There are only four games left in the World Cup, and the planet's best teams have risen to the top. Five-time winners Brazil face three-time winners Germany today at 4 p.m. with a space in Sunday's final at stake. Even if you don't support one of the two sides, this should be an excellent game of soccer – even with Brazil missing top scorer Neymar and captain Thiago Silva.

Brazil's fans will pack the Grill From Ipanema, Lucky Bar and Cafe Citron (among other venues) for food and drink specials.

German supporters be found at Biergarten Haus and Dacha Beer Garden, or in the theater at the Goethe-Institut. There are some addition options today: Doner Bistro has $4 Warsteiner beer and $5 bratwurst sandwiches, and is giving away special World Cup glassware while supplies last. (You just have to say "Ich liebe Fussball und Warsteiner" when you order.) In Bethesda, the Piazza Beer Garden is giving all fans free soft pretzel with a beer order. The patio at Cesco Osteria has TVs visible from most tables, but will also be showing the game and offering deals inside if you need to escape the heat.
