WorldCupFilter: Where can I watch the 7am PDT games in San Francisco?

Some information searching has turned up this but I think both Farolito and Steps of Rome, as colorful as they both are in their own way, will be too small and crowded.

Are there any other lesser-known places/bars that are opening up early for the 7am matches. Mission district would be ideal. I'm particularly thinking about the Portugal-Mexico game here...

I'm pretty sure I saw a sign outside the Napper Tandy on 24th & ? (Alabama or so? a few blocks east of Mission) that they were showing every game. And I would assume that nearly every food venue, if not bars, will be open for the Mexico game. Service might be terrible.

The Pig and Whistle (Geary) and Mad Dog in the Fog (Haight) are both known doing all manner of World Cup madness.

Elixir, on Guerrero at 16th, is advertising breakfast and World Cup soccer, so I assume they're open that early (and they usually have a great Bloody Mary bar!).

that looks great occhiblu! There's more info on this elixir page.

I'll probably walk around the mission too today or tomorrow and post here if i find other places. I'm going to be going out for 7am games this week:

tuesday: Ecuador-germany!
wednesday: portugal-mexico!
thursday: czech-italy! (sorry united states)
friday: spain-saudi arabia

Thanks so far! Keep them coming!

I just finished watching the Spain / Tunisia game at the Irish Bank down in the Financial District. They open at 7am Tuesday-Thursday, not sure other days. 2 nice projection TVs, one in each room.

The pub on the corner of my street The Liberties- 22nd and Guerrero is showing all the games. They also have a full kitchen.

The place that used to be Dylan's - Folsom and 19thish? - has a sign out front that they are showing all the games. Haven't been there since they changed owners. I think it's called The Homestead.

Mad Dog in the Fog serves a fantastic traditional English breakfast and is open for all matches - Haight and Filmore. Saw Mexico - Iran there last weekend and it was full without being crowded.

In case anyone is reading...

The Liberties was closed. Farolito was closed (but they will be open for the Mexico game tomorrow) Napper Tandy had a sign out front that said theywere open but they looked very closed - didnt stop to check.

Elixir was open. I watched much of the Ger-Ecu game there this morning. Too early to get drunk but they were making coffee.

Didn't make it up to the Mad Dog but may do so tomorrow.
