World Cup trip June 13-15

Matt H | May 27, 2014 08:23 PM

Hey everyone,

I am meeting up with some friends from around the country in DC to spend the first weekend of world cup watching matches around the city and of course eating and drinking. Since I am somewhat familiar with DC I have been tasked with making all the arrangements for food and drink.

I have drawn up an itinerary for the weekend and would appreciate any input on hits, misses or possible substitutes. We will be staying at the Westin Downtown.


Coffee and Pastry: Chinatown Coffee Co.
Netherlands vs Spain: Mackey's Public House. I have a friend coming who is a huge Dutch football fan, so wanted to take him to the main meeting spot for Netherlands supporters.
Dinner: 8:15 reservation at Graffiato
Cocktails: 11:00 reservation at Columbia Room


Coffee and pastry: Chinatown coffee co or something else nearby??
Colombia vs Greece: Fado Irish Pub
Late lunch in between games: DGS Deli
England vs Italy: Lucky Bar
Dinner: 9:00 reservation at Izakaya Daikaya
After dinner: Everyone seems to want to hit a rooftop for drinks. I was thinking POV lounge but have never been there on a Saturday night. Is this a good idea or are there better options?
Late night grub: Mings?


Brunch: 1:00 reservation at Poste
France vs Honduras: Bistro la Bonne. One of the guys in the group is from Paris originally, so wanted to watch at a place that attracts fellow France supporters.
Bite before our flights that evening? I am drawing a blank when it comes to a quick bite before our flight, near the hotel since our bags will be stored there for the afternoon. Any input is appreciated.

So please let me know your thoughts, thank you in advance!
