    Re: Log your Ravens trip here!



    GraniteRaven---New members are always welcome! You have no worries in reference to tailgating. I have a large group that will be there late afternoon and you are welcome to attend. Beer and food will be there and maybe that infamous ice luge. Sitting in a bar is for afterwards. Tailgating is the way to go beforehand for the true "experience". Greg and Mister T are a short walk from where I tailgate unless they move this year.
    Dave--No phone number, Mrs Toe is just 2 miles away from the pub.

    Re: Log your Ravens trip here!

    GraniteRaven- I'd definitely recommend meeting up with Toe and his mates for some good old fashioned tailgating action. Went over for a couple of game last season and couldn't have been made more welcome and had a great time both before and during the games.

    Still hoping to make it over this season (I still need to do an ice luge, even if I did manage to squeeze in a beer bong on Thanksgiving!) but currently looking into buying a flat/apartment and something might have to give!
    I told everyone that if I went to Pittsburgh I would have to throw up on my jersey every time I played, - Double J will always be a Raven

    Cheers for the replies guys and thanks Toeman for the invite Do we need to bring anything beer etc? (A complete tailgating newbie)

    Still can't believe it's happening tbh. just worked out than in 11 weeks I will have seen my first Ravens game (hopefully with a win)

    How is Baltimore as a city? I guess you can read all day about the good and bad things about a place so it's probably better to ask someone who knows i suppose. We are staying in the Mt Vernon area of the city, which i have heard is quite nice.

    If you are good with domestic canned beer, there will be plenty. Someone from the group will volunteer and put out the spread of food for the tailgate. I just need to put you in the count a week before the Browns game. You will just need to show up in Purple and look for me. I will be wearing purple also.
    OR
    You can just look for this guy---

    Nice one Mrs Granite and I are at the Baseball on the friday as well. Neither one of us knows the first thing about it but worth heading along to tick it off the list. Are you guys in a hotel in MV? We used a site called Airbnb to get accom. Its pretty much folk renting out there houses, it's something a little different from hotels i suppose. Got a great deal for NY with that site.
    Just had a look at the Baltimore classic tickets but the look on the mrs face when i mentioned it means that wont be happening Can't complain with the football and baseball in 3 days being in Baltimore.

    Baseball is some craic, bring your drinking boots! Staying the the Mount Vernon Hotel, cheap & cheerful and within walking distance of Inner Harbor, can't ask for more (think there's an Irish bar around the corner from it as well)

    Preseason Hockey is pretty poor, so probably not missing much,, saying that, might be different atmosphere as Baltimore only gets the one game a year, here's hoping!

    Re: Log your Ravens trip here!

    Stayed in the Mount Vernon hotel myself two years ago. Decent enough hotel, thought it was great value for money at the price we got it at the time. If my memory serves me correctly it's about 15minutes walk from the inner harbour. But there's also a light rail stop 2 mins from the hotel which we used at night.

    Re: Log your Ravens trip here!

    Ok guys, I'm planning to have my leave sometime during the season, but I really don't know wHere to start. Where do I buy tickets? How much would a ticket cost for decent seats? What is the best area/hotel to stay in, also what are the best areas to go for a few bevvies after the game? Nothing is certain right now, I'm just speculating about this with a few mates. A trip to Maryland to watch the Ravens would be awesome! Taking into account this would be my first visit to Baltimore, so I don't know the area too well, spent too much time in Florida!

    Any info would be appreciated!

    Just to give you lads an alternative, if you stay at the hotels in Harbor East (Marriott Courtyard, Hilton Garden Inn, etc), you get a better feel of Baltimore and its neighborhoods, particularly Fells Point and Little Italy.

    Those hotels are still a short walk to the harbor and blocks from Fells Point. The Inner Harbor is decent enough but if you desire to hang with the locals, consider the places I mentioned.

    Excellent, thanks.. looks decent enough & at less than €60 a night per room can't really go too wrong!
