Last year’s pub quiz was a raging success. This year… we will go one better. 7.30pm KO next Wednesday (25th) at the Isle of Skye Pub, 488 Driggs Ave @ N 9th St. One block from Bedford Avenue L train in the heart of hipster Williamsburg.

Game on at 3.05pm at the usual venue, the Football Factory at Legends, W 33rd b/w 5th and Broadway.
Let’s hope Scotland play like this:
While the USA show up like this:
Live at the Football Factory @ Legends, W 33rd b/w 5th and Broadway.

Wednesday’s game will be shown live in the Football Factory at Legends, W 33rd b/w 5th and Broadway. 3pm KO.
Brooklyneers, it’ll also be on at your borough’s two Scottish pubs: Isle of Skye (Williamsburg, Driggs b/w N 9th and N 10th) and the recently-opened Duke of Montrose (Park Slope, 5th Avenue & Bergen St). I’m told Brooklyn is in the same time zone as Manhattan so that would also make it a 3pm KO.
Who remembers this? I know I do.
Croatia v Scotland will be live in the Football Factory at Legends, with a 2.15pm kickoff this Friday (7th). Sorry I forgot to post this earlier!

Salt-n-Vinegar v Salt-n-Sauce. Weegies v Watsonians. Airdrieonians v Aberdonians. Honest Men v Fifers.
Yes, battle lines have been drawn for the 2013 ScotBarNY Cup. It’ll be that eternal Scottish battle, West v East, played out on the hallowed soccer fields of Williamsburg.
And this year there’s more than pride at stake.
This match is the first trial for potential Scottish superstars to strut their stuff and get in the NYC Scotland squad for the Cosmos Copa, New York’s own soccer World Cup – organized by the famous New York Cosmos of Pele, Beckenbauer, and Chinaglia fame.
Turn up for a cracking match of football, and of course drinks afterward in a nearby hostelry.
