Things to know for Wednesday

It’s Wednesday, January 24 and if you were thinking about heading over to the Esplanade this morning to enjoy a nice bagel with Philadelphia cream cheese, think again. In anticipation for the Patriots/Philadelphia Eagles face off in Super Bowl LII, the Esplanade Association has issued a ban on all “Philadelphia-themed products” at the 64-acre waterfront park. The ban is said to be in effect until the “Duck Boats return to Boston’s streets”.
