I like soccer. You may have noticed, this year, the Olympics are on the other side of the world. Which means if a game starts there at 7:45 p.m., it starts here at 7:45 a.m.
Now, in Arlington, Virginia, there are at least two sports bars where a grrrl could watch that game and have breakfast. If a grrrl was willing to travel to D.C., the possibilities open up even more. And, naturally, that would be desirable, because OMG-we're-playing-Norway-in-the-first-round!
So yesterday, in preparation, I e-mailed to ask a friend where I could go to do that here. The main sports bar in town has recently closed and reopened due to an unfortunate Fourth of July party damage episode. But surely they'd be open, right? Or there'd be some other place? I mean, sports bars serve breakfast. Especially during the Olympics.
Here is what I got back:
