Angeleno coming to Boston - What can't I miss?

I'll be in Boston from July 20th until the 24th. It's my first time and I would love to know what I can't miss. Thank you in advance.

        I'm willing to spend money but as a bartender, I can't go too crazy.

          To elaborate, I want a local's experience, although, Neptune Oysters seems great. Italian in the North End, perhaps.

            For Italian food in July, sure try a place in the North End (and also check the North End street festival schedule) but also head over to East Somerville to Vinny's At Night or North Cambridge to Gran Gusto.

            For other local experiences, seek out the original Pizzeria Regina in the North End or Santarpio's in East Boston. Continuing in East Boston, try to get into Rino's - if you can't, go to Rincon Limeno (Peruvian) for some kick-ass ceviche and fried seafood. Actually, just plan to go there regardless.

            As a bartender, you will want to visit Drink. Check the bartender threads for lots of discussions about other good bars/cocktails.

              Definitely get lobster roll, hot w/ butter @ Neptune - you won't find a lobster roll that good in L.A.
