Use Google Maps to Find World Cup Viewing Venues

Google Maps has added a new Layer which allows you to locate World Cup viewing parties throughout your city.  All you need to do is open up Maps, go into Layers, then “More Layers” and you should see the option to “Watch the World Cup.”  Select it, zoom out on your map a little and wait for the soccer balls to appear.

We love you Google.

    Just got back from Chicago and found out how valueable Google maps can be.

    This would be awesome for UFC fights! When I am traveling it is a pain calling around to find a bar that has them.

    Does anyone know if the update for Google Maps has fixed the problem with multi-touch zoom and a few other problems it was having a couple of weeks ago?

    if you think this is cool check out the app world droid cup, it does that too, but I think it's an awesome app for the WC! it gives you all the info you need.
