JACKSON HEIGHTS, Queens (PIX11)-- Soccer fans at one of the most diverse zip codes in the world will have plenty of great venues to watch the World Cup.
Wine Garden Cafe, known for its Spanish/Basque food style and Tapas bar, is one place you can try, in Jackson Heights, Queens. They’ll have drinks, meal combos and show all the games.
Some customers at the cafe are already filing in their predictions for the Cup.
Jose “Pepe” Aguera, a retired restaurant owner of 32 years, puts his faith on his home country and current World Cup champion, Spain.
“I want them to win but I know it’s difficult,” he said while sipping on his beer. “Play good and have a little bit of luck and we can win this year.”
Orlando from Argentina, who works in construction, was chowing down a delicious steak on Wednesday afternoon.
“Argentina will end up first or second,” he said without hesitation. “If not us then Uruguay.”
He also said Real Madrid star Gonzalo Higuain and Barcelona stud Leo Messi will each score three goals throughout the duration of the World Cup.
Retiree William King, who used to be involved in commercial and real estate fields, has his clouds of doubt over the U.S. team.
“I think we have a long way to with world leaders [in soccer],” he said.
