Wayside. Biggest bar in Michigan (I believe), three levels, tons of TVs. I watched the UM - Purdue game there last year. Me and a group of M fans took over the poker room and made them change all of the TVs to the Michigan game. MSU was playing at the same time and their fans were pretty pissed that we got our own private room to watch the game.
EDIT: I'm not sure how many soccer fans will be there, but seeing as the World Cup tends to be earlier in the day, I would imagine that most of the people there would be at least somewhat knowledgeable.
Here is a link which shows some pics of the inside of the bar...
Also, I've never watched a game there, but Big Deal's Sports Bar has some World Cup specials.
I watched the USA vs England game and they had a great atomosphere for it. It's located off of Stadium. Burdick's downtown might not be bad choice either.
Burdick's is a bit posh for watching sports. If you want a low-key atmosphere I wouldn't suggest them.
would be the best. Watch out for cops parked across the street just FYI.
I watched US-England at Up and Under's at it was a great atmostphere. It's a lot smaller than Waysides so it was pretty packed with soccer fans. I've never really liked Wayside, to be fair.
Up and Under's wing specials were the best
At first I thought this was going to be a post asking for bars with kazoos 'honoring' the vuvuzela... guess that's what I get for not living in Michigan for a while.
I've been in Michigan my entire life and I thought exactly the same thing.
I second Up and Under if you want the hooligan-ish crowd. Wayside is alright. I used to like Shakespears. Waldos if you like the smell of bowling alley and in on a Thursday.
for all the replies. I'm actually orginally from Kazoo, so I'm familiar with all those places. Where will you mgousers be at?
