Coming to town for O's games Friday/Saturday.

A friend and I (both males, 23) are visiting Baltimore for the first time this weekend. I'm looking for recommendations on what to do before and after the Saturday game (4:05 start). We're staying at Marriott Inner Harbor/Camden Yards. What restaurants/bars should we make it a point to visit to get the Baltimore experience? Is the Sports Legends Museum worth visiting? Thanks!

Pickles Pub for pre-gaming...Faidley's in Lexington Market if you're adventurous, for crabcakes. They close at 6 p.m.

Afterward, head over to Federal Hill for plenty of bars. Fells Point, too.

We will be at the game as well and are planning to eat lunch in Fells Point then do Pickles before the game.

Sports Legend is very cool - among other things it's the Oriole's version of Cooperstown. You can get a combined ticket to also see the Babe Ruth House which is very cool (walking distance to OPACY).

Pickles is a good stop. Also Cross Street Market for happy hour, crab cakes aren't quite as good as Faidleys, but in a better part of town, and lots of variety with sushi, oysters, big beers and surrounded by bars.

Hey hey, I'll be at that game too. Folks usually stop off at Pickles/Sliders before the game for cheap pre-game beers. $3 at Pickles/Sliders vs. $8 in the Yard. Sports Legends is cool if ya wanna learn about Baltimore sports history. Fells Point is more favored for bar scene but is a bit further from the Yard than Fed Hill. Both are great drinking destinations though.

If you guys wanna wild out in the tourist bar corral you can mosey on over to Power Plant Live after the game. It's about 8 blocks down Pratt St on the other side of the Inner Harbor. Free to get into the complex but there's a cover for nearly every bar after 8pm. It gets pricey but you might dig it if you want an all-in-one.

I agree with those suggesting Cross Street/Federal Hill postgame. The dynamite sushi roll at Nick's in Cross Street Market (spicy tuna/jalapeno) is tough to beat and the atmosphere is very Balto and bar hopping around Federal Hill should be fun. Pickles is good for beer and the pregame atmosphere but I wouldn't eat there unless you are doing the grilled burgers etc outside....maybe Nick's West End Grill next door or Alewife for lunch beforehand if you want to eat then go to Pickles. Avoid the Diamond Tavern (Hilton) across the street from Camden Yard's main entrance even though it might look tempting to sit outside and take it all in (brutal service and food).
