Roll Up the Sidewalks

I foresaw the 2am closings of bars being a problem during convention week. The primetime stuff at the FleetCenter won't be ending until 11:00 Monday-Thursday, then it will take a little while to get out of the arena and through all of the security, and then more time will be spent dispersing around the city to party sites. Most guests will arrive to things at about midnight, I would guess, leaving around two hours to enjoy. Get ready for more griping as the convention nears, and I think the complaints are warranted. Staying out late to celebrate is an integral part of the convention experience.

This is part of why Los Angeles was a great convention site. The primetime TV stuff for the east coast happened between 5:00 and 8:00 LA time, leaving the whole night free for partying afterward.
