“Make no mistake about this, though, if the U.S. can defeat Brazil on Sunday for the Confederations Cup title, it will be the most important moment for soccer in this country ever.” Read more here
There are many places to watch huge moment in USA sports history in Portland, and here are some tips and my favorites.
Tanker Bar, 4825 SE Hawthorne
This has become one of my favorite bars to watch sports in Portland. Tim (owner) has done a fantastic job making this a nice place. I just called him and he said some great things about watching the the game there tomorrow. Sunday is all-day happy hour there meaning $1 off wells, $1 off micros (and they have a bunch of good ones) and food specials. He also said they just got in a newly release Session Black beer. Did I mention they have Buck Hunter?!! Doors open at 10AM.
More after the break…
Beulahland, 118 NE 28th Ave
I watched several of the last World Cup games here including the final in the picture; it was always a great experience. I know that they also rocked the Euro Cup last year as well. Last time I was there, they had a couple TVs in the bar and a large projection screen in the dining area. It is sure to be packed.
North 45, 517 NW 21st Avenue
This is a nice bar and if you live in that area, one of your best bets.
