The CATO Institute is hosting a public forum on the McDonald case. The forum is on Monday, March 1 at 4:00 PM at 1000 Massachusetts Ave. The featured speaker is Ilya Shapiro, a CATO fellow. Open to the public without charge. If you can make it, you should register here. You can also watch a live video podcast. Although it is at 4:00PM, the announcement says, "Reception To Follow"; that usually means the famous Milton Friedman Memorial Free Lunch.
Oral arguments at the Supreme Court are at 10:00 AM Tuesday, March 2. If you plan to attend, you should be in line no later than 1 AM, as seating is very limited.
On Wednesday, March 3, CATO is sponsoring a "Capitol Hill Briefing" on McDonald at 12 noon in room B-340 of the Rayburn House Office Building. Again, open to the public without charge but you should register here. Includes the famous Milton Friedman Memorial Free Lunch.
UPDATE: here's a USAToday profile of Otis McDonald.
