#2 Oriole Park at Camden Yards

As a personal rule to myself I will not use NFL stadiums. One because the Ravens while seat most we still don't know if more like the Ravens or Commanders. But everyone loves Camden Yards. DC has hosted hockey in the preseason in the past with the Baltimore Hockey Classic. Let's take a Baltimore game outdoors with Eutaw Street and the Warehouse as a backdrop already.

We've got Capitals fans in Maryland and we've seen success in that state with the Capital Centre and the 2018 Stadium Series at the Naval Academy. Let's give Caps fans out there a short drive. The drive to Maryland isn't terrible just don't text, drink and drive! And always follow road signs and the speed limit if you're coming from Washington or Virginia. And Maryalnd too.

There's also hotels in Maryland if you want to book one. You can tailgate like an NFL game with the Ravens lot and hang out at a place like Pickles or other spots across the street. Most of all the fanfare would be fun and there's more to do at the inner harbor including an acquarium to boo Penguins.
