This has been so confusing- first the Mystics game was moved up to 4 pm to make room for the Caps viewing party. Then we heard Caps fans were buying tickets for crazy prices because Capital One Arena was going to let fans stay inside after the Mystics game.
Then word came that the Mystics game would be free and the Arena open with refunds to everyone who had tickets.
We kept asking and kept getting the silent treatment. People who worked at The Vault couldn’t even get an answer. Media types were clueless as to what was going on.
Finally we have the official word.
Don’t forget that there will be plenty of restaurants and bars around Chinatown and Penn Quarter airing the game. Sit in their bars. Buy food and drink. And then pour out to the streets to celebrate when the Caps seal the deal!!
