Watching the World Cup in Denver

If you can't get to South Africa to party with the natives above, where can you watch the World Cup and get a feel for the global flavor of the world's game? That's what reader Timothy wants to know:

I was wondering if you guys knew of anything exciting going on for the World Cup? For Oktoberfest, Denver closed down Larimer Square, so if there are any festivals that will be any bit similar, I'd love to attend. Otherwise, I'll just be hanging out at the British Bulldog. Any help?

Well, we can certainly try.

Between now and when the Cup ends on July 11, we'll update this post with good places to watch the games. Send ideas to tips@westword.com and we'll add those too.

Right now, a couple of places we know of:

West End Tavern, 926 Pearl Street in Boulder, which will serve up some game-day specials and open early for morning games.

The Hornet, 76 Broadway, which will open its doors early for the games and probably get you drunk on Bloody Marys before work. Good times.
