While not a crazy sports fan, I do absolutely love fútbol (Read: soccer) as I spent a good bit of my life in Argentina and Spain. So, I’m pretty stoked that new 14th Street spot Drafting Table is debuting a Fútbol Weekend Brunch today. (Becca reviewed brunch and gave it a B-.) You’ll be able to watch your favorite European fútbol teams on the restaurant’s three flat screen TVs while enjoying an eclectic brunch menu. The festivities begin Saturday at 8 a.m. with West Ham United vs. Chelsea followed by Arsenal vs. Swansea City and Tottenham Hotspur vs. Fulham at 10 a.m. Best of all, brunchers who come in for breakfast on December 1 from 9-11 a.m. will snag a free Sexy Egg Sandwich. Drafting Tale will serve $5 Bloody Marys all day. Fútbol brunch takes place Saturdays and Sundays. Even if you don’t like fútbol, seems like a good spot to pick up a European fútbol fan, now doesn’t it, ladies? 1529 14th Street, NW, Washington, D.C. (202) 621-7475
