I’m always looking for good places to watch the Ravens game at, not because I’ll actually be able to go, but because I want everyone else to know where the best football watering holes are. I’ve tried out a few, but there are so many bars in Baltimore and so little time before kickoff starts.
So here’s the deal. From now until September 4, 2008, I’ll be holding a monthly contest for you to write in about the best bars in the Baltimore area to watch a Baltimore Ravens game. It can be based on the atmosphere, food, drinks, or anything that makes the Ravens fan experience unique. Every Friday, I will feature the best submissions of the week, and on the final Saturday in the month, a fan poll will determine the best submission for the month.
The monthly grand prize will be a 24-pack of the beer of your choice. (Or the cash equivalent) The grand prize will be a staff writer position with EbonyBird.com, another 24-pack of brew, (or the cash equivalent) and a $50 gift certificate to the restaurant of your choice located in Baltimore’s luxurious Inner Harbor. And if we’re lucky, the bar that is crowned Baltimore’s Best Ravens Bar will name a stool after you.
The contest begins today, and all submissions for this week’s drawing are due by midnight tonight. The winner will be posted tomorrow evening after 6:00 p.m., so keep checking to see if you are a winner.
Submissions should not exceed 250 words, and must not contain any offensive or profane language. A tip is to be as funny or insightful as possible, and it helps if you are good with grammar and punctuation. Entries should be submitted to [email protected], or via the EbonyBird fan forums, which is located in the navigation bar just above this post.
