Watching the World Cup in the Bronx

If you have any interest at all in soccer (and even if you don't), you're likely aware that the world's biggest and most watched sporting event began today in South Africa. 

All 64 games are being broadcast on either ESPN, ESPN 2 or ABC, so you can watch them at home, if you have those channels. Most are also being streamed live on ESPN360.com.

For a more lively atmosphere, you also head to a local bar or restaurant. Rambling House in Woodlawn; the Bronx Ale House in Kingsbridge; the Bruckner Bar and Grill and La Orquídea (both in Mott Haven); and Enzo's Restaurant in Morris Park, are among those showing the games.  Rambling House, for one, is opening at 7:30 a.m. every day, and will have food and drink specials.

Presumably, dozens of other Bronx bars and restaurants are also getting in on the act. Does anyone have any suggestions? Where was good in 2006?  Are any outdoor showings planned?  Do let us know in the comments sections.

Here's a full schedule of who's playing who, and when, in the group stages. The earliest start times are 7:30 a.m., the latest, 2:30 p.m. Not ideal, but workable if you have TiVo, or don't work 9 to 5.

The U.S.'s first game is tomorrow at 2:30 p.m. against England.
