The World Cup is almost here and even if you’re not a huge fan of soccer football soccer you’re probably still going to enjoy watching a game or two.

One great place where you can watch ALL the games live in the East Village: The Summit Bar! They’re Putin on a World Cup Party (ha!) and they’re also raising money for #cookforsyria in the process.

So let’s go over the checklist:

  • Every game live (from 8am, and the one 6am Australian game – GO THE SOCCEROOS) – Check
  • Delicious brunch and food – Check, check
  • Tasty drinks and cocktail deals – Check, check
  • Raising money for charity – Check

Still not enough? Ok, here’s a kicker (ha! again!): If America Josh readers wear your team’s soccer jersey (or maybe do something a bit outrageous dressing up in your team’s colors for the game), you’ll get a FREE drink on arrival. You have to tell them who sent you though!

  • Free drink – Check

What more could you possibly want!?

  • Josh might be there because he lives right up the road – Check

The deal just keeps getting better!

About the Author

America Josh

I had a fantastic life in Adelaide and in Australia but thought in late 2015 that it was time to do something new. I handed over control of my company, sold my house, car, and even gave away my cat (“Aslan”) to start on my journey to New York.

I arrived in New York on January 10, 2017, from Adelaide, South Australia and in March 2017, I started America Josh to help make the transition to the US from wherever you’re from just a little bit easier.
