Feeling a bit historical thanks to Classics Week? Keep it going for the next few months by heading over to the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum for one of their "Huzzah! Tavern Nights," taking place on February 5 and 19, March 5 and 19, and April 2. From 7 to 9 P.M. on each of those Thursdays, the museum will turn into, according to a press release, "an 18th-century tavern complete with live period music, rustic savory food and beverage amidst a host of important historical Boston residents including Paul Revere, John Hancock and Samuel Adams along with other colonial characters." There will also be era-appropriate games.
The featured beverage is a new limited edition beer from Harpoon, the Boston Tea Party Ale, created in collaboration with the museum. It's made with Souchong tea, a smoky black tea that was one of the five varieties dumped into the water during the Boston Tea Party.
Tickets for each event are $40 per person and include one glass of rum grog, wine, or beer; unlimited tea; and a buffet of chicken legs, breads, beef stew, vegetables, and more. Extra alcoholic beverages can be purchased separately. Call (617) 338-1773 to get a ticket, or head to the ticket booth at 306 Congress Street in Fort Point.
To prepare for the event, it may be a good idea to study up on Ben Franklin's list of synonyms for getting intoxicated.
