What?! What?! I DEFINITELY second that request. I have CHS syndrome, even with hearing aids.

If nobody is adverse to craft beer, we could go back to the place in Rochester Park where we went when Mi Amigo was here a while back. It's quiet enough. But it is a bit of a pain to get into and out of short of hoofing it a fair distance. But I'm open to other suggestions as well, due to iffy knees.

That Russian brewery? I second that. Although I can't make it. Have to leave early for a flight that evening. :-(

Count me in for this one. For location, how about trying Joo Chiat/ East Coast Rd. Beer is reasonably priced, have a few places with craft beer, and its easy access.

The problem is, I think every bar will be showing the WC. I was going to suggest TAP at either Robertson Quay or more centrally, Capitol Theatre (next to City Hall MRT.) Great range of beers (around $10 an American "pint" - which isn't of course a pint) and their spam fries are sinfully good. I don't think the TAP in Capitol Theatre has a TV screen so it should be soccer-free.

You are right. Even Beerfest (the one where SMS and Mi Amigo went) might install a giant screen for WC, considering that Mother Russia is hosting and Beerfest is a Russian establishment. It usually doesn't have a telly, only beer and food in the middle of park but this exception might apply.
