OKLAHOMA CITY -- With Thunder Alley shutting down at the tip-off, one local group is hoping to keep the party alive.
The group plans to hold an outdoor watch party in Bricktown at the corner of Reno and California.
The event will include a live band and DJ with the game shown on the big screen.
Learning a lesson from Thunder Alley, planners said they will have plenty of security on hand.
"The primary goal is safety and making sure everyone feels comfortable and secure," event planner Ushindi Spears said.
The watch party will be free and open to the public.
