Where to watch Sunday's game

ravens fans at padonia stationSunday afternoon, the Ravens will take on the Patriots in a playoff smackdown.

I can watch regular season games in the comfort of my own home. When it's playoff time, I've got to get up, get out and go to a sports bar. Or any bar. I look for somepleace with good deals and a whole bunch of fellow Ravens fans. 

In today's paper, I did a big roundup of some of the best places to watch the game.

Check it out.

Luckie's Tavern in Power Plant Live is offering one of the best deals: One lucky fan will win a seat on a VIP couch in front of a 15-foot HD screen, along with free beer and wings during the game. Snap! ...

Padonia Station (pictured), which is the go-to spot for many Ravens fans up in the county, expects to tear through 1,600 pounds of buffalo wings. Think about that for a second. 1,600 pounds. 

And, of course, the roundup wouldn't be complete without the other side: Don't Know Tavern, a Patriots bar, is giving out free shots to any Pats fans when the Patriots score a touchdown.

Win or lose, I'm just glad we get to see the Ravens play again.

If you've got any other great game day specials that aren't in my list, bring 'em on!

Yeah, SNAP, go to a bar to watch the game alone! SNAP! "Hey guys look! I'm eating and drinking alone!" How are things over there?"

And I dont think a contest/prize is considered a deal.

I'll be watching in FOXBORO, baby!!! is offering a killer package and I'm choosing fun over health, fiscal responsibility and my job. The Ravens better not let me down, or it's going to be a long ride home... :) Can't wait.

Actually, the contest at Luckies is for one fan and four friends to win a VIP couch for the game. There will be a full bloody mary bar and the specials Sam mentioned. So far, table reservations are going quickly and it should be a great time. Also, Pier V garage offers $5 parking with a Luckies validation.

Sounds better Chris.

Luckies still sucks.

A full bloody mary bar?!?! sweeeeeeeeet, Wish more bars would do this!!!!

Brazen, it's guys/girls like yourself that make us want to do/be better. Sorry if you haven't had a good experience. Sam can give you my contact info as i'm always eager to hear people's thoughts on what we may be doing wrong or could be doing right. As for this Sunday, we'll be having a good time pulling for the Ravens.

Chris -

I like your attitude, but I'm a bit too old for the Power Plant. A wide variety of bars and restaurants is why I live in my neighborhood. I don't have to go downtown for it.

I'm just wondering how the closing of the Cantina has helped/hurt your business? I only go there for a show at Rams Head and then would get out quick.

Mex in Powerplant Live has $1 tacos and bucket of 7, 7oz hineys for $7.00. Plus 2 bigscreen TVs.

The management at FuL has elected to transport Baltimore's only HyperLounge to Foxboro by dirigible.

We have just completed installation of the glass floors so that only the most elite of FuL's clientel can see the game as the club itself is suspended above the stadium.

Enjoy the game from your "seats", Plebians.

Ted, i live in Canton and i'm right there with ya. Cantina's closing hasn't hurt us and we have several new venues that will be opening soon that are aimed at a more mature post-college clientele. Have fun watching the game wherever you land.

The best Ravens Bar(s0 in the area Looney's Pub ('s Bets Raven Bar) get there early though) should be wall to wall with Raven Lunatic's by 12 Canton, Bel Air or Maple Lawn and $2.50 Domestic btls to boot. Between the 3 over 300 hdtv's

Looneys in Canton is trashy. what if you want a place you will actually get a seat at and don't want to hang out with half of White Marsh?

I like Frank & Nick's on Pratt by the stadium. hell they even have TV's on the urinals so you don't miss a beat.

HEY! I like Looney's, Broham!

Kooper's Tavern! They have $2.50 Yellow Tail Ale during the Game and serve brunch from 9am till 2pm with $10 Bottomless Bloodies and Mimosas!
