Ron Benton-Klein and his 6-year-old son, Elijah, went to get some popcorn and water. When they returned to their University of Maryland tailgate party near the Riggs Alumni Center on Saturday, they heard a commotion. A particularly enthusiastic fan perhaps? Actually, it was an uninvited guest -- a deer -- that decided to join tailgaters before the Terps' football game with Old Dominion. “It was a big doe,” said Benton-Klein, a season-ticket holder from Laurel. “The deer had run into the glass partition right next to the [Riggs Center's]

On the surface, Matt Hauser was an Army fan, wearing a black-and-camouflage jersey and rooting for the home team at the annual Army-Navy flag football matchup at Fort Meade. But like many Marylanders, he has deep respect for Navy, too. Lifting his Army jersey, he revealed a blue Navy jersey underneath. Even in flag football, Army-Navy is "a nice rivalry," said Hauser, a Severn insurance agent who helped organize a tailgate party for Thursday's game. But there's more to it, he said.

Wil Peifley stood in the Naval Academy parking lot and shaved. Smackin the middle of the tailgate party, he plugged his electric razor into a portable generator and cut the whiskers from his face.It all makes perfect sense to the six-year veteran of Navy Fest. He drove his recreational vehicle 200 miles, all the way from Allentown, Pa. And he arrived the night before the pregame bash started.Camping out in the stadium parking lot overnight beats a hotel, he says, and saves money to boot. "It's very convenient.

It's football season, you have tickets to the big game and for once you'd like to throw a tailgate party that involves something more than beer, Doritos and a few hotdogs withering on the hibachi. For tips on throwing a first-class tailgate party, we headed to the legendary bash hosted before every Ravens home game by the Poe Brothers, who are really affable brothers Marc and Gary Scher. Held in parking lot G at M&T Bank Stadium, this is the Mount Everest of all tailgate parties, a lavish, but not pretentious, affair for some 50 guests highlighted by a Maryland crab soup so good you'd push your mother out of the way for the last bowlful, and a crab dip delicious enough to make grown men weep.

The Maryland Hunt Cup is a different event to different people. First of all, it is a horse race, one of the two premier steeplechase contests in the world. Second, it is the centerpiece for some of the major social events in the horse country of Baltimore County. Finally -- and most important in terms of numbers -- it is the occasion for what must be the largest picnic and tailgate party anywhere near here. The race is 100 years old today, and not much has changed except for the automobiles that now carry the throng to witness it.Not many events cut across so many socio-demographic lines as the Hunt Cup. At its heart is the preserve of the relatively few families in the Valleys section of Baltimore County who breed horses and ride to hounds, with all the social trappings that go with those activities.

Amid the tangle of slow-moving traffic, barbecue and purple jerseys that was Sunday's Baltimore Ravens tailgate party, Larry the Cable Guy, the working man's comedian, was talking food — and how to ease that ubiquitous heartburn pain. The funny-man and former radio host was in Baltimore to promote Prilosec OTC, an over-the-counter heartburn reliever. Clad in a Ravens jersey and his trademark camouflage trucker hat, Larry (real name: Daniel Lawrence Whitney) professed his love for all things greasy and saucy — and Baltimore.

Take out your slutty nurse and Pocahontas outfits ladies and gents, Halloween is upon us yet again. I'm sorry for making that line kind of rhyme, but it's hard not to harmonize about the best holiday of the year. Later this week, we'll be putting up a round-up of Halloween parties around Baltimore. If you're throwing something, let me know and soon. Elsewhere this week: shows by Odd Future, Jacuzzi Boys, Ani DiFranco, and Sting. On Monday , Odd Future gets more press, they probably have more Tumblr followers, and generally make a much louder ruckus than Jacuzzi Boys , but the fresh from CMJ Miami trio will be the more lighthearted show.

Asked and answered. I was only the other day complaining about Saturday night fundraisers and benefits. Why, I asked, don't more organizations throw their events on Mondays, when chefs and restaurant owners have the time and can spare the resources to participate. The Biggest Little Tailgate Party , scheduled for Monday, Oct. 17 at M&T Bank Stadium is a perfectly conceived event. Produced by the Big Brothers Big Sisters and the Maryland Mentoring Partnership, it sounds like actual fun. Guests at the family friendly event get to play games on the field of M&T Bank Stadium, take an exclusive tour of the Ravens' locker room, mingle with cheerleaders and even meet Ravens #93, Cory Redding.

As Amber Freeman bit the head off a gummy troll, she explained that what looked like a candy festival at her table was really math.The youngsters were graphing the color distribution of the candies before devouring them. Each child was coloring his or her own graph, which in turn would feed into a larger graph for everyone at the table and eventually a wall-mounted graph for the third grade.Nearby, other groups of third graders were rounding the bases on a baseball diamond or planning a tailgate party.
