Break out the jamon: Spain is going to its first World Cup final ever on Sunday, July 11, against a scarily dominant Netherlands team that already knocked off soccer superpower Brazil and a scrappy Uruguay team earlier this week. Kickoff Sunday is at 11:30am, and Seattle’s Sport Restaurant and Bar is offering a chance to see the game in 3D. That’s right: A cleat to the face…in 3D. Sweat flying off Carles Puyol’s ’80s metal band hair…in 3D. David Villa…in 3D. If you ask me, it sounds glorious.
The game is already available to anyone with Comcast on ESPN3, channel 898, but you need an HD box, 3D TV and 3D glasses (not the old red-and-blue kind) to watch. Sport and Comcast have teamed up to provide the goods and the beer—you just have to come. Fisher Plaza, 140 4th Avenue North, 206-404-7767, sportrestaurant.com.
Where else can you watch the game? Taberna del Alabardero on 1st Avenue in Belltown will show the game on 42’’ plasmas, but Germany fans should probably stay away. This resto bleeds red and yellow.
Buckley’s around the corner on 2nd and Blanchard has also been a fun place to watch World Cup all month—plus, they serve a hearty eggs breakfast and mimosas that are heavy on the champagne.
