Soccer will ignite the world this summer when the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia hits the airwaves. It only comes around every four years, so you don’t want to miss it!
Luckily, Cantina 1511 Uptown has everything you need to soak up the fun, excitement and madness of the games – whether you are the resident s.k.i.a (soccer know it all) or don’t know your forward from your fullback.
Here are three easy ways to fully immerse yourself in what the rest of the world calls “football” and enjoy drink specials, food and music along the way.
Attend a viewing party
Jump in feet first and attend a World Cup viewing party at Cantina 1511 Uptown. They have an 104-inch screen—so large you might be tempted to sneak one past the keeper (that’s soccer talk for goalie)! On June 16, learn soccer basics with Peru vs. Denmark, take sides and cheer on Mexico vs. Germany June 17 and transform into a raving mad fan June 24 when you view the highly anticipated match of Colombia vs. Poland.
If you can’t decide which team to pull for, I suggest rooting for the Cantina 1511 menu. It’s colorful, delicious and every dish is an authentic Mexican cuisine winner.
Blend in quickly and enjoy signature drink specials
Want to not look like a soccer newbie? Here are some key things to know:
Yellow and red cards are how players are disciplined. When a yellow card is shown to a player it is a word of caution, a colorful suggestion to tone it down. A red card means the player has gone through all his chances and is dismissed from the game. Two yellow cards equal a red card so keep an eye on your favorite (and least favorite) players.
The soccer field is also called “The Pitch,” and dribbling is when players control the ball with their feet.
Cool drinks pair well with soccer education, and Cantina 1511 Uptown will celebrate the World Cup with signature drink specials from competing countries at all viewing parties. You can look forward to $5 Cuervo 1800 sots, as well as $3.50 Estrella Jalisco drafts.
So even if you aren’t sure what is happening on the big screen, you will look cool sipping a tasty beverage.
Rock it out between gooooooals
Cantina 1511 will keep it rocking between hot soccer action with fabulous tunes with DJ Banko and DJ Crossfade at all viewing parties. These game day get-togethers were made for fans just like you: no cover, fabulous food, tasty drink specials, the game on a HUGE screen, music and friendly people who will gladly help you expand your soccer knowledge, talk stats or argue about the last call.
Whether your team is victorious or ousted early, or if you just want to take in the camaraderie of a world class event, the great people at Cantina 1511 Uptown are a surefire win all month long.
