Today, February 6, marks the 226th anniversary of Massachusetts Statehood. On February 6, 1788, Massachusetts became the 6th state to ratify the U.S. Constitution, thereby joining the Union.
Appropriate consumption of food/beverages include the following:

Above only a sampling -- tough to get what you want in NYC
Ocean Spray Cranberry Juice, New England Clam Chowder (Chowdah), anything from Dunkin Donuts, Fig Newtons, Sam Adams Beer (or any other delicious MA brew), cod fish, lobster, baked beans. 
And don't forget Massachusetts' very own coffee,

and Boston Creme Donuts, heart shaped for 2/14.
Fig Newtons were created in Newton, Massachusetts!

Play some basketball or volleyball, also Massachusetts creations! 

James Naismith (November 6, 1861 – November 28, 1939) was a Canadian/ American sports coach and innovator. He invented the sport of basketball at Springfield College, Springfield, Massachusetts in 1891 .

William Morgan invented volleyball in 1895 at the Holyoke,Massachusetts, YMCA where he served as Director of Physical Education.

How will YOU mark the occasion?
