Now that the 2014 World Cup final is set, it’s time to make plans to watch Germany face off against Argentina on Sunday.

With the time difference from Brazil, soccer fans in Hawaii have had to get up relatively early to enjoy the matches on television. Sunday will be no different, with play set to begin around 9 a.m. here.

Looking to get out of the house and watch the big game? Here are a few viewing parties that have already been announced.

Know of other viewing parties? Leave a comment below with the details!

Tropics Tap House

The Puck’s Alley sports bar has attracted pretty big crowds throughout this year’s World Cup, and Sunday should be no different. Be sure to arrive close to the bar’s 8 a.m. opening to secure the best seats.

Along with the action on TV, Tropics will be going full bore in the kitchen with a variety of breakfast specials. You’ll also be able to order a Bloody Mary at the bar along with the dozens of craft beers normally served here.

1019 University Ave. Call (808) 955-5088.

Bar 35

Parking is free in Chinatown on Sundays, which makes Bar 35 a good option for beer fans who don’t want to head towards UH-Manoa. Happy hour will be in effect from 9 a.m. to noon, with a special breakfast buffet option available for $10.

35 N Hotel St. Call (808) 537-3535.

Fresh Cafe Downtown

Join Paradise Soccer Club and the Major Island Soccer Organization for a viewing party at Chinatown’s newest addition, Fresh Cafe. The former Indigo location will offer plenty of seating to go with food and drink specials from 8 a.m. to noon.

1111 Nuuanu Ave. Call (808) 953-7374.

The Fix

Looking to go big? Head to The Fix and watch the World Cup final match on a 40-foot screen. Doors open at 9 a.m. Sunday, with breakfast specials to go with $3 Pabst Blue Ribbon and $5 Patron tequila. Halftime prize giveaways are also planned.
