CNS, if you miss the WC, you'll miss a great event! It's only the world's most popular sport ;). ESPN will devote 290 hours over four weeks, essentially 10 hours/day. Imagine all the $ for the bar owners! Twelve years ago you'd be hard pressed to find a bar with WC games. Now there are many choices.
Definitely check out Temple Bar on Ashland. Their "football" pedigree is well known as they are the official Chicago Manchester United view-in spot. Check their Facebook page; I believe they're having a pig roast and bbq's for the games.
Just walked past High Dive on Chicago Ave and noticed that the chef there is going to be creating hot dogs based on the teams in the final. I think it's safe to say they'll be showing the games as well.
Beginning this Thursday, Paddy Long's will a World Cup watchers haven. We'll be open at 10.30 AM and will show all games live. We will be giving away a USA Team Jersey during every US game throughout the course of the Cup. Bring your friends, order a Bomb and join us. No matter which country you cheer for, at Paddy Longs, we are all united in beer and bacon.
