The Civic Center big screen is getting rolled out again Wednesday night, with all of SF invited to come out and watch the Golden State Warriors win Game Three of the NBA Finals.
According to a press release sent by Mayor Ed Lee, "a jumbotron screen will broadcast Game Three of the NBA Finals in front of San Francisco City Hall" beginning at 6 p.m. PT.
"With the support of Dub Nation, the Warriors have taken a commanding 2-0 lead at Oracle Arena," Lee said via statement. "To keep up the momentum we're creating a Dub Nation opportunity in front of San Francisco City Hall for families and fans to cheer on our team as they head to Cleveland for Game Three. Home or away, Warrior fans will be cheering on our team all the way to the NBA Championship."
To keep the home fires burning, Lee says that "the Warriors flag will continue to fly over City Hall. City Hall, Coit Tower and San Francisco International Airport will remain lit in Warriors colors for the duration of the NBA Finals."
As you likely know, the Warriors are 2-0 in the series thus far, besting the Cleveland Cavaliers at both home games.
Attendees are encouraged to arrive early to secure a spot and to ride public transit to the event. They are discouraged from getting hammered, however, as "In keeping with the event focus on families, alcohol will not be sold or permitted on Civic Center Plaza during the broadcast." To ensure that rule is followed, officers with the San Francisco Police Department as well as Recreation and Park Department staffers "will be on hand to monitor and enforce a zero tolerance policy for alcohol and other controlled substances in Civic Center Plaza."
