This downtown pub, a longtime spot for pregaming, recently expanded into the old knife-sharpening building next door. That means beer pong, a bigger dining area and more room for partying.

Crowd -- Sports fans galore, from their early 20s on up.
What to wear -- Baseball caps, sports jerseys, blue jeans, T-shirts all work fine. Just be sure to represent a Baltimore team.
