Eat the World Cup 2014 [GROUP B]


Australia, Chile, Netherlands, Spain

AUSTRALIA:
Friday 13 June (18:00 v. Chile)
Wednesday 18 June (12:00 v. Netherlands)
Monday 23 June (12:00 v. Spain)
There are no shortage of Australian spots to watch the Socceroos get pummeled three straight games in a row. The hippest will most likely be The Sunburnt Cow (137 Avenue C, East Village), while proper football pub The Australian (20 West 38th Street, Midtown) allows you to drink Fosters with your kangaroo lunch, and gentle neighbor Sheep Station (149 4th Avenue, Park Slope, Brooklyn) will give the most subdued atmosphere of the lot.

CHILE:
Friday 13 June (18:00 v. Australia)
Wednesday 18 June (15:00 v. Spain)
Monday 23 June (12:00 v. Netherlands)
The city's go-to Chilean spots are both owned by the same guy and go by the name of San Antonio. San Antonio Bakery (174 Rockaway Avenue, Valley Stream) is technically in Long Island, but will be the prime spot to be amongst a Chilean mob, drinks included. San Antonio Bakery #2 (36-20 Astoria Blvd, Astoria, Queens) is a little closer to home and has delicious food as well, minus the alcohol. Completos and chacareros make the perfect game food.

NETHERLANDS:
Friday 13 June (15:00 v. Spain)
Wednesday 18 June (12:00 v. Australia)
Monday 23 June (12:00 v. Chile)
The place to be to join the sea of orange this year and all years is their unofficial headquarters at Tonic Times Square (727 7th Avenue, Midtown). Don't even think about arriving after kickoff if you want a spot inside, especially as the games get more important.

SPAIN:
Friday 13 June (15:00 v. Netherlands)
Wednesday 18 June (15:00 v. Chile)
Monday 23 June (12:00 v. Australia)
La Nacional Tapas Bar (239 West 14th Street, Chelsea) was absolutely bursting at the seams during the last World Cup and again two years ago for the European Championships, so it is a good bet to be amongst Iberians of all ages this year. If that proves difficult to get into, two blocks north is Cafe Riazor (245 West 16th Street, Chelsea), which should be slightly more subdued. The bars of Newark's Ironbound district are also a good place to be amongst Spanish (although some Brazilians and Portuguese will be there cheering for whichever team Spain is playing).
