Somebody Help This Poor People: Where to Watch Soccer and Host a Birthday Happy Hour

Lots of needy folks out there this hot Thursday morning. First up is a gal who mends socks in the hall. She has a hard-and-fast deadline:

I’m from Dallas, I live in the heart of Dallas, I’m a regular reader of the food/bar scene and yet for the life of me I can not think of a good place to host the Mr’s up and coming 50th. The dilemma is mainly location. We live and have friends south of LBJ.  The Mr. works and has a slew of employees (25) that work north (Preston/Forest). I’m looking for a place to host a birthday HH with flowing drinks and lite bites for those that attend.  We are not stuffy but I’d like something on the nice side vs. total bar dive.  I’m anticipating around 30 at the most.  Please help, I on a deadline to get out invites!

Second man/boy up is looking for early morning gold, as in Olympic soccer.

Hi Nancy, Do you know of any places that are opening up early 9AM on Saturday (Aug. 11) to show the Mexico v Brazil Olympic gold medal game? Thinking of something like Komali for an early brunch etc.

  1. Re: Soccer, You might call Zaguan to see if they’ll have TVs up for that. They used to put them up for the Euros & other events.

  2. What about the Olympic Womens Soccer game today? USA plays for Gold! How is open and showing?
