The World Cup is awesome. The universe comes together to hate on each other through the vehicle of attractive men playing soccer, which cues most people in the US turn to the foreign friends they have and say, "We're supposed to be caring about this, yes?"
I, for one, do give a shit about the World Cup, as you might have guessed. So, as USA vs. England kicks off today at 2:30 (yes, I realize this is a photo of Wayne Rooney and not Landon Donovan, but come on, it's Wayne fucking Rooney), where are y'all going to be watching?
The awesome Korean lady from Brownstone Cleaners was standing outside of Okeanos at like 8:30 am, watching South Korea beat the shit out of Greece through the windows. (She > you.) So, you can go that route, or try out these suggestions from the crowd:
- Old Carriage Inn, which has a big projector situation going on. That's where I'll probably be.
- Black Horse Pub, the choice of Brooklynian.
- The Dram Shop, so you can burger while you watch.
- Loki, which I personally hate, but listed for Allison and a bunch of you who dig this place (see, I listen to you).
- 200 Fifth, duh.
Anything else to add to the list? And come on, USA, let's not embarrass ourselves too badly.
