's most unique summer spots. For live updates of the liquor board hearing, see @midnightsunblog.
