For the second time in three years, the Buffalo Bills open against the Baltimore Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium in downtown Baltimore. Bills fans are known to travel well though, and it appears the local Bills Backers group is looking to make any fans coming in for the game feel right at home.
The Charm City Bills Backers—as they are called—are hosting “Baltimore Takeover” events Saturday night starting at 6:00 PM at three bars in the city’s hip, historic neighborhood, Fells Point. Sir Duke, The Rockwell, and Admiral’s Cup (the group’s home base) will all feature live music and giveaways courtesy of Labatt Blue. All three are within walking distance of one another, so a bar crawl would seem appropriate.
Then, on game day, the group is hosting a tailgate party starting at 9:30 AM at 1300 Russell Street outside the stadium, catered by Jimmy’s Famous Seafood. The Facebook event page states that certain Bills Alumni will be in attendance. Unfortunately, tickets to the tailgate are now listed as being sold out.
Alright #BillsMafia, how great are the Charm City #Bills Backers shirts this year? For those going to the CCBB Jimmy’s Famous Seafood Tailgate, Jared will be selling them! @JoshAllenQB @buffalobills @TheBillsMafia pic.twitter.com/e4r4agSo2L— Steve Zaczyk (@SteveZaczyk) September 4, 2018
Just spoke to our ticket distributor who said he’s sold 1000 tickets for #BUFvsBAL to @buffalobills fans, incl 250 to my DC Bills Backers. (And that doesn’t count the Charm City Backers either!) This Sunday’s gonna be fun... right @NatePeterman??? #BillsMafia pic.twitter.com/bxjiYrOv07— Gregory (@elnok) September 4, 2018
Tailgating fans will have the start of Petermania to look forward to, as those attending the game will be lucky enough to witness Nathan Peterman’s first start of the 2018 season.
