FIFA 2022WORLD CUP 2022 – ENGLAND v. USA: TWO PLACES TO WATCH – FRIDAY NOVEMBER 25th, 11am kickoff! We have it from a very good source that the Island Brits will be descending upon Plate & Pint (Island Village Shopping Center on High School Road) for the “England vs US” match, while Sisters Cider House (just down the road on Hildebrand) will be hosting the “US vs England” match (and yeah, it’s the same game…). As Rob Avery, a British friend here on the island jokingly pondered, “Do I see soccer hooligans partying on Winslow over the win/loss…”

BAINBRIDGE BREWING will be offering $1 off pints of their Bainbridge American Lager and Nitro English Special Bitter for the game at the Brewery & Taproom on Winslow Way – come enjoy some delicious breakfast beer and a great match with your fellow supporters!
