You read that right. There is going to be a Google I/O Extended viewing party at the main Moscone Center right next to Moscone West where Google I/O is. The I/O Extended event is part of a larger Developer Jam event at the main Moscone Center. For more info about that full 2 day Developer Jam event, see this page:
There are still about 250 free tickets available for the Google I/O Extended viewing party on day 1 of Developer Jam. Even if you miss out on one of the free tickets, there are additional tickets priced in the $5-$10 range. The sooner you sign up, the less it will cost you. You can register here:
Here is a personal message from Mike Sherman at Engage Digital, the organizers of Developer Jam, for the members of the Silicon Valley GTUG:

Your members who could not score tickets to Google I/O Live are welcome to join us across the street. Details are below. This has the potential to be a huge gathering across the street from I/O Live as we have 90,000 sq ft available in Moscone South.
