Okay, okay, no one mentioned the FA Cup, how was I supposed to know that British/Irish pubs were out. Another round of googling on beer gardens instead is my absolutely last try, take it or leave it. (And I draw the line at Cardiff, sorry.)
It's not clear whether any of these show soccer, much less the Stuttgart game, but again, you could phone. The menus at least look promising. (-:

(29-19 24th Avenue, Astoria, 718-274-4925). You can't go wrong with this big giant beer garden behind the historic Czech cultural center in Astoria.
Back in 2000, the New York Times profiled Bohemian Hall in A Beer Garden in Astoria Shelters a Lost Era.
The building features New York's last remaining beer garden, "a grove of about 20 old trees -- maples, sycamores and lindens -- enclosed by a high wall" with "the sheltering feel of an ancient European village, where the townspeople gather for beer and gossip." Bohemian Hall was built in 1930 as a cultural and community center for local Czechs.
(69-46 Myrtle Avenue between 69th and 70th Streets, Glendale, 718-386-3014), which of course caters to Germanshttp://nycslav.blogspot.com/search/label/bohe...
