I was in Boston recently and found out about their ID policy. If you are under 26 and have an out of state ID, they may deny you that alcoholic drink. If you are 26 to 31 and you only have your out of state ID ( no credit card) at the bar, they may deny you that beer. I am in my 30s and I was quized about my ID at the Garden.
So..... If you are planning on going to Boston and you are 25, some bars will deny you entrance or a drink at a restuerant.
I guess Boston bartenders- bouncers are too stupid to figure out fake IDs from other states. I know that in my state, I have to bring in my birth certificate when my license expires. They call it a secure ID. I guess Boston wouldn't accept this either if I was under 26.
