Uber
How do you use uber to get your food? And I'm not a rav, but I imagine if its fleishig then it would need to be wrapped with 2 simanim.

Here's how I do it. I'm sure each person has slight variation.
1. Call the restaurant.
2. Tell them you want to do an order for take-out.
3. Tell them that you want to have your Uber driver pick up your food for you -- ask if they can bring it to the curb where the driver will be waiting.
4. You order the food from the restaurant by phone and pay for it with credit card.
5. You open the Uber app and set the pick up address to the restaurant.
6. On the Uber app, set the destination address to wherever you are and want the food delivered.
7. Once Uber says that they are on the way to pick you up, you call the Uber driver and tell him that you are actually asking him to pick up a food order at Rubin's (or wherever) and that the Restaurant staff will bring the food out to him at the curb, and then he will deliver the package to you.
8. Depending on how comfortable the driver and the restaurant seem with this plan, you may be all done. Sometimes, I give the driver the restaurant number to call when he arrives.  Sometimes I call the restaurant and tell them who the driver is and what his ETA is.
9. Once the driver picks up the food, he delivers it to you, and then you enjoy.

Sox tickets are minimum $45 for Wednesday.  Is this normal?
Assuming you want a seat, tickets are even higher now on most websites. If you havent gotten tickets yet the red sox just released some tickets on their website - there are 2 tickets in the grandstand available for $84 total (cheaper than you'll find on stubhub).

Perfect day for baseball at Fenway. David Ortiz is 0 for two in recent opportunities for walk off amazement. I think he may be due today! Stay hydrated, try to find shade, and have a great time.

So any of the restaurants in Boston offer something that I can't get in NYC?
Wondering if it's worth the stop in the few hours I have here
