During his famous Midnight Ride, Revere alerted the countryside of the British military movements with shouts of “the Redcoats are coming!” In the early morning on April 19, 1775, Capt. John Parker led 77 local militiamen and faced arriving British troops. Someone — still unknown to this day — fired a shot, that provoked the start of the American Revolution.

To honor the 250th anniversary of this historic ride, guests enjoy a special four-course Colonial-themed feast created by Executive Chef Alissa Tsukakoshi paired with local area brews and spirits from 8 pm-11 pm in a communal dining setting in Town Meeting Bistro. As a nod to Paul Revere, a portrait of him on horseback is featured over the fireplace. This dinner is for adults only, 21+ / $150/person, plus tax & gratuity.

Following the dinner at 11pm, guests gather in the foyer of the Inn to receive a candle lit lantern and are guided on a 10-minute walk to the Hancock-Clark House to watch a 30-minute dramatized and theatrical reenactment as Paul Revere (and William Dawes), fellow Sons of Liberty, rode hard from Boston arriving in Lexington just before midnight to warn Patriot leaders John Hancock and Samuel Adams, who were staying in town, of the impending British raid.
