Say you're a die-hard soccer fan who wants to watch the Galaxy when they're out of town, or even a particular foreign match. Unless you've got a super-amazing cable package, you're out of luck, because your local sports bar isn't likely to change the channel from golf. Fortunately, the folks out at Alpine Village have dedicated themselves to showing every possible match. (And, yes, that's the same Alpine Village where you celebrate Oktoberfest every year.) They show everything they can when they're open, and even extend their hours for high-profile matches. That means every elimination-round match, as well as every Germany and every Croatia match, no matter when they air. Finally, footie fans, safe harbor! 833 W. Torrance Blvd., Torrance. (310) 327-2483,
