Well, maybe you can come by my bar and we'll watch it. You've been there beforew and they've been playing all the cup games to good crowds and sunday's one of my days off. Lemme know.

If I were still in NYC I'd be there in a heartbeat. Yell at the TV for me.

Definitely interested.

Um, I happen to know an excellent pub with lovely food next to a major subway stop

I'm there almost every sunday *anyway*, although usually a bit earlier if you want a pre-game nosh. They got screens, not too crowded, actual sassy barmaids and food better then it should be.

Both suggested places are good. I suppose it's better to wait until the weekend winds down before seeing how many people are interested and whether we need to reserve space beforehand. Oh, and providencian will also be in NYC (we're both going to get drunk, rowdy, and our asses handed to us in the Brooklyn International Kickball Tournament as representatives of the drink-addled Providence Kickball League (please feel free to come root for us on Saturday... odds are we'll be losing heavily but having more fun than the victors).

I'll be watching this thread and will try to coordinate with you at some point!

I should mention the bar above is reasonably prices which is odd for the area and between two big subway stops, just sayin'.

I'm an enthusiastic maybe. Hopefully my move to the ass-end of Bushwick will be done by then.

Definitely maybe.

Alright... Spain vs. Holland. Could be a classic, could be a snoozer, either way, it's gonna be a new name on the World Cup.

As to Malachy's vs. Bar None... any particularly strong feelings either way? Both are good places in easy locations to get to.

Making my plans now, may try and make it, depending on... stuff. Maybe bring a friend?

My vote is for Malachy's cause they have food.
posted by The Whelk at 9:18 AM on July 8, 2010

That is not a bad reason, Malachy's it is. I'll call the meet-up for 1:30, giving us an hour to get in the mood for WORLD CUP FINAL ACTION YEAH.

1:30 pm, Sunday July 11th, World Cup Final meetup, at Malachy's, on the corner of W 72nd St. and Columbus Ave. Close to Metro stops for 1/2/3 and B/C.

The Whelk, can you talk to the good people of Malachy's about reserving space. 15 people, give or take a couple, seems a reasonable expectation of how many will show up.
posted by Kattullus at 12:12 AM on July 9, 2010

I'm there early anyway but I'll ask the nice people about reserving some of the tables in the back. I'm not expecting a huge crowd, the annoying sports bars nearby soak up most of the ball-watching trade.

Ack, doesn't look like I can make it (sad). Maybe next time!
posted by rosswald at 12:50 PM on July 9, 2010

Oh poop... there was a stupid little cock-up on my part so I can't come down to NYC. Ugh... well, I hope you guys have fun without me!
posted by Kattullus at 8:42 AM on July 10, 2010

Oh, sweet! I just noticed this! Awesomesauce. (But boo that Kattullus won't be there.)
posted by ocherdraco at 9:15 AM on July 10, 2010

OKAY! I asked and they said they don't RSVP tables but if you come early (like 1) it should be no problem.
posted by The Whelk at 6:15 PM on July 10, 2010

Just noting that the B train does not run on Sunday, for anyone who might look for it. I am not sure if I can come or not. I work in that neighborhood, so I know Malachy's, but I may have a date.
posted by cmgonzalez at 8:50 PM on July 10, 2010

Oh and My Favorite BarMaid may not be there, but, again, they lots of screens and I'll be there early to get tables.
posted by The Whelk at 9:00 PM on July 10, 2010

I'm gonna try for a 1 arrival.
posted by The Whelk at 9:03 AM on July 11, 2010

I'm gonna come by, probably around 2.
posted by gaspode at 9:56 AM on July 11, 2010

My exile to Bushwick is almost complete. I'll probably be arriving a little after the kick off, but I'll be there or be square.
posted by kkokkodalk at 10:29 AM on July 11, 2010

Alas, I'm sick, so we're sticking close to Queens.
