NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The timing of this year’s World Cup could not be better for the thousands of New York City bars showing the games.
The World Cup begins Thursday in Brazil. Most of the games will have start times from noon to 6 p.m. New York time.
“The times work fantastically,” Pat Burke, owner of the Kent Ale House in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, told WCBS 880’s Marla Diamond. “A lot of the bigger games are a little later in the afternoon, which actually plays well into having a much bigger crowd for those games.”
