OT - European soccer fans in NYC..help!

For those of you that are European soccer fans, I need a little help! I'm from Montreal and this weekend I will be in New York City for 3 days and since qualification games for Euro 2008 are going to be played this saturday I need to know a place where I can watch the games. Is there a place in NYC where they show these games?? I know ESPN Zone shows alot of sports but I don't know if they're big on soccer..specially during baseball playoffs. Anyway, if anybody can help I would appreciated very much!. Thanks!

Nevada Smith's is the most football-oriented bar in town, but it'll also probably be insanely crowded (which can be good or bad, depending on whether you get in), so make sure to go early.

Other options are Clancy's, another major football-bar, probably also packed:

The Red Lion, crowded, but perhaps slightly less so. Has decent food:
http://newyork.citysearch.com/profil.../red_lion.html

I'll probably be at Baker Street, because it's close to my apartment and my friend wants to go there to watch Greece vs. Norway (interesting note: this is the pub where Tom Cruise gets his start in Cocktail):

http://www.bakerstreetnyc.com/

They're all good bars and they all have good beer selections. There are a lot of other places to choose from as well, so you won't have major trouble finding the matches in New York. If you're looking for a more obscure match, you might have to dig, but you'll find it!

I hear Nevada Smith's is awsome, but you have to show up early.

From JFK to MSG

Hi guys, Im a Finnish fan coming to NY and have booked a ticket to Nashville game on Oct 18. My plane will arrive at 4 pm (JFK) and Id like to ask whats my best shot not to be late for the game? Im guessing I might be through all immigration formalities at around 5 - 5.30 so it doesnt leave me too much time to check-in the hotel (Pennsylvania) and to get my ticket at Will Call.

So do you recommend a taxi or train? Time is a relevant factor here, not price. I want to be in the MSG as early as possible. (Well, lets forget about the helicopter anyway)

Also, if anyone is willing to have a beer or two after the game, please let me know

Thanks in advance.

You can get the air-train from outside the terminal to Howard Beach subway station - they go every few minutes, and then, you can get the A train right to MSG/Penn Station (and close to Pennsylvania hotel). And again, they are very regular, so you wouldn't have to wait long. That could actually quicker than a taxi! Cos of course, you wont be stuck in rush-hour traffic. Thats how I always get from Kennedy Airport to mid-town, but I've never really timed it, cos I'm usually in no great rush so I can't help you with times! But I know it isn't that long a trip, maybe 40 mins . And a taxi can take a long time depending on traffic.

I've been stuck in a taxi on the way too Kennedy in traffic once and it took so long I thought I'd miss the flight.

By the way - make sure you are sat near the exit on your plane, then you can get to immigration first at the airport It takes forever with them fingerprinting and photographing everyone.

Hey guys. Will be driving through Maryland, Pennsylania etc in a couple of weeks, and thought that taking in a game at historic MSG might be a good idea, never having been there before.

So that means, tickets, hotel, and parking. Tickets seem to be available, so one down. Hotel I can priceline etc, not too worried about that.

Now parking, that's an issue from what I gather. It's not like we can just park at the game like in most places. Even parking at hotels seems to be iffy.

What's the general advice on parking? We'd be arriving mid-day the 24th, parking for two nights, go to the game on the 25th, then leave the morning of the 26th.

there are lots everywhere, but they are expensive. For an all-day thing, such as in by 10am out by midnight it is about $25, not sure what they charge for overnight. Check with your hotel, they often have deals with local Kinney parking lots.

This is late also, but the best record store in NYC is Generation Records in the village. Decent prices and a great selection.

The record area in the basement has a ton of stuff.

Oh, also for people visiting the area who want to go to a good record store:

Don't really bother with anything in the city outside of Hospital Records (hard to find and very small -- but an incredible selection of noise and black metal).

The BEST place to go is Vintage Vinyl in Fords, New Jersey if you have a car with you. Nothing is even remotely close. The place is one of the best independant music stores in the entire COUNTRY. It ranks up there with Amoeba in CA.

Fantastic store with a great staff running it.

On the Island, we have Looney Tunes on the borderline of my old town, Lindenhurst, and West Babylon.

Unreal.

Got two OUT OF PRINT albums there... Metallica's "Kill Em All" and "...And Justice For All" with the two extra tracks, "Am I Evil" and "Blitzkrieg" on Kill Em All, and "Breadfan" and "The Prince" on And Justice For All for $25 a piece. The extra tracks were added in 1988, and went out of print in 1992. I got them in 98 right before "Garage Inc." came out.

Also got the "Garage Days '87" ep from them with those four songs on it for $10.

They've got the gold collectors albums and stuff signed by the bands and everything. Small place, but GREAT selection, especially if you're into local bands, hardcore, punk, death metal, black metal, industrial, etc... stuff that you won't find in your average music store.

a walk up or down Bleecker street is worth doing. Also make sure to pass through washington square park on your way east to saint marks.

I would eat at mamouns or john's pizza and stop in at Rocco's for great italian pastry. All near Father Demo square.

If you go to Little Italy I would suggest you eat at Angelo's.

On the lower east side I am partial to Leshko's but the old Kiev was outstanding. I wonder if either of those places are still open.

All the Czechs (and all Czechs hockey players visiting town) head to Astoria, Queens to eat at Zlata Praha. It's a great restaurant, by the way.
