Depends on what you desire and where you're staying.

Max's on Broadway (or simply Max's) is my personal favorite -- tons of craft / local beers, 25-30 HD TV', etc. it's in Fells Point.

Mother's in Federal Hill is popular but that's a better place to go before the game.

Where are you staying? Do you prefer low key or mad house?

Most bars in Baltimore double as pretty damn good restaurants so if you want excellent food to go with your bar experience, that narrows it down as well.

Here's my blog post for fans going to the game. They wear Purple, we wear Battle Red. Red is scientifically shown to be a winning color.

Also contains information on how to get the Arian Foster wristbands without ordering them online--They have a location easy to get to in the Galleria area.

HoustonRaven I have a question for you. On the Mighty Gwinnett show on 790AM here in town, the host Dylan Gwinn really ragged on your hometown saying its the skid mark of the US and the only things there are crab cakes and strip clubs. The host was born and raised in D.C.

I was just wondering if there was a Dallas-Houston type of rivalry where the people in each city hate the other town. Also, do Ravens fans dislike the Redskins like we dislike the Cowboys even though we rarely play them.

I was just wondering where you were. Are you coming out to the game??

I think you're the only one on here I've met in person so far.

Chaps is damn good!

But I am sorry to say it's nowhere near the Harbor. You'll need a rental (or a very expensive cab ride) in order to get one of their pit beef sammy's.

Yes and Yes.

People from the DC area do not like us folks from Baltimore. It's unfortunate that he has characterized Baltimore that way. I grew up in and around Baltimore and that's nothing close to the city I know.

IMO, it stems from sports mostly. Both cities are football towns, one city has fallen so far from grace, it's become a joke in NFL circles. The other is a well run organization that has a history of winning in their short life. Redskins fans have far more hostility than Ravens fans have towards them.

I'd say it is very much like the Dallas - Houston rivalry on many levels.

FYI, the Four Seasons has rooms just $20 more than the Hilton. Not often that I can afford to stay at a place that nice and I canceled my reservation at the Hilton and am now staying at the Four Seasons.

Not to offend anyone (HoustonRaven) with the comparison-I hope the Ravens fans are as cool as the Redskins fans.

I had a blast at the Skins game last year. Yes I took alot of good natured ribbing (which I fully expect coming into their house) but it was good.

I've been to Baltimore many times (not for a game though) and everyone was pretty cool, even when I was wearing my Texans stuff.

I went to the regular season matchup there and wore my Texans gear and got a couple ribs walking through the parking lots where the tailgaters were at, but nothing you would call a hostile enviroment. This IS higher stakes and expect to see more Blue/Red there than last time, but other then the occosianal beligerant fan, shouldnt have much to worry about.

I was just wondering if there was a Dallas-Houston type of rivalry where the people in each city hate the other town. Also, do Ravens fans dislike the Redskins like we dislike the Cowboys even though we rarely play them.
Redskins fans give a crap more about Ravens fans than vica versa. It's kinda silly. Two different conferences, two different divisions. The Ravens were born out of territorialism (Jack Kent Cooke convinced Tagliabue not to allow an expansion team in Baltimore by famously saying, "I'd rather see a team in Mexico City than in Baltimore"). Since the 96 inaugural season, though, the Ravens franchise has been nothing but a model for a winning mentality (even when we weren't winning). The Redskins don't have that same culture. So a lot of animosity is directed towards the Ravens because they have nothing better to do than hate other teams. The Ravens just stay focused on winning.

Funny story... Back in, like 2009, the Redskins came to Baltimore during the regular season... a rare matchup, and the first regular season matchup in Baltimore, IIRC. I had a tradition, living in DC, that I would go watch the game in Baltimore during away games (avoid parking hassles) and stay back in DC for home games. I couldn't watch this game in DC though, so I went to Baltimore.

I was at the Ravens fan flagship bar, Mothers in Fed Hill, and a bunch of Skins fans parted the packed crowd, got in a big circle and started singing Hail to the Redskins at the top of their lungs. Ultimate disrespect for the home team to do that in our bar. A few Ravens fans (and Skins fans) ended up getting tossed for a tussle that ensued. That's the only time I've seen any real rivalry from both sides... it's almost always Redskins fans towards Ravens fans.

As for your sports reporter, I'd remind him that when he lived in DC, DC was a hell-hole itself. Both cities have improved. Baltimore has a nice up and coming arts, music and entreprenurial scene. DC has a nice up and coming cloak-and-dagger election scene, a fading music scene and a public transportation system that is so mechanically and financially destitute that people are literally dying.
