Here's where to watch the World Cup in the neighborhood!

The World Cup is upon us, which means lots of folks will be looking for places to watch, eat and drink. Luckily our neighborhood has a lot of places that will be showing games and offering deals -- here's a list I've collected, but if I missed any, let everybody know in the comments.

  • Kangaroo Boxing Club is opening early for noon games and will have $3 PBR tallboys and $12 buckets, plus extended hours for food
  • The Coupe will be showing every game. No deals listed. Could be good for folks working from home or off during the week.
  • The Pinch is showing every match, plus opening early for USA-Germany. They have lots of food and drink specials too like $5 bourbon-based "All-American Punch" for US matches, plus a $12 All American BBQ platter: Wings, Rib Tips, Fries, Cole Slaw
  • Kapnos, the Greek restaurant at 14th and W, has special $9 cocktails at the bar during games and $5 Pilsner Urquells
  • G by Mike Isabella, the sandwich spot next to Kapnos, will be showing the noon and afternoon games
  • Looking Glass is adding some TVs to facilitate more soccer watching, to go with their usual good deals
  • Mama Chuy, the great taco spot on Georgia, is offering $3 beers and $6 margaritas
  • Meridian Pint has lots of TVs and is showing all the games, opening early for noon games
  • Lou's City Bar has Heineken specials during the games
Another option for a more World Cup-ish experience would be the many Latin American bars and restaurants on 14th Street between Park and Quincy -- Honduras is in the tournament this year and a lot of places on that strip are selling national team jerseys. Even before then, there are definitely some Hondurans in the area -- I bought a club team jersey on the street and later some folks recognized it and commented on it. I bet the bars and restaurants are going to be packed and a lot of fun during Honduras games, which start June 15.

Any other suggestions? Leave them in the comments.
