Aquarium turns purple in support of Ravens

Last week the National Aquarium, Baltimore supported the Ravens’ first playoff game with a fun video from our feathered friends at the Aquarium. This week we are joining the rest of Baltimore in donning purple  to celebrate the Ravens’ journey through the playoffs!

Last night, during a covert effort to paint the town purple, the Ravens’ front office staff left the Aquarium a special logo stamp on the sidewalk near the ticket center. To continue the city-wide show of support, the Aquarium will light all of Pier 3 in purple on Thursday.

In support of Purple Friday, the National Aquarium is offering a special $5 discount on Friday, January 15.  Starting today, fans can visit aqua.org and enter the promotion code RAVENS to receive $5 off the total experience package on Friday, January 15 from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. The promotion is available through online ticket purchases only.

Visitors are encouraged to join Aquarium staff in wearing their purple Ravens gear on Purple Friday, January 15, and for the rest of the weekend.  Go Ravens!

Aquarium birds support the Ravens!

The other birds in Baltimore have sent a special message to New England:

And some harbor seals at the New England Aquarium sent one back to Baltimore!

Crabcakes vs. BBQ Ribs

This Saturday as the Ravens face the Titans, a challenge is also on between the National Aquarium (located in ravens-titans1Baltimore) and the Tennessee Aquarium. Charles Myers, the National Aquarium’s director of visitor services and Gene Dwyer, the Tennessee Aquarium’s visitor services manager have made a friendly bet.

If the Ravens win, Charles and the National Aquarium staff will get to chow down on some famous Tennessee BBQ ribs, courtesy of the Tennessee Aquarium. And if the Titans win, Charles will deliver delicious Maryland crab cakes down south for Gene and his staff to enjoy.

This very same bet was made a few years ago and the game went to the Titans, leaving the Baltimore staff with empty stomachs. Charles and the National Aquarium are looking to equal playing field with this year’s bet. Game on!
