While many urbanites are heading out on the boat or retreating to the beach this 4th of July weekend, Sirio is getting the party going…in the city!

Sirio Ristorante’s savvy bar is the hot place to be this weekend, where the cocktails will be flowing and the 2014 World Cup elimination rounds will be streaming.  Sirio’s bartenders will be sporting their favorite team’s jersey.  Join in on the hype by showcasing your team spirit too!  Each time a team wins a game, bar guests and diners representing that country will be provided with a complimentary glass of Prosecco.

Kick back, relax and get to know Sirio’s two sexy specialty cocktails – Copa Marácuja & Copa Carioca:
