One of the biggest football games of the year is being played in our backyard this weekend.
The rivalry between Army and Navy on the football field goes back more than 100 years. The first game was played on the fields of West Point in 1890.
Today, they play on more neutral fields, mostly in Philadelphia. This year's game is happening at M&T Bank stadium in Baltimore, which some would argue is more of a "home team" advantage to Navy.
I'm not interested so much as to who has the advantage, or the stats, the past scores, the players (but my colleague Shawn Stepner is, see his preview of the game here). I want to know where is a good place to go in Navy Land, aka Annapolis, to watch the game.
Since I'm not all too familiar with the restaurant scene in Annapolis (I'm trying to fix that!) I had to ask some of my Naptown friends where to go. Here are their recommendations:
- Iron Rooster (they're making a special Navy pop tart!)
- Davis' Pub
- Dock Street
- Stan and Joe's Saloon
- Acme Bar and Grill
- Union Jacks
- Chesapeake Brewing Co.
- Fado Irish Pub
- Greene Turtle Annapolis
- McGarvey's Saloon and Oyster Bar
- West End Grill
A nice variety of bars, restaurants and breweries to choose from on game day. Thanks to all who gave us recommendations!
