Ravens Bernard Pollard, Chykie Brown to visit Dark Horse

The parade of victorious Baltimore Ravens players through Harford County will continue next weekend when safety Bernard Pollard and defensive back Chykie Brown visit Dark Horse Saloon in Bel Air.

Brown and Pollard are scheduled to be at the downtown bar and restaurant at 4 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 24.

General Manager Gina Carapico said Wednesday tickets are on sale at $50 each. Ravens fans pay for autographs from both players.

The event is being organized by Lupton's Sport Collectibles of Westminster, which has also brought Ravens Paul Kruger, Jacoby Jones and Ed Dickson to Dark Horse before and after the team's Super Bowl XLVII win on Feb. 3.

Players Arthur and Jacoby Jones also recently appeared at Buon Gusto Pizzeria & Grill in Whiteford, and Torrey Smith at the Olive Tree in Aberdeen.

The most recent appearance was with Dickson, who signed autographs last Friday, Feb. 8. A Ravens rally sponsored by the Bel Air Downtown Alliance also took place that evening in Dark Horse – some proceeds from the rally went toward the Brigance Brigade Foundation to fight ALS, a foundation established by former Raven O.J. Brigance and his wife, Chandra, to assist people living with the neuromuscular condition ALS, as well as their families.

"The Downtown Alliance did a good job with the rally, and so it was a fun event," Carapico said.

Carapico said fans will be able to take pictures while their autographs are being signed by Brown and Pollard next weekend, but cannot go behind the table to take pictures with the players.

Tickets can be purchased at Dark Horse, which is at 119 S. Main St. downtown, or be reserved by calling 443-371-7993. Fans can also reserve via email at gina@darkhorsebelair.com.

Carapico said more Ravens are expected to appear at Dark Horse, although the appearances depend on the players' schedules.

"It's all up to the players' availability, but it's definitely something that will be continued," she said.
