My family went to Boston in early August. It was great visit except for one thing. My older son and I went to a Sox game, and decided we wanted something to eat after the game. He is only 18, so no one could let us in their restaurant to eat because it was after some arbitrary time (9 or 10). We had to go all the way back to the hotel and order subs to be delivered. Stupid…
