Tavern and Tea Room Coming to Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum
The Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum is going to be opening once again on the city's waterfront, and it will feature a "publik house" that will offer food and drink.
Adam's Hospitality & Tourism Blog reports that the museum will be reopening on June 25, and included within it will be "The Tavern & Tea Room," which will serve muffins, scones, five types of tea that were dumped from the ships back in the 1700s, and possibly alcoholic beverages, based on information from a post by Eater Boston. The museum itself includes three restored tall ships, including The Beaver and Dartmouth (two whaleships) and Eleanor (a full rigged ship). Adam's Hospitality & Tourism Blog mentions that Dartmouth won't be opening until 2013.
The Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum site has been closed for more than 10 years, as back in 2001 it was heavily damaged due to a fire caused by a lightning strike.
