District 6: This ‘pub brewery kitchen’ has rustled up a ‘Chef’s Special’ menu. Choose from its malt-based pepperoni and chicken sausage pizza, or the pulled ghost chicken stromboli. Veggie lovers can bite into a double pepper pizza, and a pesto rosso pizza. Don’t forget to try the ‘District 6 Buckets’ range of appetisers — chicken nuremberger mini sausages, Sicilian chicken and cilantro pesto-flavoured
baby potatoes. Wash it all down with tap beers, including The District Lager and The District Wheat. Rs 1,800++ (for two). At Malleswaram. Details: 7259906666
Underdoggs Sports Bar and Grill: Here, gorge on a vada pav, or order wontons, rolls, and deviled eggs from the menu, aptly titled ‘Stadium Bites’. The sports bar will be decked like a stadium, with flags of the final teams all over, staff sporting the jersey of the Indian team, and even tricolour wigs. Merchandise such as key chains and mugs will also be given away. Predict the man of the match, highest wicket-taker, or scorer, and you can win prizes as well. Rs 75 upwards. At JP Nagar.
