USA vs. Belgium kicks off at 3 p.m. today, and face it — productivity will likely be at an all-time low today. There's a massive watch party going on at AT&T Plaza in Victory Park — as well as one at AT&T Stadium in Arlington — but if that size crowd seems a little daunting, hide out in one of these 14 bars instead. The game will be on and the beer will be flowing; now all you have to do is make up an excuse for your boss.
