Anyone going to the Boston Marathon as a spectator?

In talking with the woman that I am dating, I mentioned taking tomorrow off and going down to the marathon to hang out and have a good day. So we're headed down tomorrow morning with pretty much no idea what we are doing or what to expect. Anyone have any observations/must-sees/things to avoid/etc.? Anything at all that might help would be greatly appreciated, from traffic advice, to which T-lines to avoid, to the bars and restaurants that are a must alonmg the route. Thanks in advice, guys.

- Jeff

    How was it in person?  Where were you standing? Now that you've done it, what would you recommend? I watched the start on tv and some on my computer (I hate when I have to spend a few hours in the office on a holiday).  Someday I am going to watch in person.  I hope you had fun!
