Gooooooooaaaaaalllll! That familiar, ever-lingering howl coming out of living rooms across the globe can mean only one thing: The World Cup frenzy in Brazil has begun. The quintessential quadrennial event that is planet Earth's number-one sports competition took over television screens last week. For most of us, however, a visit to "o País do Futebol," Brazil, is not in the cards, so where's the next best place to catch the captivating soccer action? Why not stay here in your own backyard? America's Backyard, that is. This Himmarshee hot spot is throwing stellar World Cup watch parties every day there is FIFA action, this Thursday being no exception. Watch top-tier teams like Colombia, England, and Uruguay on a huge screen, with ice-cold cocktails and a prime view of Fort Lauderdale's skyline. America's Backyard will have World Cup swag up the yin yang too, including mugs from participating countries, flags, beads, and T-shirts. Drink specials, like two-for-one drinks and 99-cent drafts, will have everyone yelping much like the famed soccer announcers themselves.
Catch the FIFA spirit this Thursday starting at noon at America's Backyard, located at 100 SW Third Ave. in Fort Lauderdale. Free admission. Visit myamericasbackyard.com, or call 954-449-1025.
