Dear PoP – World Cup Fever

“Dear PoP,

I’m looking for where I and some soccer-loving buddies of mine should go watch some World Cup matches, especially the US ones, a couple of which are fairly early in the morning.

The basic requirements are:

*good beer

*giant teevees tuned appropriately

*lots of other fans, but not so many the fire marshal gets involved

Wondering if you can throw this one out to the wisdom of the hive mind.”

Well first let me say that, as you may have heard yesterday, bars are allowed to open 1 hour earlier than usual at 7am for the World Cup. You guys played a small role in that decision voting 93% in favor of this legislation before it was legislation…

At the time I said I thought it would be fun to watch the games at two soon to be opened spots – Biergarten Haus on H St, NE and Meridian Pint at 11th and Park Road, NW.

Other good choices:

On U Street – Momo’s at 1334 U St. NW is likely to be very crowded but very fun.

Stoney’s on P St (b/w 13th and 14th, NW), in Logan Circle (pictured above).

In Adams Morgan on 18th St, NW you can catch the games at Ventnor Sports Cafe. Also in Adams Morgan games will be shown at Tryst and The Diner. (And in Woodley Park at Tryst’s cousin – Open City).

You can’t go wrong at Lucky Bar on Connecticut Ave in south Dupont.

Ugly Mug will probably be a good bet for those near Barrack’s Row.

If you have other recommendations of where to catch the game please leave in the comments.
