This was going to be a laid back, relaxing weekend for me, with no plans on the horizon, until Steve called Friday afternoon saying he'd been given 2 tickets, by his company, for the Orioles game on Saturday. That sounded awesome on its own but also, food, beer and a hotel room were included. Fabulous!
So, taking an overnight bag and my G15, we drove to Baltimore. Free parking was also included with the hotel so all we had to pay for was food and drink outside the event. After leaving our bags at reception we walked to the inner harbor and ordered a small lunch at the M&S Grill.
Once we'd dumped our bags unceremoniously and had a quick look round the hotel, we trotted off to the park, which was only a couple of blocks away.
We didn't have to wait long to get inside and because we were part of a party, we were allowed in through a different door. The first 25k fans were presented with a free bobblehead.

Thankfully, not a fatality, and thankfully not near us... And the Orioles added the finishing touch to a great weekend with a score of 6 - 2!
