Not a problem; most pubs in Massachusetts will still admit under-21 folks.
They usually don't ask for ID unless you order alcohol.
My experience in the Boston pub scene, which is quite extensive, is that
under-21 folks will not be getting into any pubs on a Friday. The pubs
will be too busy, the carding will be done at the door.

Cool. Once we have some idea of numbers, I'll check around at a few nearby
places and make sure they wouldn't mind a large influx of geeks on a Friday
The last time I had an under-21 friend in town, a couple of years ago,
the only place that worked out was Jillians. It's a bit flashy, but a
side benefit for all attendees from out of town is that they can walk by
Fenway Park, which is right across the street.
