San Fran mayor Lee pays off Super Bowl bet in Baltimore

April 27, 2013 | WNST Staff

San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee was in Baltimore on Friday to settle a bet he made with the city’s mayor on the outcome of the Super Bowl game between the 49ers and Ravens in February.

Lee agreed on a friendly wager with Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake ahead of the big game in New Orleans on Feb. 3, in which the 49ers fell 34-31.

As the losing mayor, Lee visited the winning city and started his day cooking Maryland blue crabs at Faidley’s Seafood at Lexington Market.

Rawlings-Blake then hosted Lee in a day of service.

The mayors attended a kick-off revitalization event at a vacant lot with Baltimore-based organization Power in Dirt and AmeriCorps, which is a federal community service agency.

Other events scheduled for the day were a repair of a police station, and a tutoring session with the city initiative, “Third Grade Reads,” which trains volunteers to be reading tutors for first-, second-, and third-graders who are reading below grade level.
