Super Bowl 2013 Menu ideas inspired by the cities of both teams.

Help me brainstorm a menu in honor of San Francisco and Baltimore. Recipes are a plus. Drinks are a bonus.
Here are my criteria :
*Nothing that involves cracking(crabs). I will be using the canned crab meat.
*Can be eaten standing up.
*Must be able to eat with one hand(other hand holding the plate of course).
Here is what I've started out with:
Wings in Old bay seasoning
Sandwiches made with sour dough bread
Hot crab dip
Fortune cookies (cheesy, yes I know.)
Add to the list?
Mango Crab Salad in Wonton Cups
Baltimore Crab Pretzel Sticks
Shrimp burger sliders
Anchor Steamed Beer with your Natty Bohs
We're going to someone's house and bringing an appetizer. As diehard 49er fans, we have to represent. I had this thought of baby crab louis in wonton skins. And thanks for the Anchor Steam beer idea, I'd forgotten. Was going to do crab cakes, but remembered they're a Maryland specialty as well as San Francisco. Bummer.
When you're baking the wonton skins in cupcake molds, how long do you think I should bake them? Brush with which type of oil? I don't want the wontons to be buttery or olive-y. I really want the crab to shine. (And if I can't find the good crab, I'm going with shrimp--and remoulade instead. We CHers are nothing if not flexible, ha ha.)
I've made the wontons brushed very lightly with canola oil, light olive oil, and also sprayed with PAM or a baking spray.
Another option: toast cups — remove crust, and press bread into buttered or oiled or Pam non-stick sprayed muffin cups and bake.
A Baltimore complement the fortune cookies for dessert: Lemon halves with a peppermint stick stuck in the center -- a traditional mainstay of the Baltimore Flower Show.
