HARTFORD HOOLIGANS: We mean that headline in the best possible way. It's time for all you futbol fans to come out of hiding, strap on your shinguards, and brace for the inevitable red card. The World Cup countdown is underway, and with a USA vs. Czech Republic tune-up game happening at the Rent tomorrow night, it's time for all us Nutmeggers to get psyched! And what better way to do that, than with a Pub Crawl. Don you favorite team USA gear and join the American Outlaws Hartford Chapter in downtown Hartford for some fun and frivolity (plus some great drink deals). The evening starts at Vaughan's, shifts to Koji, the Asylum Café, Mayor Mike's before finishing at Pigs Eye Pub. The crawl runs from 7 p.m.-1 a.m. Don't forget to pace yourself.
THE BEAT GOES ON: Head down to Mohegan tonight to once again be drawn back into the past, while looking ahead to the future. The Bronx Wanderers will delight you with songs of yesteryear, from Doo-Wop to Dion and The Four Seasons. But at the same time, they keep their sound fresh and modern. The Bronx Wanderers will play a pair of free shows in the Wolf Den at noon and 7 p.m.
PACK YOUR DINNER KNIVES AND GO: You know him and love him as the no-nonsense head judge on Bravo's Top Chef (which is about to start a new season in Washington, D.C.).

For just $45, you can choose from a menu that features entrees like salmon of filet mignon. The dinner bell will be ringing from 5 p.m.-10 p.m.
