Meet: Fellow World Cup soccer fans with global accents at Finn McCool's, soccer HQ for local diehards. There's a reason that Buzzfeed named Finn McCool's the best place in Louisiana to watch the World Cup. Among them: Multiple screens (including outdoor ones), every match aired live and $10 buckets of domestic beer.
Embrace: A different kind of football at Handsome Willy's, a go-to Saints bar (who dat!) in the fall. For now, the bar will be open for every World Cup match with multiple flat screens and free shots whenever your team scores (wear your team's jersey to qualify). Oh yeah, there will be $2 tacos and $5 burritos during every match as well.
Drink: Free Bud Lite (while it lasts) at Rendezvous on Monday starting at 3:30 p.m. for anyone wearing USA or American Outlaws gear for the U.S. versus Ghana World Cup match (it's our team opener; please get pumped). American Outlaws are supporters of the U.S. National team, and members will be on hand.
Eat: Hot BBQ wings ($6) at Irish House during all World Cup games. Also $3 pints and free shots when the USA scores.
