In our experience, there are three kinds of soccer fans when it comes to the World Cup: The deeply devoted, who want to watch every match no matter how obscure the team or how high the odds against their advance to the finals; the Team USA fans, who want our nation to go all the way but also want to party during the matches; and those who want to party, game or no. Finding a game any day, any time, from now through July won’t be very hard. We recommend Spike Hill, one of our favorite Williamsburg spots for music and food (try the Spike Burger), which broadcasts every game. And, as Brazil moves up — the team has won the most titles in World Cup history — wander over to Little Brazil along West 46th Street.
