Magic to host Draft watch party at Amway Center

The Orlando Magic will host an NBA Draft party at the Magic Grill at Amway Center next Thursday to coincide with the NBA Draft next week. Yes, the NBA Draft is next week (it kind of snuck up on you didn't it?).

The Draft party will include appearances from Stuff, the Fox Sports Florida Girls, the Southwest Airlines Flight Crew and a live broadcast of the festivities from 740 AM The Game. The radio broadcast will include interviews with Magic players and personalities in attendance. In addition there will be drink and food specials at Magic Grill and a 30 percent discount on all merchandise at the Magic Team Shop (which will be open until 8:30 p.m.).

The event is free and open to the public. However, guests can RSVP online at and receive an additional 10 percent off their food and drink orders. No RSVP is required to attend however.

The Magic will also have special ticket offers for the 2013-14 season. Fans in attendance who purchase season tickets for the 2013-14 season will receive an autographed jersey from the Magic's second overall pick and fans who purchase season tickets in the lower bowl will get the opportunity to meet the pick at a future date.

The Magic Grill is located inside Amway Center on the Event Level inside the Disney Atrium.

The NBA Draft Party kicks off at 6 p.m. Coverage for the NBA Draft begins at 7 p.m. on ESPN with the NBA Draft beginning at 7:30 p.m. on ESPN. The Magic should pick around 7:40-7:45 p.m. if they keep the second pick, that is.

I am planning on being at Amway Center in one way or another next Thursday. Hope to see everyone there!
