A few good spots to see tomorrow's AC Milan-Chelsea soccer game

Thanks again for all your suggestions yesterday. Here is a link to the piece I did in today's paper about the best places to watch the AC Milan-Chelsea game. I mentioned Slainte, James Joyce, Pickles Pub and more.

I spoke with a few bar owners, and just about every one said they're trying to get members of the teams to drop by their bars after the game. I wonder if it will happen.

thanks sammy. just made an audible "wow" on that last part. for those of us who want to meet the players, how can we find out where they are going?

sam, can you tweet it if you find out?

everyone else, if you see them out and about, why not send a tweet to the with the tag #footystars?

sound good?

Most likely place to find Italian soccer players tonight and tomorrow night? Little Italy. Tomorrow night is going to be sick in LI. Soccer fans, free movie night and the firemen's convention is in town. Those guys party like rock stars.

The Chelsea manager was walking around the harbor today.

Well, if Little Italy is the place for the Italian fans to congregate, the Baltimore City Detention Center seems like the most likely place for the English fans to gather.

Pratg Street Ale House is supposedly hosting the Chelsea FC supporters club........... did last night, too.......

AC Milan team chef and others at Rocco's Capriccio in LI last night. Weird combo of Lawn-guy-land fire fighters and Italians out on High & Fawn Stscorner around 10.
