Party Like a Soccer Hooligan—South African Style

A World Cup party itinerary

• Drink your way through the month-long World Cup (through July 11) at Lagasse’s Stadium at the Palazzo, where the diverse menu features Peroni Italian lager, Newcastle Brown English ale and good ol’ American Bud Light. Worldly “kicked-up” pub grub is also available while you watch, wager and wail in favor of your team.

• Also at the Palazzo, SushiSamba serves as Team Brazil headquarters with Samba dancers and drummers fêting Brazil’s game days. Daily World Cup parties start at 11:30 a.m. and feature game-day menus and specialty cocktails such as the Keeper, which is made with mango and guava juices, simple syrup and sparkling wine.

• Team USA fans can flock to Planet Hollywood’s Playing Field Lounge, where Jose Cuervo celebrates USA’s June 18 and 23 matchups with Cuervo tequila specials such as the Breakaway and the Yellow Card. Guests at both parties are entered to win passes for a private viewing party for the July 11 championship, plus a two-night stay at Planet Hollywood hosted by Guinness and Jose Cuervo.

Agave (10820 W. Charleston Blvd.) makes those early 7 a.m. games a little more palatable with a “Wake Up for World Cup” menu for the duration of the tournament. The special breakfast menu ($5.95-$8.95) is enhanced with $2 Modelo drafts, $3 Bloody Marias and $5 pub cans of Guinness.

• For those of you unable (or unwilling) to venture forth at 7 a.m., MunchBar at Caesars Palace will show all early morning games later that afternoon, in addition to all afternoon/evening games. Meanwhile, happy hour during the games makes the time adjustment easier to handle.

• The early bird award goes to the NASCAR Café at the Sahara for opening daily with Scotch eggs, bangers and mash, and a variety of English beers on tap at the wince-worthy hour of 4 a.m. for ESPN remote broadcasts featuring local celebrity and soccer hooligan John Barr.
