Tickets for U.S.-Portugal June 22.

First of all, huzzah! Thank you all for coming today to watch the U.S. beat Ghana 2-1. Now some details about watching the next match.

Because the U.S.-Portugal match on June 22 at 6 pm is going to be such a big event, we're selling tickets in advance for crowd control purposes. This way we can all have a bit of space to stretch out, and won't have to worry about being shoulder-to-shoulder and unable to enjoy the game properly. Your ticket will come with a free beer or well drink, and will cost $8 in order to pay for said drink and the extra staff we'll have on hand to make sure everyone gets good service. You can buy tickets starting immediately here at the bar; just ask your bartender. (The ticket doesn't mean you shouldn't tip your bartender for your drinks on the evening of the game!) You can also buy tickets at the door the day of the game, but we recommend buying them in advance to ensure you'll have space.

A couple clarifications: if you are coming and going earlier on Sunday, and won't be staying for the game, you don't need to worry about a ticket. On the other hand, for those of you who are coming later Sunday night for pub quiz, fear not: after 8 pm, we'll go back to normal, open to everybody at no cost. However, keep in mind that it may take some time for World Cup fans to clear out, so we'll probably be starting quiz later than usual to allow people to settle in. Be patient and we'll make it work.

We may or may not need to regulate admission to other U.S. games, and will keep you updated, but for now it's just the Portugal match. Any questions, just e-mail us. Go U.S.!

New cocktail!

In honor of being mentioned by Neil deGrasse Tyson as a bar to go to for astronomical events, we've invented a new cocktail in his honor. To wit:

Neil deGrasserac Tyson ($10): bourbon, Pernod, bitters, lemon peel, star anise.

It's heavenly. Here's how it looks:

Sixpoint NYC Beer Week Night February 27!

From the horse's mouth:

We are eminently (or imminently?) psyched for our mostly annual NYCBW Pacific Standard lots-of-taps event. The two Jo(h)ns, who started their Sixpoint fixation when they were roommates with a kegerator, a metrocard pass, and the old B77 bus line, have been proudly stocking our beer since they opened the Pacific Standard. For this night, we have specially-made custom Sixpoint/Pacific Standard mash-up pint glasses. Buy two Sixpoint beers and take the glass home. The beers will include Hi-Res, Gorilla Warfare, the Crisp, Seison, barrel-aged cask-conditioned Imperial Otis (!!!), and Spice of Life Sorachi Ace.
