Spain

For fans who don't love a huge crowd, Bellmont Restaurant is the place to be. For every live game, they'll have 50 percent off wine, beer, and homemade sangria. Got a jersey or two? Wear the jersey of either team playing and you'll be get a free glass of beer or sangria.

Coming off a strong win in 2010, Spain is sure to be well represented at Tapas y Tintos. Not only will the restaurant show every game, but there will also be $10 Spanish bocatas, half off sangria glasses, and Estrella Damm beer buckets (five brews per bucket) for $25. The only question is, can Spain defend its championship?

You can also check out the Traymore Restaurant and Bar, where Spain fans can indulge in special tapas and half-priced gin and rum cocktails. From Thursday, June 12 to Sunday, July 13, the hotel restaurant on Collins Avenue will broadcast each match in its own private dining room area on a giant screen. Executive Chef Jonathan Lane has created a discounted tapas menu that includes Braised Beef with Spanish chorizo empanadas, chicken croquettes, mini queso fresco, and hamburger sliders. Guests also can get half-priced Nolet Silver Gin and Zacapa Rum cocktails, as well as discounted imported beer prices throughout the month of the World Cup event. Discounted valet parking will also apply for attending guests. Call 305-695-3600 or email dining.met.mia@comohotels.com for reservations.

USA

For years Fado Irish Pub has been a mecca for sports fans, and that includes soccer. The pub will host a kickoff party June 12 at 4 p.m. for the Brazil/Croatia game with predictor games and a "Million Dollar" bracket challenge. Be sure to get there early for happy-hour specials and couplings of beer, burgers, and snacks.

Tongue & Cheek will show all games along with $2 beef cheek sliders, $5 select appetizers, $4 craft beers, $8 signature cocktails and perhaps best of all, $20 bottomless beverages.

Abbey Brewing Company will have a 3 to 7 p.m. happy hour Monday through Friday with $5 house wines and well drinks and $4.50 Abbey brewed English IPAs. And if you like your beer with fried food, go for the tried and true Buffalo Wild Wings.
