A reader reports around 7am:

“Three hours before opening, the line is already around the building. Slightly embarrassed to say I am one of them… The good news is there is free food and drink for everyone!

Also, just found out the people next to me in line came all the way from Ohio just for this. They left late last night, arrived at 3 a.m., and slept in the car in a parking garage. Didn’t know it was such a thing, but I guess they have been to numerous openings around the country.”

Peek inside here and check out the planned festivities here.

Update from a reader – A Marching band has arrived:
