let’s play ball
The 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar is upon us. What is it exactly? It originated in 1930 and its it’s officially defined by online dictionaries as “The FIFA World Cup, often simply called the World Cup, is an international association football competition contested by the senior men’s national teams of the members of the Fédération Internationale de Football Association, the sport’s global governing body.”
The games kicked off Sunday, November 20 at 8 a.m. EST with Qatar playing its first ever World Cup game. Given the early games times for the Western Hemisphere, the need for game viewing, with communal coffee drinking, might surely be on your social activities menu.
Depending on your time zone, you might be looking for a coffee to go along with your watch habits, a little slow sipping as your adrenaline pumps with the black and white ball kicked by elite players from around the globe.
Here are three coffee shops along the West and East Coast that are planning to stream games while also showing you a good coffee time.
1.Good Time | Long Beach, CA
The Long Beach coffee shop is opening its doors for all 5 a.m. PST games and will be serving hot coffee and foods off the grill. Smells like good times ahead all around.
