• The Redskins themselves are throwing a party at FedEx Field, offering free admission to the Club Level suites and showing the draft on the stadium’s jumbo high-definition video boards. Gates open at 6 p.m. The only caveat: You must register in advance through Redskins.com if you want to attend.

• ESPN 980 radio will be broadcasting live from Union Pub on Captiol Hill, even though that bar is a diehard Chicago Bears bar during the NFL season. The Sports Reporters show will broadcast live from 4 to 7 p.m., followed by Doc Walker and Scott Jackson live from 7 to 9 p.m. Look out for Redskins cheerleaders and beer specials all night.

• Ivan Carter of Comcast SportsNet’s “Sports Talk Live” hosts a draft viewing party and NFL Q&A session at BlackFinn Bethesda beginning at 7 p.m. Food and drink specials will be offered until 9 p.m.

• Fan site Hogs Haven , the Ball Hogs internet radio show and Capitol Hill blog Cloture Club are teaming up for an event at Rocket Bar, with special guests and drink specials. There’s a $5 cover charge, but proceeds will be donated to the Muscular Dystrophy Association/

We’ll update this post as we hear about more places to catch RG3 fever.
