Slainte Irish Pub & Restaurant
"Slainte Irish Pub and Restaurant, Where Soccer is Religion" is this Fells Point pub's official motto, so you can bet it will be devoutly showing every World Cup match on at least on one of its 18 HDTVs. During the World Cup, Slainte will be featuring special menu items like Brazilian hot wings and bolinhos de arroz, fried rice fritters served with a chipotle sauce. All the matches will be shown with sound on, and the bar will run beer and cocktail specials throughout the World Cup, including $14 Heineken buckets and $5 Leblon Cachaca cocktails.

By Degrees Cafe in Harbor East has a unique offer for World Cup enthusiasts.
Groups of six can "rent out" six seats at the cafe's bar for World Cup games. For $110, the group gets prime seats for their chosen game, and each person in the group gets a choice of sandwich and dessert and a beer, cocktail or soft drink.
If the team your group is rooting for wins, the house will buy you a congratulatory round.
By Degrees is taking reservations for groups of six on a first-come, first-served basis, said Omar Semidey, the cafe's chef and general manager.
Most games televised during the cafe's operating hours will be available, and Semidely said the cafe will not double-book times when there are overlapping games.
The offer starts on Thursday, with the opening match between Brazil and Croatia, and continues through the final on July 13.
By Degree Cafe is at 415 S. Central Ave. in Harbor East. For information call 410-522-0478 or go bydegreescafe.com.
