Continue The Ravens Celebration This Week

Celebrate the playoff run with flock parties, pep rallies, and bus trips to New England.

The Ravens left Pittsburgh victorious and we, as football fans, have (at least!) another week to celebrate. Whether you’re sticking around here or heading up to New England, here is the skinny on all the ways to cheer on our boys in purple this week.

Flock Parties: Once again, the Ravens will be hosting various flock parties around town, complete with Ravens cheerleaders, the mascot Poe, and alumni players all in attendance. There will also be some opportunities to get your car stenciled and decorated with Ravens pride.

Purple Friday: Every Friday, area football fans don a certain shade of purple and this week will be no different, as 98 Rock and the Ravens host a Purple Friday Fuel Up from 6-10 a.m. at Hightopps Backstage Grille in Timonium. The party will feature a free breakfast, discounted beers, and visits from the cheerleaders, Poe, and the marching band.

That night, fans can also join the cheerleaders, alumni, and Poe for a Miller Lite Purple Friday Caravan, which will transport fans between Michael’s Cafe, Hightopps, and Pappas Restaurant to celebrate from 6:30-10 p.m.

Bus Trips: As the group always does, Bmore Around Town is hosting a divisional playoff trip to Gillette Stadium in Foxborough to cheer on the Ravens. Various packages (ranging from $50-595) include the bus trip up there, lodging in a downtown Boston hotel, a Purple Friday pep rally, a 3-hour open bar and food Purple Tailgate Party at the stadium before the game, and tickets to the Ravens-Patriots game. As of post time, seats are still available.

Additionally, radio station WNST presents bus trips up to New England for the Saturday afternoon game. The overnight trip ($375-500) will include motorcoach transportation, an upperdeck game ticket, snacks and drinks for the game-day day tailgate, and plenty of Ravens memorabilia to remember the trip by.

There will also be a bus trip hosted by B Scene Events & Promotions, which will leave Canton Waterfront Park on Friday, January 9 at 9 a.m. Various packages ($40-2,028) include breakfast from Towson Hot Bagels, drinks and lunch from Trinacria Italian Deli, overnight lodging at Hilton Back Bay, a private room party at Lir Irish Bar in Boston, a three-hour tailgate on Saturday, and an upper level ticket to the game.

Check back in with us later this week as we’ll post restaurant and bar recommendations for those heading up to New England, as well as bar specials here in Baltimore, and a game preview of how we think Saturday will go down. (Hint: We’re a little biased.)
