Have a great pair of Sunglasses, wear plenty of sunscreen, and if you have a really comfortable , non-cotton, loose fitting long sleeve shirt to keep the sun off...wear it!

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.

Indeed it is. https://vaccarospastry.com/

 

Agree on the Scupper.  It had that tourist trap reputation even when I lived there.

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.

That Flutie game was something.  Had to remove the Bills cap to safely exit the stadium.

!Information Overload Alert!

I live in Baltimore, more specifically Greek Town. Moved from Rochester 4 years ago. Here is some advice for out of Town Bills fans coming to Baltimore:

There are several bars to check out that are Buffalo bars. One is Myth and Moonshine (Bills Backer Bar for my club "Charm City Backers") which is located in Canton. Then a small bar called "No Idea" in Federal hill (not to be confused with the bar "don't know" right down the street) which rocks a Sabres and Bills flag out front. You can buy Genny Cream Ale there. The Charm City Bills Backers are throwing a party at a bar called Delia Foley's located in Federal Hill Saturday NIGHT. You will need to buy a ticket which is linked to Charm City Bills Backer Facebook page if you want to go. They supposedly have the best wings in Baltimore, so i'm sure the Buffalonians will be giving them quite the taste test. 

 

Inner Harbor is nice but it is so far off from what Baltimore is. You must try and venture out into Fells point, Canton Square, and Federal Hill to get a good feel for Baltimore.  All three neighborhoods surround the Chesapeake and provide ample food, booze, and music. Federal hill is a younger crowd where the college students usually live, a lot of fun. Fells point is historical with a lot of live music and good food (Check out "the horse you came in on saloon" before the line gets too long.") Canton is basically the neighborhood people move to when you're not in college anymore. Check out Mama's on the Half Shell for awesome Oysters and Seafood.

 

This really is a great city, and my best advice would be to venture away from Inner Harbor. Download the Lyft and Uber apps to easily get you around the city. Use Yelp to find a restaurant with awesome crab cakes (not named rusty scupper), drink a natty boh, and remember Old Bay is on everything down here, even in a shaker on your restaurant table. GO BILLS!

I'm glad you liked it. Water Taxi can be fun if you've never done it. However, it's only worth the price and time if you take it a lot. Just my opinion though.

Cool to take if you want to see a bit of the harbor going between Fells Point and Fed Hill. Really expensive if you are a party of two or more compared to ride share
