If you don’t have tickets to tonight’s Stanley Cup Final game, no worries. The Blues and the NHL have you covered with a massive watch party that’s expected to draw quite the crowd to downtown. If you’re driving down, thoughts and prayers for parking. The fun starts at 3, and I would strongly suggest getting here well before that. The Blues have a map up on their official site for tonight; there is a rideshare dropoff area on 13th Street and Olive.
Market St. is closed at 15th back to Tucker Boulevard back to Pine, so plan your arrivals accordingly. The easiest way down is probably MetroLink.
Another thing to take a look at if you’re going downtown is the weather. It should be fine for the Echosmith (I don’t know either) concert, but starting at about six I’d bust out an umbrella or poncho. Or just find shelter. Between five and 10 tonight there’s a chance for some strong storms. The Weather Channel has the odds at 30%, but KSDK is calling for end of days level storms.
Scattered strong/severe storms to develop by Sat afternoon & continue thru the evening hours. Main threats are damaging winds in excess of 60 mph & large hail up to golfball size. #stlwx #mowx #ilwx pic.twitter.com/8Zvs00NGog— NWS St. Louis (@NWSStLouis) May 31, 2019
If you’re not in Enterprise Center tonight, stay safe, stay dry, and enjoy the watch party, weather permitting.
