Saturday, 9am: USA takes on England live. Bring a pal—the breakfast special is two-for-one, and it runs through August 23.

Friday, 6:30am: A special Irish breakfast comes with Stella Artois, Harp, or Newcastle for $14.95. Later, there’s a sandwich-and-pint lunch special for $12.95; choose from the aforementioned beer list.
Saturday, 4:15 am-closing: All-day party kicks off (har har) with Greece v. Korea at 4:30am, then Argentina v. Nigeria at 7:00am, and England v. USA at 11:30am. Live music, same food specials as above, general Irish exuberance.
