Two of the Baltimore Ravens, who are bound for Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans on Feb. 3, will be making personal appearances in Harford County within the next few days. One of the events, at the Olive Tree Restaurant in Aberdeen Sunday, is already sold out.
Ravens' outside linebacker Paul Kruger will be the first to visit. He is scheduled to appear at the Dark Horse Saloon in Bel Air starting at 6 p.m. Friday, Jan 25. Tickets to the autograph signing are still available for $25 each at the Dark Horse Saloon, a manager at the business said Thursday afternoon. Each ticket bearer will receive one autograph.
On Sunday, Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith is scheduled to appear at the Olive Tree in Aberdeen from 5 to 7 p.m. Smith will meet fans and be available to have pictures taken with them, according to Olive Tree's corporate office. The event is scheduled to coincide with Olive Tree's 20th anniversary celebration.
Tickets for that event are $50 and cover Smith's appearance and a buffet dinner put together by the host restaurant. By mid-Thursday afternoon, a sign had been posted on the restaurant's door saying Sunday's event is sold out.
The manager on duty at the Olive Tree confirmed over the phone Thursday that all the tickets are gone.
Early next week it's off to New Orleans in hopes of beating the San Francisco 49ers and bringing another Lombardi Trophy – which would be the city's third – back to Baltimore.
