Welcome to World Cup Happy Hour. Every afternoon, we'll provide options for places to watch the day's 6 p.m. match. In the morning, we publish World Cup Lunch, which has suggestions for where to take a long lunch with the noon match of the day.
The last match on Friday's World Cup schedule features Ryan McGowan and Australia, the lowest-ranked team in the tournament, facing dark horses Chile.
Where to watch: Fans of the Socceroos have multiple options: The Australians in Washington Association, a social group for Aussie expats, is meeting at Fado in Chinatown. On U Street, Solly's, a neighborhood joint that made its name as a rugby bar, will welcome Australians for the World Cup. There's no central gathering place for Chile fans, but Cafe Citron has proved to be a good gathering spot for fans of the South American teams.
What to order: Fado has a list of $5 drinks, ranging from Heineken bottles and 16-ounce Budweisers to potent orange crushes. Solly's offers $3.50 PBR, Budweiser and Bud Light, $5.50 DC Brau cans and $5.50 Jim Beam and Svedka drinks from 3 to 8 p.m. Cafe Citron has $4 beers (including Spanish Mahou), $5 cachaca shots and $5 caipirinhas.
