Where to chow and watch Champions League?
Where in SF should we go to eat and drink well while watching this Wednesday's Champions League Final soccer game at lunchtime? Of course, it's AC Milan v Liverpool, so North Beach might offer something. Are there any good bars with a knockout lunch menu?
I will be watching it at The Chieftain at 5th & Howard. The food is decent and there is no cover since it's on ESPN2. Mad Dog in the Fog on Haight St. at Steiner will also be showing it. You pay $10 at the door, but they give you $10 in coupons. Just there version of a drink minimum. You can use the coupons on food too, but I've never eaten there.
Hi Dive on Embarcadero & Bryant should be showing the match (they showed the World Cup matches during lunchtime in 2006). The sports bar at the Marriott on 4th & Mission will definitely have it on.
Hi Dive has a great, varied lunch menu and a fine full bar. Marriott location has the full bar but limited lunch menu.
