In 2010, A2 soccer fans took in their World Cup matches over breakfast and mimosas. This year’s World Cup, set to kick off on Wednesday at 4pm EST with a match between the host country Brazil and Croatia, offers a more beer-friendly schedule. Good luck getting any work done.

We’ve rounded up a few Ann Arbor hangouts that plan to show the matches and cater to the soccer crowds.

Connor O’Neil’s is the classic Ann Arbor soccer fan’s bar. With beers from around the world, you can match your drinking to the teams you’re watching—Estrella for Spain, Boddingtons for England, Peroni for Italy.

Tanager’s New Album ‘HZ Donut’: Premiering New Single “Tiny Galaxies”

The beautiful thing about the kinds of songs that Tanager make are how layered they are… These are guitars that envelop you, drums that pull you, melodic phrases that levitate you (and no, I’m not on drugs as I write this)… Those ethereal traits have always distinguished a Tanager song, a hybrid of coarse distortion

Have We Met?—The Dialogue Between Past and Present

It is heartrending to see that message, reverberated through the past and into the present. Cynics may be tempted to ask, “Have we really made any progress?”.
