Excited about the NBA draft lottery? I'm a basketball fan, but I'm not really that excited to watch what's essentially the pro basketball version of recently-canceled The Big Spin.
But if you are a Kings fan and want to see whether the Kings will get to draft John Wall or Evan Turner, Maloof Sports Entertainment is throwing a block party on 18th Street between L & Capitol streets. They'll have the game on a jumbo TV, VIP guests, prize giveaways and the Royal Court Dancers. Party starts at 4 p.m. and the NBA draft will start at 4:30 p.m.
The Kings are also giving away a prize to every 10th person who uses Foursquare to check into the party. No word on what the prize is, but more details at the Sac Biz Journal.
However, there is on thing I am excited about. As part of the festivities, L Wine Lounge is having a promotion tonight where if you wear a Kings shirt, you save 20 percent off your dinner bill.
