The FIFA Women's World Cup, which kicks off Saturday in Canada, doesn't get as much global hype as the men's event, but that shouldn't be the case from an American perspective. The U.S. women are one of the best teams on the planet, and unlike the men, they have a chance to actually win the tournament. If you're planning on watching, why not join a large group of other soccer-crazed Atlantans? Here now, check out 13 local bars that will be all in for a month of the beautiful game.

Winter in Atlanta is special. For a handful of weeks out of the year, Atlantans can actually experience what cold weather is like, and sometimes we even experience a bit of snow—and the city-wide disbelief and chaos that almost always ensues.

Zinburger probably isn’t the first place I would think of when dining in the Buckhead area. But, when an invitation is extended to dine on lots of burgers, milkshakes, and pies, well, I can’t turn that down! I’m always a bit skeptical of chains but I was pleasantly surprised with Zinburger. We started with a refreshing sangria, cheekily called the “Zingria,” and before we knew it we were being showered with appetizers and burgers.
