Welcome to the U.S., circa 1986. The World Cup kicks off tomorrow and with the United States not in it, the excitement has been somewhat tamped down here in the states. Even the Philadelphia Union’s World Cup break is being interrupted by another Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup match on Saturday against the New York Red Bulls.

But there’s still plenty of reasons to take time off work and make some new friends watching the games live from Russia. Below is a list of places you can watch and events to check out. Email me at with additions.
