    A few questions from a Texan



    Section 539 row 25 how's the view?
    We're coming in Saturday morning, what's cool to do in Baltimore? Is there a warf area with bars and restaurants? Where should we get crab cakes?

    Thanks

    Stay away from Harbor Place...too touristy. Go to Federal Hill, Canton, Fells Point, Little Italy for good bars and restaurants.

    Best crab cakes: G&M. In the 'burbs about 15 mins south of town.

    Baltimoreravens.com has an option to view the field from your section. I'd suggest you bring binoculars

    Harbor Place within walking distance to M&T Bank Stadium (aka The Vault) is loaded w/ good bars & restaurants. Phillips is well known well established seafood restaurant. Not far from Little Italy with lots & lots of good eats. Just use common sense about where you walk ... certain directions take you to the hood. Closest attractions to M&T are Fort McHenry, home of National Anthem, the Aquarium, and a nice train museum. If weather is nice can take a harbor cruise.

    Seats will have a good view but you're in an end zone.

    Not sure where your staying but there are a lot of bars around the harbor area. Goggle Baltimore Harbor. There are a lot of bars to choose from and you're a short walk to the stadium. I like the Pratt Street Ale House or Pickles for day game drinking and eating. I'd recommend walking down Eutaw Street, through Oriole Park on you way to the stadium. Your rolling the dice with crab cakes because they are out of season.

    I agree with this post but if you're coming in town on sunday and the game is 1 pm I assumed they would want to stay fairly close to Stadium.

    +1 on going to Fells Point!

    It's my old hood and had lots of great eats and friendly bars. Stay away from Harborplace -- pricey and touristy.

    Did you make hotel arrangements? The wife and I found great rates at the Hilton Garden Inn on Presidents St.

    As for your seats, bring an oxygen tank!

    That's my section. Great view because you're right in the middle of the end-zone behind the goalposts. But you're way up there... there are only 26 rows in the section. I'm way down in row 11 which is nice because it's about the same level as the first row of the upper end-zone. Def bring the binoculars if you're in row 25.

    Have not got a hotel yet. Do you think the upper deck at m&t is comparable to the upper deck at Reliant? Man that sucks its not the right time of year for crab cakes.

    Reliant is taller, if that makes sense, and it feels as if you're closer to the field than at M&T. M&T is wider in the uppers, thus gives a feeling you're further away.

    Go to Thames Street Oyster House for a good crab cake. One of the few places down town that gets good seasonal lump crab meat.

    It's always the right time of year for crabcakes.

    Now sitting down to crack and eat steamed crabs is a different story although they can still be had this time of year as well.

    You vcan get quality crabcakes any time of year from any restaurant that prepares and sells quality crabcakes.

    Forget Baltimore, take Russell St. out of town to MD 295 to I-295 near DC. Exit on PA avenue and head east. Go 3 blocks and park. Get out of your vehicle, wave some cash and tell the folks around you you are looking for something good to eat.

    ^just kidding.

    Fells Point is where you want to head. Though near Harbor you can find a comedy club and touristy bars if you are into that kind of thing.

    Somebody mentioned Phillips upstread, I believe they are closed, they are moving to the old ESPN Zone nearby and aren't open yet (I believe, could be wrong on if they are open yet).

    If you rent a car G&Ms is a good place for crab cakes. As Fanatic says, crab cakes around here are plentiful year round. And they are real crab cakes, not that crap they pass off in other areas that are barely thicker than an envelope and less tasty.

    Get on the stair machine now - no escalators to the upper deck.

    have a good trip in and enjoy the game. it should be a tremendously competitive match and a good time. Be prepared for a loud stadium as our fans will be rabid. The Texans are a good team and I expect the home crowd will be the difference.
