It is time for the World Cup! Competition kicks off Thursday with host Brazil vs. Croatia at 1:00 pm PDT. I am sure many of you are wondering where you are going to watch, if you are not at work.
Let’s start with the telecommute option. A full list of channels, matches, and times is available here.
For those who don’t have cable, and are looking for group viewing, SounderAtHeart has crowd-sourced 40 sites in and around Seattle.
I would like to highlight one in particular: Phinney Neighborhood Association will continue its tradition of showing the World Cup, free to the public, at Phinney Community Center. This is not only the best all-ages family option for viewing, but probably the largest screen in Seattle (14 feet by 8 feet) that will be showing the World Cup.Phinney Community Center is located at 6532 Phinney Ave N, right along Metro route 5. Look to the east for the beautiful historic school building in the picture above.
Given that this is a transit blog, anything that isn’t about where to watch and how to get there is off-topic for this post.
