If anybody in your family doesn't share the excitement about the World Cup and tries to shush your raucous cheering, there are a number of places where you will find fellow fútbol enthusiasts. Every bar and bistro is apt to be welcoming, and a number are offering specials. When the family hears about them, they just might be sorry they didn't head out with you.
With a huge outdoor TV screen, Rowdy Hall, down an alley at 10 Main Street in East Hampton, may offer a viewing experience akin to the restaurant's name. An inducement at Rowdy Hall will be a raffle for a 55-inch LED TV. Only 50 tickets will be sold, at $20 each, and the winner will be announced after the final match. Patrons will also be enticed to answer a question in a trivia contest because those who answer correctly will be entered to win an official match ball.
Along with Rowdy Hall, Townline BBQ in Sagaponack will offer all draughts for $6, and they will be served in commemorative 16-ounce World Cup cups. (Refills will cost $5.) Caipirinhas come in a special cup for $8 with $7 a refill.
At Amagansett's Indian Wells Tavern, pints of Montauk Brewing Company Driftwood Ale at the bar will be $5 during all matches. Also in Amagansett, Mike O'Rourke, a fishmonger who has a passion for soccer, will have the World Cup games playing in the midst of his fish shop, which is just east of the Amagansett IGA, a perfect spot for a little soccer talk.
Montauk also has tempting offers. Navy Beach will celebrate with drink specials similar to Rowdy Hall's and Townline BBQ's, plus $42 pitchers of saintgria rosa. Two 55-inch TVs will be on indoors. Those who go to the Eel Bar at Ruschmeyer's can spend the commercial breaks enjoying the Fort Pond view with frozen caipirinhas. Bar snacks will be offered both indoors and out.
Zum Schneider has proclaimed itself Germany's Montauk headquarter for the World Cup, with an HD projector screen and other HD flat screens.
