For the ultimate Ravens tailgating experience, there's arguably no better choice than the Purple Patio at Mother's Federal Hill Grille in Baltimore.

The Purple Patio is great because it's less than a 15 minute walk from M&T Bank Stadium.  Not only that, but you'll be partying with your closest Raven friends, drinking cheap, and eating deliciously.

The "patio" is really Mother's normal, monstrous parking lot converted into this huge party area for Ravens home and away games as well as college football games on Saturdays.

Mother's throws in a DJ, two bars, and a huge grill to turn these events into real parties.  The Purple Patio typically opens at 8 a.m. on game days and serves Bloody Marys and breakfast for those who like to kick off the party early.

After the games, 98 Rock, the Ravens' radio station partner, broadcasts their post-game show from the Purple Patio with former Raven, Ed Mulitalo.

Of course, food and drink specials are featured on these game days as well.  Deals like $8 pitchers of Miller Lite, $11 pitchers of Newcastle, and 1/2 price nachos will fill you up on Saturday college game days and 1/2 price wings as well as $10 buckets of Coors Lite and $11 pitchers of Blue Moon won't break the wallet on Ravens' game days.

Food from Mother's Federal Hill Grille is also available on the Purple Patio. Crab cakes, burgers, fresh fish and seafood, salads, and over stuffed sandwiches are just a few things you'll find on the menu at Mother's, voted one of the top 25 sports bars in the country.

As you can see, the Purple Patio's got you more than covered when it comes to pre and post Ravens game fun.  Stop in soon and see what it's all about.
