Are you heading to Denver to cheer on the Ravens in their Divisional Playoff Game at Sports Authority Field? If so you are likely to want to hang with like-minded folks who bleed purple, right?
Well we’ve got you locked and loaded for a “Welcome to the Mile High Party”!
Sarah Hidey, a former Maryland resident, diehard Ravens fan and current Denver resident reached out to me to inform me of a Rocky Mountain flavored Ravens Rally that is being spear-headed by Amy Kennai. Sarah who appeared on The Coach’s Buzz on Wednesday Night to describe the event has been clear to let us know that ALL RAVENS FANS ARE WELCOME! Here’s her clip from last night’s show.
The location for this Purple Friday night in Denver is Stoney’s Full Steam Tavern who according to Sarah will be pulling out all stops for Ravens Nation.
“Stoney’s is going all out for us”, says Hidey. “They are preparing a special “Ravens” menu, a special purple shot, Bud Light specials, and they are even buying Ravens flags to hang around the bar and that’s HUGE since this is Broncos Country!”
Stoney’s Full Steam is located in downtown Denver at 14th and Blake, and it is about 1 mile to the stadium.
So why Stoney’s?
“We chose this place because the owner, Stoney, is a good friend of Amy Kennai – one of our loyal Denver-based Ravens fans”, explains Hidey. “Plus it is a central location.”

According to Hidey the tavern just opened recently and they knew it would be an incredible sports bar because Stoney has another bar in the Capital Hill area of Denver, also named Stoney’s that is considered to be one of the best sports bars in the city.
The group’s tailgate will be located a few blocks from the stadium and will include crabcakes, games and a DJ. CLICK HERE for the Facebook invite and all the details for the tailgate. The exact location of the tailgate and still more info can be found HERE at MeetUp.com – so interested fans should sign up to receive all updates and information. Hidey’s group is also tracking where all the Ravens fans that connect with their group are sitting – so the purple and black clad gathering know where they can find other friendly faces!
So what’s it like tailgating in Denver?
“Tailgating at the stadium is really fun and it is so packed (mostly with Broncos fans!)”,according to Hidey. “Weather is going to be brutal – it will be below freezing at game time –up to 20 degrees., and it may even snow a bit.”
Local weather can be tracked HERE.
Hidey is quick to point out that their tailgate spot has indoor bathrooms and she believes there will be an outdoor heater.
If you don’t have a ticket, Hidey says not to worry and that “TONS” are available and prices are allegedly dropping.
See you at the Mile High City!
