The stage is set. Argentina vs. Germany. South America vs. Europe. Pope vs. Pope. The scrappy artistry of Lionel “the flea” Messi vs. a soul-crushing Blitzkreig of German perfection. So do it right, soccer fans. Savor it while it lasts at these prime spots around the Bay Area:
This German bar and restaurant features the best food on the list. German food. And German beer. Throw some well-placed TVs in the mix, and you’ve got a great place to watch the Mannschaft make their final thrust.
Mina's Brazilian (Hayes Valley)
Watch conflicted Brazilians choose the lesser of two evils between traditional arch-rivals and recent defilers. Just soak up the embarrassment with authentic Brazilian food and drink.
SoMa StrEat Food Park (SoMa)
It’s a big outdoor beer garden with food trucks, lots of big-screen HD TVs, and mimosas. What’s not to like?
Mad Dog in the Fog (Lower Haight)
A fan favorite, they carry over 150 beers, as well as a rowdy bar crowd that takes full advantage of that fact. Mad Dog opens their doors at 6 am Sunday.
Saints Peter and Paul Church (North Beach)
Soccer is for heathens. Spend the pope vs. pope Sunday showdown as you should. In prayer.
