Game Day Guide: Ravens Fans, Welcome to Philly!
This Sunday, the high-powered defense of the Baltimore Ravens look to take on the explosive Philadelphia Eagles in what is set to be a Battle of the Birds! Kickoff is set for 1:00 p.m. (Eastern Time) as the all-pro veterans Ray Lewis and Ed Reed look to stop the multi-talented Mike Vick and the rest of the Eagles offense.
Lincoln Financial Field
Situated on the South-side, the ‘Linc’ is one of the four Sports Complexes that is home to the professional teams of Philadelphia. With many of the Ravens enthusiasts expected to make the two hour drive to a fanatic atmosphere, there are several of options to choose from this weekend that would make your trip worthwhile.
Here is what we would suggest for your pre, post, and game day entertainment in the City of Brotherly Love.
Check-in to Philadelphia and grab a bar stool
Whether you are arriving Friday or Saturday night, we are sure you are anxious to get off the road and kick off your weekend on the right foot. For those looking for a casual spot to take it easy before the big game, check out the neighborhood bars in the area and kick back and relax. Otherwise, for those looking to kick it in gear and explore the nightlife Philly has to offer, hit up a club and dance like nobody is watching.
“May your glass be ever full”
Did you know this weekend is the half-way to St. Paddy’s day milestone celebration? Well, let us point you in the right direction and find a local Philadelphia pub in your area to rejoice; you can’t go wrong with fancying a few.
Wake up snoozer’s, it’s football day!
Kickoff is set for 1:00, so you better be up and ready to make your way over to the stadium. Take a cab or park your car in the lot, and head over to the newest addition of the Sports Complex, XFINITY LVE! Just blocks away from the Linc, XFINITY LIVE! is the central gathering place for groups before and after the big game. With its opening last March, this compound consists of five bars to choose from to grab a drink and eat a meal, an expanded outdoor area for the ultimate hangout, and a 24-foot wide video board to complete all of your pre-game coverage. Trust us, you will not want to miss out on this home-opening pre-game party.
Post game continuation
By the time the game is over, you’ll have plenty of time to get back to your hometown. Keep up with your fantasy players and head over to a local sports bar closest to the stadium and watch the rest of the NFL games. Better yet, swing by your hotel room and switch over to your Orioles jersey and root for hometown team again as they make their push for the playoffs at 4:05 p.m. There is no such thing as having “too much” sports entertainment in one day.
