On Saturday, June 2, the Washington Capitals take on the Vegas Golden Knights in Game 3 of the 2018 Stanley Cup Final at Capital One Arena.

The game marks the first time in 20 years the Stanley Cup Final has taken place in Washington, D.C. 

If the city's response to the first two games in Vegas was any indication, the nation's capital will be party central.

Over 12,000 fans showed up for the Game 1 watch party at Capital One Arena and over 14,000 showed up for Game 2.

The ticket prices for Game 3 won't be cheap, but there are plenty of bars, restaurants, and clubs around D.C. that are airing the game on Saturday night.
