Guys weekend, need advice

Planning a trip to Boston in May with two buddies from college. Staying at the Omni Parker House in downtown Saturday through Monday, won't have a car. Only things on the itinerary are seafood, beer, and a sox game. Looking to have one really good dinner probably on Saturday night. We're all adventurous eaters but are looking for something Boston-specific instead of Boston's best French, Japanese, etc . Searching through the boards, Neptune or Craigie seemed to fit the bill. Anything else to consider that shouldn't be missed?

For the rest of the meals, we're looking for casual spots. Planning on hitting James Hook for a roll, maybe Yankee seafood before a tour of Harpoon(is the Sam Adams tour worth doing?). Any recs for casual lunchs and/or good shellfish? Also looking for some good beer joints, the closer to downtown the better as these will be the last stop before heading back to the hotel. On this list are Cambridge Brewing Co and Lower Depths, but something walkable or short cab would be awesome.

Also, anywhere to get a great cup of coffee? I know that's a lot, any suggestions would greatly appreciated!
