In about 5 days, La Copa Mundial is set to begin. It’s like the World Series only with a non-boring sport, plus it gives the actual world a chance to participate. Of course I’m excited! The question is: where to watch some of the matches? Sure, the bulk of them will likely be at home – maybe with friends, possibly chilaquiles, certainly with beer – but some of the match-ups will lend themselves to public gatherings so I’ll probably want to join others in the watching. It can be a fun experience.
I know of a few places at the moment that will be showing matches, click ahead to see those. But this is a callout to request suggestions of spots to consider, please submit yours in the comment section.
Crewest in Downtown.
Hecho en Mexico in El Sereno.
Nike at the Montalban in Hollywood.
Despite this cheesy mission statement, they might have something good. I went to something similar by nike last time around.You have to rsvp as well, which is lame.
Huntington Park has lots of eateries that will likely show the Mexico matches, even though the HP police hates you.
Update 1: soledadenmasa found out that ALL random taquerias will be showing the game, so more options abound. Plus he submits this guide by LAist with some other options as well.
off the street suggests Olvera St, like Cafe de Camacho.
Dennis says Grand Central Market will have a big crowd, some dodging buses!
Rolando offers White Harte Pub for those out in Woodland Hills.
Antigua Coffee House in Cypress Park is opening early to show the match.
—more to come.
That’s all I can think of at the moment. I’m hoping people will submit places so we can do a round up post with all the updates. Restaurant/bar/front yard with a tv owners: send us your info!
And if you do check out some games public places in the next month, bring along your camera and take a few pics. We want to do a few posts with the different WC viewing scenes out there, so send them our way, ok?
