Who knew the best endorsement a downtown establishment could ask for would come from not the Dallas Cowboys but… Pittsburgh Steelers? Pete’s, the dueling piano bar upstairs from The Library bar at 6th & Houston, has been mentioned by name by a myriad of sports networks and news websites due to a surprise visit and serenade by Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger Tuesday.
It is no surprise that one of the three songs in heavy rotation at Pete’s Piano Bar on Houston & 6th, Piano Man (the other two being Brown Eyed Girl and Tiny Dancer, of course), are making national headlines as TMZ has released cell-phone video footage of Ben Roethlisberger and a few of his offensive linemen — who, as the AFC team are staying in downtown Fort Worth for this weekend’s Super Bowl — drunkedly merrily singing the Billy Joel classic Tuesday night. View the video here.

During what would have been a nice quiet morning meal of Chorizo breakfast tacos with miniature Coronita beers, the silence was shattered by an eruption of excitement from USA’s thrilling 92nd minute goal in their World Cup performance against Algeria. See the video here.
What is one to do when you want to catch some matches with a beer and some food, but the games air here in the morning because the World Cup is a half-a-world away? Embargo has a solution to this dilemma: Open at 8am! Starting tomorrow, you can watch the Mexico vs South Africa game (which airs at 9:30am) at Embargo with a Coronita in one hand, a breakfast taco in the other. No word on if red cards are given for bad behavior. We will be posting their breakfast menu details soon.
