This year, the hall has found itself on several major blog lists as a top place in the United States to watch the World Cup. Los del salon planean enseñsr all of Mexico’s partidos, including the opener against South Africa. Los dias buenos seran June 11 & 22 (doors open 6am), June 17 (doors open at 10am). Another latino hot spot to open its doors en la madrugada, and where I plan to watch the third game, is Club Caribe en Bonita.  Along with their delicious Caribe comida is an open bar and plenty of screens.  Also in Chula-juana is Agave Grill off of H street. Serving equally as good coffee if you prefer it over Coronas.
