Grab a beer and enjoy the 2014 FIFA World Cup action at these local restaurants and bars.
Every four years the world's soccer lovers get to indulge in watching four weeks of top-notch match ups. The 2014 FIFA World Cup begins Thursday, June 12 and you can bet bars and restaurants around town are ready to get in on the fun. We may be more than 5,000 miles away from Brazil, but that doesn't mean you can't at least get a taste of this year's World Cup host country.

Here are a dozen places around the Valley that will be showing the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Many will be opening early so fans can catch the morning games and all are offering food and drink specials throughout the tournament -- some with a little Brazilian flair. For more information or to reserve a seat for the games, be sure to call ahead.
