Having already checked out The Suya Spot and Harlem Underground as potential African World Cup Team watching spots, I decided to check out Yauca’s Lounge. After the closing of Chez La Belle Africaine, a hot spot for Cameroon fans for the 2010 world cup, I thought there might be some fans that would migrate to Dovercourt to check out the games. It wasn’t a fantastic turnout, but there were legitimate, if not jersey draped, fans of Cameroon. Turned out to be a pretty terrible game for Cameroon and a tough way to exit the World Cup. Still, really nice bar and the food looked great. I know I will be back.
