Well, all those guys from across the globe are going to be running around kicking a ball soon. Pretty exciting.

And other guys are pitching balls, catching balls, hitting balls...

In short, you’re going to need some 80-inch screens and a lot of beer in ice-filled bathtubs ASAP.

You’re going to need San Francisco Athletic Club, an impressively thorough new sports bar for all your World Cup, Giants and beer-in-bathtub needs, slated to open Thursday.

This place is from Corner Store and Kezar Pub vets, so you’ll know you’re in good hands even before you get inside. Even before you see the 28 big-screens (including two 80-inchers). Even before you see the bar top that used to be a basketball court... and even before you see the actual bleachers in back that’ll be pulled out for big games.

Once you’ve seen all that, then you can focus on what’s really important. Twelve good beers on tap (some wine, too) and at least 15 by the bottle. Get ’em in a bucket. Get ’em in a little ice-filled bathtub, served booth-side. During commercial breaks, consider mezcal margaritas, four kinds of fries, four kinds of wings and one kind of chili dog.

It’s the right kind.
