DM-1 has been given an official time of 2:48am EST on March 2nd. I'd skip it if it were just another mundane flight, but I think I have to stay up for that one. :-)

FWIW, it'll be very similar to a normal Dragon mission in that it'll go up, dock with ISS, then come back down a few days later with a limited amount of cargo going each direction. The only major thing that's different is that the capsule itself is completely different. They'll obviously be testing all sorts of stuff to make sure all would be well if there were humans on board.

Look for the show "Mars" by National Geographic. Included with Season 2 is a documentary called "Inside SpaceX". It's ~45 minutes and definitely worth the watch. Some amazing footage.

Definitely going to stay up for this. No plans that Saturday so far! Some additional details with scheduling and links to coverage...

Cool! Is that the Dragon 2 Cargo variant, or the Crew variant?

As far as I know, there's no difference other than the presence of seats vs. shelves. Could be wrong though.
