World Cup 2014: Where to watch Argentina vs. the Netherlands

We know Germany will be in the World Cup final. Now Argentina and the Netherlands will fight for the other spot in Sunday's big match. Here's where to watch this afternoon.

The blue and white jersey of La Albiceleste always dominates at El Patio, an Argentine restaurant in Rockville, though there have been strong Argentina crowds all over the area, including Del Campo, Cafe Citron and Lucky Bar.

Dutch fans take over the bar at Elephant and Castle on match days, creating lots of noise and a solid wall of bright orange jerseys, hats, scarves and even plush lions' tails. (It's very family friendly, and sometimes so crowded it's tough to get a drink.) But I've seen Holland jerseys all over the area during the World Cup, from Meridian Pint to Public Bar to Bracket Room.

If you're just looking for drink deals during the game, try Lou's City Bar (half-price draft beers), DC Reynolds (buy-one, get-one-free drinks) and Penn Social ($3 Bud Lights and the game on a 22-foot screen). Here are even more World Cup happy hour specials.
