Going to Chuck Brown’s Funeral? Get There Early
If you're going to Chuck Brown's funeral tomorrow at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, get there early.
An advisory from Mayor Vince Gray's office just went out, with this warning highlighted in yellow text:
**DOORS OPEN TO PUBLIC AT 10:00 A.M.; SERVICE WILL BE CLOSED TO PUBLIC WHEN CAPACITY CROWD OF 14,500 IS REACHED
Officials also suggest taking Metro to the convention center. If you do get shut out, check here for streaming video coverage of the ceremony, assuming the D.C. government cable feed works as planned.
