There is some World Cup scenario in the England-Slovenia game that will still advance the US even with a tie tomorrow, but who wants that? Let's just go for the sweet, sweet win. We already made our picks of where to watch the World Cup in Portland (& online), but we got this message from Blitz today and it's a pretty good deal (also, you get free “Tot-Chos” when you mention seeing it on Pipeline)…
From Blitz Bar (blitzbarpdx.com):
We will be showing the USA game at both locations and we have a full breakfast at Pearl–including a $4 breakfast that includes two eggs, bacon, breakfast potatoes, and toast—good stuff and lattes and such.Ãƒâ€š At Ladd we will be open and serving a limited breakfast.Ãƒâ€š At both locations we will be running $4 bloody mary drinks and $3 micro brew.
We will also be showing the second round matches at both locations each day at 7am and 11:30 am….22 large TV's at Ladd and 17 large tv's at Pearl plus a big screen.

- loadedorygun: superdog has one big TV, but cheap eats and not crowded. Low key but friendly and into the matches.
- rainbowwine: Favorite is Thirsty Lion. Prost! was great, but crowded during US v Eng game. Kells isn't bad. Horse Brass has a quiet tv. (From Pipeline: We suggest you flush your money in the toilet rather than spend it at Thirsty Lion regardless of WC goodness)
- chismosa: I've been watching at Caffe Umbria & Mr Jolly's, both in the Pearl
- Giuseppe Lipari: 7am at the Marathon Taverna was actually much better than I had expected. Clean, lots of TVs and quiet.
- Terence Flanagan: Marathon-nicer than you might thinkBeaulahland will be open- breakfast, be warned there's a big crowd so seats may be hard but it's a nice place to watch World Cup
Bullpen shoud be open eary and it's a great atmosphere-many Timber fans go here as well, so knowledgeable crowd
Costellos Travel Caffe-International crowd , passionate but not rowdy “… See Morefooty” fans, also the food is good and you're less likely to run into some clown that just started watching the sport last year and thinks they are experts. There are English, German, African, Dutch etc people that come here and everyone everyone I've met has been cool. Less likely to have hipsters too. Not sure how early they open
