If you like seafood, try the Rusty Scupper. It's pricey but very good.

Driving up Friday from Charlotte and staying at an AIrBNB in Federal Hill. Walking distance to the stadium. Or, if we lose, stumbling distance from a bar.

We'll be in section 545, by the way.  My wife and I in Bills garb, the couple we're traveling with in Ravens gear.  The four of us have been to four of the last five Bills-Ravens tilts -- the only one we missed was the OT game in Baltimore.  So far the home team has won each time; hoping to break that streak this year.

I am so old been to every Bills-Ravens game ever played in BMore. Favorite one was the Flutie scramble for 23 on 4th and 22...Jonathan Linton on the receiving end of the winning TD at end of that drive  if I remember correctly.

 

Will not be there till Sunday..

 

For all you folks getting in early. Grab yourself a crabcake at Faidley's at Lexington Market for lunch http://www.faidleyscrabcakes.com/. Well worth the $13. Dont worry bout the open air drug deals going on outside, Stringer is dead. But seriously, best crab cake you will ever have. Nothing fancy, you order and eat standing up..but awesome

 

Then head over to Cross Street market in Federal Hill for a quick 36 Oz Natty Bo and some great great oysters either in the market itself or in the dozens of restauarants in and around the market while you watch college football. Pooj, you would love that area. Love when the marketing line is "inexpensive beer and fresh seafood" http://www.southbalt...p/crossmkt.html

 

I am not a huge Fells point guy, but for beer lovers this place is pretty cool http://www.maxs.com/

 

If you go to Fells Point, spring for the water taxi...good way to get around the main attarctions around the inner harbor...little longer, but nice on the water.

I won't be attending, but I can say from past experience that the Fells Point area has good restaurants and bars, and is only a few blocks from the inner harbor area and all that has to offer.

Stay outta the diner.



Maryland live Casino and the Horseshoe downtown are solid, Jimmy's famous seafood has great crabcakes and drink specials, I'm debating if I can sneak up there last minute or not.

Anyone have extra tkts to sell lmk.

I believe so PTR, but i have not been there in at least 10 years..maybe longer.

 

BTW, for people who looking for nicer/differant dining place

Not to a snob, but i will. Someone mentioned the Rusty Scupper...not for me. Tourist of all all tourist destinations. Have a great location right on the inner harbor, and no outside seating, not even for a drink. And the food is mediocre at best. For that matter, pretty much avoid all the restaurants directly on the Inner Harbor near the Aquarium and other attractions. All tourist dreck, much better options all around.
