During the event, the Bostonian Society will introduce it's newest slate of Revolutionary Characters. The six brand new characters portrayed by live actor/historians will charm and delight as they share stories about life in Revolutionary Boston.
And if that weren't enough, we will also have a fabulous raffle. Each guest will be entered to win one of two baskets which will include: a signed poster of Brian Hoefling's book, to be released in October - a sampling of Taza Chocolate - a shot glass from the Old State House gift shop - a signed picture of one of our Revolutionary Characters - and two bottles of rum, one from each distillery.
Each guest will receive a total of four drink tickets to taste the rums and two mixed drinks.
