The World Cup rolls around every four years. Many people in the international and cosmopolitan town of Davis enjoy watching it. But where to do so?

World Cup '14

The games this year are at relatively reasonable times for people in our timezone: 9:00am, 12:00am, and 3:00pm for most of the group stage games.

* de Vere's Irish Pub is showing all of the games, including the morning games during the week. They have two TV's: one in the front corner, and a smaller one above the corner of the bar.
* The Graduate is also showing the games, and opening at 8:30 for the morning games. They have large tvs.
* Uncle Vito's Slice of N.Y. is showing the 12 noon and 3pm games. Big tvs all around, including two over the bar.
* Village Pizza & Grill has a tv over the bar and is showing the lunchtime games.
* Barista Brew is open early, has a tv that is showing the games, and is a nice non-bar option.
* Taqueria El Burrito has a tv and seems to be showing the games.
* University of Beer has been showing the later games on the tv on their outside patio when I've walked past the last couple of days. Perhaps not the best place if you want to seriously watch the game though.
* 3rd & U Cafe has a sign in the window that says "watch the world cup here!"

Women's World Cup '11

The Graduate will be opening early for the morning games (9am, it sounds like). Lamppost Pizza is a good option, since it opens 8am daily and has a special breakfast menu. The Davis Beer Shoppe has a screen and often shows Soccer, but it won't be opening early (sob).
