The FIFA Women’s World Cup is this weekend, and the world’s only sports bar dedicated solely to women’s sports is having a watch party!
The pre-game celebration gets underway Saturday night at the Sports Bra on NE Broadway. The game is being played in Australia, and because of the time difference, it’s on at 2 am here on the West Coast. There’s a 5k walk/run at the Sports Bra at midnight leading up to the match. There’s also free food, prizes, and games.
