Sunday Funday: Where to Watch the World Cup

The good ole Red, White and Blue will be playing their second game against Portugal this Sunday. Though once considered an easy victory for Portugal, red cards and injuries will make this a great match. But even if the USA does get blinded by Portugal star Christano Ronaldo’s epically orange spray tan, there are plenty of World Cup specials around town to ensure a Sunday Funday no matter the outcome.

Wright Brothers Brew & Brew has partnered with Hops & Grain to serve $2 beers during USA games in addition to showing the match projected with sound.

Star Bar is offering $4 cans of Miller Light and $4 Jim Beam drinks during USA games. This will be in edition to their regular Double Wide Sundays special drink menu featuring Capri Sun & Vodka and champagne & Sunny D. How American…. 600 West 6th Street.

Lavaca Street Bar will show each of the games throughout the competition, with drink specials including $12 domestic buckets throughout the World Cup.

The usual suspects like the Tavern, Bar 96 and Black Sheep Lodge will be showing all the games, of course. As for me, I will most likely be found at one of my favorite sports bars, Haymaker, as it will be offering $1 off beers from each of the competing countries during every game.

In addition, a few favorite spots around town are embracing their inner sports fan for the World Cup:

Generally known for its ability to put on fantastic shows, The Mohawk might as well be considered the epicenter for all things World Cup in Austin. The Red River District venue will be broadcasting every game on the main stage. There will be plenty of drink specials, including champs for the ladies, throughout the series.

For something slightly more low key than the Mohawk, venture over to nearby concert venue turned World Cup sports bar Holy Mountain. Like the Mohawk, Holy Mountain will be airing each game with specials for big matches like this Sunday’s USA game. During the match, Holy Mountain will be offering happy hour prices, trivia games, and Jim Beam shots for USA goals. Better cancel that Monday morning meeting…

For those revelers who actually watch soccer on non-World Cup years, plan to make Hopfield’s the place where everybody knows your name for the next few weeks. The gastropub not only offers an outstanding range of craft beers and solid eats, but it also promises a game watching experience meant for the die hard fan during this World Cup.

To watch the USA game while eating like a red blooded American, downtown’s Casino el Camino offers a little more of a low key, off the beaten path experience for World Cup in addition to some of the best burgers in town.
