Re: baltimore game
Tailgate lots open 5 hours before game time. I would take a taxi to Red Lot 6 across from PNC Park (Taxi driver will know) at 11am. Go under the overpass where the first tailgaters congregate and start drinking early. Introduce yourself and you'll be given all the beer and food you can handle. Take a little something if you feel weird about that. But everyone there will be really cool. After the game, taxi will be near impossible so I would go to Bettis' or any one of those bars and wait until the crowd in the streets clear out a little. you might be able to get a taxi an hour or two after the game. Or the Hilton might offer a shuttle. If you have to walk it, be ready for it to be cccccooooollldd going across the bridge.
