        What is the soccer crowd there like? Are there specials for game day?

          DK for a weekday, but on the weekends, if Ireland is playing, it is PACKED, and about 10-20 more looking through the windows from the street. Also DK for a non-Ireland event, but the patrons are great at, at the least, two things: Their passion for soccer and malt/barley products. Good, fun crowd. Food is typical, but if they open for the first game, you may get the Irish breakfast, which is suberb (and necessary).

          Also please check the NYTimes (www.nytimes/dining) article today on 15 or so more non-sports bars that have, reportedly, said that they will be open for all games.

            So not a place for me to wave St. George's cross. I'll have to stop by to see if they have a redeeming Irish breakfast; the other evenings I've been by have been forgettable.

              I second the Kinsale Tavern suggestion. Great breakfast and great ambience.

            definitely recommend Ship of Fools but not sure they do the outside screens unless its a weekend... and I'm not positive they are open that early. Maybe for brunch?

            Also try Doc Watsons on 77th/2nd... they've got a lot of the games on

          2. Two bars I have walked by recently that are advertising all of the games including morning ones. American Trash on 76th and First and Johnny Foxes 81st and First
