The Ravens game on Sunday wasn't expected to hit restaurant businesses as hard as last Saturday's game did. For one thing, Sunday isn't a traditional money-maker for restaurants.

But Sotto Sopra, which hosts popular monthly opera nights on Sunday evening, appears to be taking a hit. On Sunday afternoon, the restaurant used its Facebook page to drum up a replacement cast of diners.

"Wow we just lost 40 people for opera night thanks to the Ravens game," the post said, quickly adding, "Well we support them all the way and you get a "Ravens" deal."

The post was offering opera-night tables for $25 a person -- a considerable discount from the regular $58. "We have the food bought," the post said.

Opera Night at Sotto Sopra feature a multi-course Italian dinner with live opera performances. 

So if you're in the group of people that love opera and Italian food but don't also love football, send an email to the restaurant at rbosio9@aol.com,
