"The 33"-Road Bike Racing - Where to watch Stage 3 TT in San Jose?

Where's a good spot to watch the Stage 3 Time Trial in San Jose tomorrow (Wednesday)? Will there be demo booths set up at the start and/or finish? Any big screen TVs or anything like that? I guess there will be an awards podium at the finish, eh?
Sorry, we're all new to this... my daughter and I rode out to watch Stage 2 in the east bay today, and now she's begging to see the TT tomorrow... :)

The best thing would be to bring your bikes and park your car somewhere not right next to the start or finish. I'm sure both places will have some cool things to see and you should be able to get to both on bikes. The start is cool cause you can hang right next to the team bus/motorhomes and watch the guys warmup and the finish is cool towards the end of the day when the top GC guys are going. Plus the expo will be at both this stage I think.
The climb up Bailey should be a good place to watch. Also, the stretch of McKean by the Cinnabar Hills GC is another uphill stretch. I'm going out with my daughter tomorrow. Drive down to the general area and ride our bikes to a nice viewing location.
Definitely taking the bike in the car -- if we could take our tandem on the bus from Fremont BART we'd leave the car at home, but we're not up for the roundtrip from Fremont BART to south SJ tomorrow.
Wish I could confirm for sure where the expo will be!
Thanks a bunch,

I'll be watching it from my couch courtesy of ESPN2 and my DVR, but good luck finding a good spot!
Ok, answering my own question ;) ...
