Rats. I forgot to mark it here on Slog.
Last year, I was in Boston for the big day, and I got to go to a reenactment—and stand outside in the sub zero weather— and drink tea and eat cookies in the custom house after the big show with the actors.
Afterward, high on tea and cookies, I took the T across town.
