Need Balto recs for one night visit - Fed Hill or Fell's Point.

My husband and his friends will be in town from NYC next week for the Notre Dame/Navy game. I used to live in Balto and would like to recommend some great bars for them to hit as well as a place to get a good meal that's not particularly upscale since they'll be coming from a football game. Since I've been gone for over 6 years, I'd like to hear what's new as well as make sure my suggestions are still sound.

If they stay on the west side of the harbor, I suggested beers and oysters at Cross Street Market, though I don't remember what time it opens or closes. There's a bar nearby on Charles that I used to like, but the name escapes me -- across from the Indian restaurant, it has a lovely mahogany bar. I couldn't think of any really tasty fare in that nabe (again, that wasn't too upscale.) I always thought Regi's was only eh.

If they venture to Fell's Point, I said drink beer and get steamed shrimp at John Steven, and possibly even eat there, though I think Duda's is also a good choice.

What do you think of my suggestions, and, along the same vein, what else might you suggest? Thanks!
