And most of you futbol (soccer) fans, and those willing to rise up early to watch the World Cup games, already have your spot sought out to watch the upcoming match of France vs Mexico this Thursday the 17th. Gladly, this game is not one of the earlier games so some may have the chance to sleep in a little before the game while others rise up early regardless.

The game is at 11:30 AM, which is a great time for brunch, and anyone wanting to go somewhere to watch the game should head on over to La Guelaguetza Whether you wish to have breakfast or lunch while watching the game La Guelaguetza is the place to be at this Thursday.

I, along with some friends, went last Friday for the opening game of Mexico vs South Africa and the place was packed. There were people everywhere...standing, siting, drinking, eating and cheering as they watched the game on the restaurant's 150" screen. Shots of Real Mexicano were passed around freely by Bricia, horns were blowing, Mexican flags were being waved around or worn as capes by fans dressed in luchador masks, sombreros, team jerseys and Mexican gear.
