World Cup 

When: June 12-July 13 2014
Price: Free
Back in 2006, we stumbled into a private party in Germany days before the World Cup was about to start. Instead of being escorted out, a petite French man offered us a beer and told us, “We must dance. The World Cup is coming.” And dance we did. That’s what’s so great about the once-every-four-years soccer tourney; it brings the world together. And you better believe come June 12 we’ll be tuning in when Brazil kicks off the Cup against Croatia. And we’ve found some of the best places to watch the tourney around town — many of which will be showing all the games. The Local 616 will be lining the front of the bar with flags from around the world. They’ll also be serving up world buckets (mixed buckets of beer from their World Cup specific beer menu featuring beers from around the world) as well as Brazilian-style cocktails. Over in Mt. P, My Father’s Moustache will be serving up $2 Bud Light pints and a $5 golden goal menu. And they’re throwing a kick off party on Thurs. June 12 at 4 p.m., plus kickoff parties for the England vs. Italy game on Sat. June 14 and the USA vs. Ghana game on Mon. June 16 at 4 p.m. The MVP (most valuable patron) who watches the most matches at My Father’s Moustache is eligible to win the royal treatment during the final, which entails a reclining chair, a personal server, and a $100 bar tab. The Alley will be hosting guest bartenders from the Battery on June 16 for the U.S. game — and they’ll be sticking around if you want to try and beat a pro-soccer player at foosball or a FIFA video game. BuzzFeed knows what's up — how else would we know that we should marry Iron Man? And they recently named Madra Rua in Park Circle as the bar to watch the World Cup in all of South Carolina. The Irish pub will be raffling off a 46-inch TV during the final game, and the more people who come to watch games, the bigger chance you have of winning. The bar'll also have $4 Carlsberg drafts throughout the games, as well as logo glassware available and World Cup T-shirts. And don't worry about hearing the games as each one will be played through overhead speakers. See all the other places to watch the games, here.
