Baltimore was the site of TailgateJoe’s first away game tailgate, and we really couldn’t ask for a better way to kick off our road trips. Baltimore has some great nightlife, great food, and great sports fans. The Ravens fans were courteous and gracious for he most part, outside of a handful of mostly female fans. The one thing I have noticed in my years traveling to other stadiums is that it is usually a female fan who is be big mouth, go figure.
Anywho, Chef Sal and I arrived early Saturday evening, and hit up Chap’s Pit Beef for dinner. Pit beef is a big thing in Baltimore, and Chaps is the best. They were even featured on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives, although the fact that Chaps is in front of maybe the most ghetto strip club in Baltimore was not mentioned in the show. The beef was delicious, and the people watching at 12am was a nice bonus as one cracked out stripper after another walked in and was bathed in the lovely fluorescent lighting. YIKES!! After dinner we headed down near the Inner Harbor, and wondered around some of the bars and clubs in the Power Plant Live nightlife complex.
The next morning we ran some last minute errands then headed over to the parking lot to set up for the tailgate party. This was a decent turnout, as we had 40 Jets fans show up to rally together and enjoy some great food and watch the Yankees playoff on our HD Directv setup. Unfortunately this is where the fun really ended, as we then went into the game and watched a trainwreck as the Jets just couldn’t get it done on the field.
Anyway, here’s a few pics from the day….
