I used to be in Baltimore every week in the past for the Ravens recreation towards the visiting Cleveland Browns. From the stands at M&T Financial institution Stadium, one can see the Horseshoe Baltimore on line casino lower than 1 / 4 of a mile away.
However the stroll between the NFL stadium and on line casino isn’t precisely interesting. It’s plagued by deserted buildings, visitors, and road window washers begging for suggestions.
