With the launch of our Where are you Watching page yesterday, we realized it might be hard for you guys to find it so we thought we’d make a post so that you can click right to the right place! Our aim for this Where are you Watching page is to engage with our readers and really form a community of Taeguk Warriors around the world. If you are heading to Russia, we want to give you a forum to share your story and if you like, even share your pictures of the stadium as you cheer on the Reds! For those in the US, Korea, Europe, we want you as fans to have a chance to gather together and watch matches together! The Taeguk Warriors always fight and cheer harder as one!
Our aim is to gauge interest in meeting in bars/public parks for watch parties so that we at the Tavern can meet with our readers and enjoy the festival of the beautiful game together! The Tavern has writers in Chicago, NYC, Toronto, LA, Jeju, Australia, and Maryland so if you’re nearby, let’s find a place to watch together. If we see fans interested in different places in the city, we’ll make sure to take a poll so we can find the best place to watch. We’ll handle reaching out to owners of different bars if we’re expecting a big party. If there’s a public World Cup event in your city where there will be screens set up in a large park, please let us know so we can get out there and represent the Tavern! Our idea is to gather before kick-off, get the drums nice and loud, get those Daehanminguk chants flowing, and take your questions off of Twitter/Facebook live! Even if Korea loses, we want to have a great time with you all so get active in the comments and start finding places to watch together. One of the missions of the Tavern is to connect Korean football fans, and this is a great way to do this! There are three weeks to our first match in Nizny Novgorod, so get your plans together to party with the Tavern this summer!
Thought I’d post this video to give you an idea of what we’re thinking of creating here at the Tavern.
Stony brook Long island ny…. any fans in the area?. Or queens ?
Calling all Tavern readers in LA! Hoping to organize something here!
Will watch games against Sweden and Germany at home. May be able to join you for the Mexico game.
Anyone going to Russia?
I sincerely hope we’ll have pictures from Russia to share, would love to hear of someone traveling to Russia!
New Jersey anyone? Fort Lee, Pal Park area?
I’m seeing some NY/NJ interest, hopefully one of our writers Kevin can put something together in that area!
New jersey here too. Going to watch the Mexico/Korea game at a bar called crown in pal park. A lot of us are going. Anyone in the area should come through
Chicago people, I have been doing some research and come up with two options that could work. Fado Irish Pub is booking group parties for all matches, so we can go that route. Another option is The Shelby in Humboldt Park, a bar where I’ve watched EPL so I imagine they will also show the World Cup!
LA has got to be doing a viewing party like we did in 2010 and 2015 right? Anyone have any leads on that?
We will get back to you on that! Stay tuned!
Bay Area/SF anyone?
East Bay represent!
DC! Will likely watch at work though… games are too early in the U.S.
How the heck are people on the West Coast gonna have a watch party? The games will be early morning hours. A little breakfast soju? 6 am so-maek?
Hey Jon, the Old Tavern Owner is in the DC area. I’ll let him know he should get something together! In terms of LA, Jinseok is a diehard fan. He’s not afraid to stay up all night for the Taeguk Warriors!
I’m in Manhattan as well
